LIving here in Watsonville surrounded by agriculture and wet lands, has being a great experience! One gets the opportunity to learn why its important that certain chemicals can be used in the agriculture, because it can harm our environment. One can also see that residents from this city are concerned about pollution. I would not consider twice about living in this city because I have being able to learn to care more about the environment since I am surrounded by wetlands.

I love living in the small rural community of Corralitos, Ca. It is roughly 10 minutes from Watsonville,Ca and 10 minutes from Aptos,Ca. It is a community that prides its self on agriculture. There are great places to go to enjoy the outdoors. I have a cattle dog and I take him on walks along neighboring farm land regularly. Corrilitos is about 10 minutes away from the coast which is another reason why I love it here. It is a must see.
There is very little crime in Corralitos, Ca. It is a very rural town made up of mostly farmland. There is very little crime in this area. Which is another reason why I love living here.
