Soquel

 

The unincorporated, mid-county  community of Soquel is located just inland from Capitola. The unique landscape of the community blends broad pastures and hillsides that climb to the summit of the panoramic Santa Cruz Mountains.


With just over 9,000 residents, the community enjoys an atmosphere defined by friendly residents, fresh air, and charming little neighborhoods nestled among piney woods. Offering a quaint downtown district, Soquel residents frequent Soquel Village as well as the Trader’s Emporium, a distinct collection of small shops and boutiques. In addition, the downtown area is home to a surprising number of gourmet restaurants.


Duplicating images straight from a New England township, Soquel features huge, roadside oak trees and even a historic, white steepled church founded in 1868. Newcomers to Soquel will find that housing options range from modest in-town homes to rural estates located on the outskirts of town.
