Last evening, I parked my car at the Capitola Community Center, and my doggie and I walked through the charming Jewel Box neighborhood, down the Union Pacific Railroad stairs to Capitola. The Jewel Box is a very eclectic neighborhood up the bluff from the Capitola Village and Beach. The streets, not surprisingly, are named after jewels:
- Ruby Ct.
(The last three streets, I consider an adjunct to the "official" Jewel Box neighborhood, which is laid out on a grid. The "official" Jewel Box is comprised mainly of single family residences, with some duplexes and multi-res structures thrown in for good measure. Diamond, Jade, and Ruby Ct. are home to condos and/or manufactured homes, and are affordable choices for those wanting to live the Capitola experience. The beach, the Village and shopping are all within walking distance.
Some of the homes in the Jewel Box proper, are very quaint. These cute homes were on our route last night:
