Capitola Beach, there's just something about it. I love the view, the water, beach, restaurants and bars and the people! It"s one of those places that you just want to keep going back to. If you have not been, you need to visit.
One of the Pacific Coast Greatest Stop
I absolutely love Capitola as a beach town. Each shop has its own character and you are sure to find something of interest. The Thomas Kincade gallery has a large number of Disney paintings that are sure to put the Child like spirit into your day. Stop for Pizza at Pizza My Heart and get a T-Shirt. its totally worth it, I lived in Brescia, so i know about authentic italian pizza. I also recommend MargaritaVille for a good nachos and drinks with the best view. My favorite place for coffee is Mr Toots, lovely little place right on top of MargaritaVille, last weekend we went and was music End your night at the Paradise Grill for a number of great drinks and calamari.
