Capitola in the Springtime
First of all, we'd like to congratulate out winner Charlene Wilcynski, we think she captured the essence of Capitola in the spring perfectly...
"I love Capitola for many reasons, but the most important reason I love Capitola more than anywhere else is because every time I visit it feels like home. While walking Esplanade, coffee in hand, watching my husband and son surf, I never feel like a guest, but right at home. It’s a great feeling when the scenery is so gorgeous as well. Everybody in the Village is so welcoming and from the few years we have frequented Capitola some even know us by name which is a great feeling to come back to time and again. Thank you to all who help make Capitola a safe, pleasant and most of all, FUN place to visit. Where it's beautiful, there's plenty to do, the locals are friendly and welcoming, and it feels like your home away from home."
We love how much you love Capitola! Here are some other great submissions that help remind us why Capitola is so lovely, especially in spring!
"I spent most of my summers and Easter breaks in Capitola all through the 70's and 80's. My sisters and I roamed the streets, the shops, the Skee-ball joints, and of course the beach. Our great Aunt and Uncle lived in the Jewel District, so we'd fill up the wagon in the morning and head down the hill and stay all day in the village and beach. Can't wait to visit again."
"Capitola and it’s community is as remarkable as it gets. One of my favorite things is the Capitola Village. The Capitola Village embraces a small town feel with its unique, quaint Mom and Pop shops, amazing local restaurants, and amazing views. The vibe of the Village community is relaxing and peaceful, yet it thrives with activities and events for everyone. (Even fur babies). Capitola offers live music, Art and Wine Festivals, movies, concerts at the beach, local coffee, and ice cream shops. Or ditch the pavement to build a sandcastle, go paddle boarding, and surfing. The journey is yours."
"Spring mist rolls back off the ocean to reveal the beautiful sight of the sun shining on Capitola's fabulous city. Ahh..the relaxing, shopping and eating is the best on the central coast! My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE PLACE TO BE !"
"I “Love” Capitola. I have been going there since 1950 when my Family spent our Summer Vacations there. We often took daily early morning walks on the Beach and as we walked back through the Sweet Town to our Rental you would catch the alluring aroma of fresh backed Breakfast Pastries wafting through the morning air. I even spent my Honeymoon there in 1961. I go back to that Sweet City whenever I am able."
