The weather is beautiful all the time! It stays around 60-70 degrees basically every day with a light breeze! However, we have a serious drought issue. The state of California is expected to only have a year of water left for plants and animals and humans. I have no idea what will happen once the reservoirs dry up.
Review Aptos
Beautiful area to grow up in, the beaches, local vibe, and laid back life style. Great schools with dedicated professors who generally care about the wellbeing of the students. There is so much to do with in a 15 mile radius.
The food here is so diverse and so incredible! A lot of the seafood and locally caught and fresh which is fantastic! However, most restaurants are pricey.
