The Jewel Box in Capitola is a fantastic neighborhood if you want to be able to walk to Capitola Village and Beach, restaurants and shopping.  It is called the Jewel Box because of the street names like Opal, Crystal, Emerald, Topaz, Ruby . . .  I grew up on Emerald Street and I loved being able to walk to the beach in 10 minutes or less.
