Just inland from Capitola, the historic town of Soquel, pronounced “so-kell”, features family-operated wineries, antique stores, and a California-rustic feel. Mountain bikers flock to Soquel’s Demonstration Forest, where challenging trails offer the ultimate challenge.
Other features of this idyllic town include dining, shopping, wine tasting, and hiking. Soquel is also home to the largest park in Soquel, with playfields for soccer, baseball, and softball, playgrounds, picnic areas, and a large open space of coastal prairie terrain. On any given weekend you will find children joyfully engaged in their favorite sport at Anna Jean Cummings Park. In this very welcoming town you will find mountains, redwoods, and creeks only minutes from the beach.
