Waterfront Communities in Santa Cruz

Billed as California’s original surf city, Santa Cruz has a lot to offer for those people who are longing for a neighborhood that offers ocean and seawater activities whole year round. Located in the northern tip of the Monterey Bay, bordered by the Pacific Ocean, it animates with windswept beach waves and comely shorelines endorsed by the amenities of eating and drink hubs that abound.
Santa Cruz is a den of redwood forests. It has roller coaster-like paths because of these redwood trees that overlook its waters that any local resident can appreciate. When gentle waves are your fancy, Capitola and Cover Beach are the areas to choose from, especially when you are a novice surfer.
For would-be residents, the roaring water adventures is not the only attraction that makes you stay put in Santa Cruz. The western side cradles the Natural Bridges State Park, which has small spots of sandy beaches with grasses and headlands that are untouched. You can have fun harvesting starfishes, hermit crabs, and sea urchins when the tide ebbs down. Add the bonus of a 15-minute drive to the northwest part of Santa Cruz thereby reaching Davenport, where more imposing shorelines and coastal farms await.
Ready to choose Santa Cruz? That's a very wise decision since the city also provides a variety of healthy eating nooks just like its long-running New Leaf natural food market.  You can enjoy the freshly made vegetable sandwiches, and fresh seafood barbecues.  More so, locally produced and non-NGO fruits are a local stock up. The picnic style of eating is permitted on most beaches. If you don’t have a chance to pack those baskets though, the Picnic Basket comes to your rescue. A picnic planning pro, it provides for low key lunch stands ready with the classic beach snacks, loaded with organic ingredients.
According to NewHomeSource, there are forty-five new home plans, as well as a number of move-in units presently available in their listings. In addition, Santa Cruz have communities with home structures that range from 574,941-772,145 in price. So check them out and choose one for you and your family.
