Santa Cruz County is a predominately suburban county found along the coast of California. Santa Cruz County is situated directly to the south of San Francisco and the Bay Area and is considered a part of the Monterey Bay Area. In addition to its scenic location along the northern coast of Monterey Bay, Santa Cruz County offers a storied history and rich culture dating back past the incorporation of the county in the year eighteen fifty. Santa Cruz County was one of the original counties of the state, and was originally settled by Europeans in the year seventeen ninety seven. This region was originally known as “Branciforte”, a tidbit of history that lives on in the form of a local waterway; Branciforte Creek. Santa Cruz County was once home to Mission Santa Cruz, from which it derived its modern name. Although the original mission was destroyed by an earthquake, a replica of the historic site was constructed in the early twentieth century as a memento to the strong legacy of missions and missionaries in southern California. Santa Cruz County borders the Pacific Ocean in addition to Monterey County, San Benito County, Santa Clara County, and San Mateo County. The major cities of Santa Cruz County are Capitola, Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, and Watsonville, while other notable communities and towns include Aptos, Ben Lomond, Bonny Doon, Boulder Creek, Brookdale, Corralitos, Felton, La Selva Beach, Larken Valley, Live Oak, Pasatiempo, and Rio Del Mar.
