I have been living in Santa Cruz for 6 years now and one thing is so very apparent. It's not easy to build a network and community of friends in Santa Cruz if you did not grow up in Santa Cruz. I love living in this extremely beautiful part of the world but one also needs a community of friends at the same time. You don't have to be a transplant in Santa Cruz although that is what I am. All are welcome. There is no age range or requirement. If you live in the Santa Cruz area (including all surrounding places like Capitola, Aptos, Felton, Scotts Valley, Boulder Creek, etc.) and are interested, then join up and you will be invitied to the meetups (group hikes, dinners, movie nights, backpacking, bike rides, sunsets, etc.)!
