      As a resident living in Soquel, California for the last five years, I can give this place my seal of approval. It isn't a flashy, high-profile place and that's just the way we all liked it. The people who call Soquel will home are everyday, hard-working men and women who raise their families here and to do everything they can to see to it that our community stays great. We have good schools, and impressively low crime rate, nice houses and safe, well-kept neighborhoods, and jobs in and around Soquel so no one is unemployed unless it's by choice.


      We have all the natural beauty that California is known for, and it's great to be able to head off into the woods or the mountains for a hike or some camping for some rest and relaxation. We also have some other fun things to do around here. We have the Mystery Spot amusement park, Mount Vernon Adventures which includes ziplining and challenge courses, the Capitola Begonia Festival, Santa Cruz Whale Watching (one of my personal favorites), and EXIT Santa Cruz escape games. This is a place where there really is something for everyone. I really enjoy living here.
