Is Santa Cruz one of the Happiest Places in the USA?

IS SANTA CRUZ ONE OF THE HAPPIEST PLACES IN THE USA?

I read an article in the Santa Cruz Sentinel today about a new Gallup poll that was just released.  This poll gauged people's happiness and well-being in different parts of the County.  As a Santa Cruz native I was not surprised to see that Santa Cruz County ranked high in the 'Happiness Poll'.  

What makes Santa Cruz County a great place to live?  Well let me count the ways. 

This time of year the weather in many parts of the Country is horrendous.  40 inches of snow, blizzard conditions, rain, hail . . .  Today is February 16th and it is 70 degrees in Santa Cruz!  Anyone jealous? :) 

Santa Cruz BeachThis past President's Day weekend the warm, sunny weather had many out and about running, dog walking, surfing, relaxing at the beach.

 

 

 

 

Santa Cruz

 

Santa Cruz offers so many activities that we can enjoy year round like surfing, mountain biking, hiking, kite boarding, kayaking, sailing and the new favorite - stand up paddling.

 

 

 

 

Of course Santa Cruz has it's problems like anywhere but overall I feel very blessed to call Santa Cruz home.  Santa Cruz is a geographically stunning place with world class surfing and beautiful State Parks, lots of entertainment and is located close to cultural centers like San Francisco.  For more information about the Santa Cruz area please feel free to contact me anytime.
