I love living in Aptos, and being a part of the Santa Cruz community. I think that there is such a unique love of life that a person can find while living there that you can only find in a few places. I definitely plan on returning to Santa Cruz county later in my life after I'm done with school. The general laid back atmosphere and the beautiful nature that surrounds the area is impossible to beat.

The police I've interacted with are always fast to respond and very kind. They go above and beyond to keep the county safe and to create a peaceful and trusting relationship with the citizens.
During the summer there is more employment.
