Capitola Beach: A Wealth of Fun and Excitement

Jan 15, 2008
There are a number of different beach resorts in the United States that people can visit and there are a number of them just within the state of California. When an industry is as prolific as the beach tourism industry is, a new place needs to put itself head and shoulders above the competition in order to convince people that going there is better than going to the typical spots.

While Capitola Beach is certainly not a newcomer to the beach tourism game, it does not have the same name recognition that other places in California, Texas, Louisiana and Florida have. However, it does have a great list of activities for people to choose from.

Water Activities: The biggest reason that most people go to the beach is to be near beautiful water and Capitola Beach provides a lot of this, along with a plethora of activities in that genre. People can simply swim in the water, or they can take advantage of the infrastructure available in Capitola Beach to rent boats or jet skis to take out to the open waters. You will find, however, that in Capitola Beach the variety of activities that are available tend to mean that water activities do not dominate a person's daily plan as they might at other beach resorts.

Concerts: Because of the great weather and the good time, many people play concerts at Capitola Beach. In fact, there are concerts available every Wednesday during the summer from six in the evening to eight in the evening local time. These will be a combination of known singers and up and coming locals with a sound quality and style that impressed the people in charge of arranging the concerts.

Ticket prices vary but are usually quite reasonable and of course the beach is nearby if you want to get in some twilight swimming after the concert ends.

Parades & Festivals: Capitola Beach is not a very big place, with the larger area of Capitola only having a population of around 10,000 people. This means that it has some of that small town charm that people love and the locals are constantly organizing different things for people to take part in regardless of whether they are tourists or natives of the area.

Whether they are doing a Canine Parade and Festival one day or an Art and Wine festival the next, you can count on some very interesting festivals being available to tourists that visit Capitola Beach.

Cleanups: Capitola Beach relies on the environment around it for a lot of its economic growth and like most places where this is true the residents have a very strong protective streak when it comes to the environment.

Rather than being sordid and unpleasant affairs however, cleanups are social events that could quite well fit into the purview of a tourist that wants to learn about the community they visit. It would be akin to seeing a local sporting event or town hall meeting in another place.

For young and old, for sun-lovers and wine drinkers, for anyone who likes to relax and have fun - Capitola has a lot to offer. Feel free to visit, and stay as long as you like!
