One of the largest and most well-known coastal cities in all of northern California, Santa Cruz homes and Santa Cruz rentals offer more than meets the eye. Next time you take a trip to the beach or to the popular Santa Cruz Boardwalk – one of the most popular beach parks in the nation – be sure to have a churro. The local campus of UC Santa Cruz, one of the best universities in California, is one of California’s best kept secrets. Santa Cruz real estate students attend Santa Cruz City School District, Scotts Valley Unified School District, and Pajaro Valley Unified School District as well as an impressive variety of prominent private schools. Downtown Santa Cruz is one of California’s little gifts, with a charming collection of street artists and performers on every corner, with such a lovely assortment of boutiques, small restaurants, theaters, and shops that you won’t ever want to leave this delightful seaside town. Santa Cruz rentals are ideal for commuters as well as residents, and the town is serviced by a large compilation of public transport such as the Highway 17 bus which commutes daily between San Jose and Santa Cruz.
