A Community of Growing Opportunities

Watsonville is a California Central Coast community full of growing opportunities for individuals, families and growing businesses.

Watsonville, California is known all over the world for its long and rich heritage as a center for agriculture – especially berries. What many may not know is that Watsonville is a proving ground for entrepreneurs and businesses from all types of industries and emerging technologies. Its central location, nestled between the Monterey Bay and the Santa Cruz mountains, offers growing companies quick and easy highway access, while avoiding daily traffic snarls. Watsonville’s location is topped only by its ideal climate and the rustic, small town charm of a close-knit rural community.  The Watsonville Area offers beaches, mountains, wine, food, activities and more!

Watsonville is located 95 miles south of San Francisco at the southern end of Santa Cruz County, covers 6.6 square miles, and has a population of 52,087 (January 2015).   It is a quick 30 minute drive to Monterey and less than an hour from the beautiful Big Sur coastline.  Silicon Valley is less than 45 minutes away from our charming town.
