Scotts Valley is a small town tucked in the Santa Cruz Mountains that offers much of the same appeal of Santa Cruz. While it doesn’t sit as close to a beach as other parts of the county, it’s still close enough to state parks and local beaches that a spur of the moment trip is never out of the question.
Scotts Valley is a natural fit for those who want to enjoy all that Santa Cruz County has to offer, while still living in a smaller community and having an easier commute to Silicon Valley. You can find everything you need in town as far as food, nearby restaurants, and all the necessities of day-to-day life, but it’s also small enough that you don’t feel like you’re in a busy city. Here are some of the highlights of living in Scotts Valley.
