What Bert Has To Say About Santa Cruz-Watsonville Metro Area

Santa Cruz, a colorful mix of college town, beach town, and cultural center, is an attraction for hippies, yuppies and families alike. The city is famous for its boardwalk, wide sandy beaches and beach amusements. Watsonville is an agricultural center inland, and Soquel and Capitola to the south are more sedate but very attractive beach towns. The University of California at Santa Cruz brings some college life, and the population in general is highly educated. Excellent outdoor recreation is available just to the north in the coastal forests and state parks of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
