What a great find. Sometimes it just takes a bit of nudging to see just what "is in your back yard."
A couple weeks ago we bought a picture at an art fair. When my wife showed it so a colleague, he said, that was taken from a restaurant in Capitola.
DUH....74 miles southwest.
So, as we drove to breakfast in Danville, I suggested that this would be a great day for a drive. My wife agreed; we picked up coffee and hit the road.
Top down, sun about 80 degrees, ti was a great trip. But the town awaited....
Like any ocean side town in California, "The Beach" is "The Place" to be on a hot sunny afternoon.
This one differs a bit as there are a number of artists that set up their displays at the edge near a little park at the far right of the photo.
The park has public restrooms and showers to add to the convenience.
- Pros:Small town look and feel
- Cons:TRAFFIC can be terrible
- In a nutshell:Fun place to visit again
We didn't get a chance to stay here on this trip, but the hotel is right on the beach with walking access to "down town"... more travel advice
