With all the trips to Northern California, I cannot believe this was our first time in Capitola Village By The Sea. If you’re not familiar with the area, Capitola is on the coast between Monterey and San Francisco and is the most adorable little beach town. Walking through the colorful buildings gave the feel of being in another country. It was the ideal destination to curb my raging appetite to visit Cinque Terre, Italy one day.
Capitola was my Nana Rose’s favorite beach. This made our visit so much more special knowing she had once walked these exact steps. It is picturesque with a welcoming & family feel. I did not want to leave! We stayed at the Capitola Venetian Hotel which was right on the beach by the wharf. Not to mention it is only a few minutes drive away from a great Marshalls shopping trip 🙂 Our first, but not last, trip to Capitola, California.
