Watsonville, CA is a little known destination just south of Santa Cruz and just north of Monterey.  This lush agricultural area offers visitors a number of amenities ranging from agriculture tourism to days at the beach, from wine tasting to rugged hikes.  Enjoy the rich culture of Watsonville and stay for much less than you can expect to pay in our more well known neighboring towns – and be minutes away from redwood forests, majestic mountains, beaches and more!  Use the links above and to the left to learn more about what Watsonville and the surrounding area have to offer you and your family.
