The city's wharf area has a distinctly European feel, while its many galleries, dining spots, boutiques, shops and locally owned businesses create a unique atmosphere that is strictly Capitola. Those searching for Capitola apartments for rent will be delighted to discover one of California's best-kept secrets.

Living in Capitola, CA

The land that would become Capitola was originally home to a vibrant village of the Soquel Native American tribe. After Mission Santa Cruz was established in 1791, Americans of European descent began to settle the area. Although the area has been home to residents for centuries, Capitola wasn't incorporated until 1949. Throughout the city's history, fishing and other water-related industries have played a large part in local growth. Capitola's history of economic prosperity continues today, as numerous employment opportunities are location within the city. According to City-Data, Capitola's population increases by about 13 percent on workdays due to commuting.

Capitola Attractions and Special Events

Capitola is home to New Brighton State Beach, a lovely retreat situated on the Monterey Bay. Featuring picnic areas, swimming beaches, fishing locations and a pine and oak forest, this natural respite from everyday life is a welcome treat for those living in Capitola rentals.

The city's annual Capitola Begonia Festival is another local favorite. This happy occasion celebrates the region's native begonia flower, which was a prime part of the city's early history. Between 1930 and 1970, approximately 90 percent of the world's begonias came from Capitola. In 1952, the first Begonia Festival kicked off and began a longstanding tradition of dancing, concerts, artwork, games and movie screenings.
