You may have noticed that not only do we now have a blog now, we also have a new website, which we are very excited about. Our old site had become antiquated and was getting pretty difficult to update, due to random glitches, etc… The new site is much easier to update and work with, so we will have an easier time sharing information with you and it should be easier to navigate across all platforms as well. We hope you like it too! Back to the blog… this blog is meant to be shared, that is, we at the BIA want to share information and experiences with you, but we also want to include guest bloggers. We want to hear about your experiences in Capitola. We have noticed over the years that there are a lot of wonderful stories out there about childhoods spent vacationing here, fond memories visiting grandparents who lived here, marriage proposals, romantic first dates, dreamy vacations, stories about Capitola history…. We want to hear your stories! So if you are inclined to share them with us, please send them our way and we may choose yours for a blog post!! Feel free to include a photo(s) too, if you have one. The authors of the submissions we receive will be automatically entered into one of our Giveaways to win a valuable gift certificate package to Village Businesses! Please send your submissions to: We look forward to reading your stories!! Make sure to check back to read our latest blogs and to read some of the submissions we receive.
