Aptos is a nice upscale town in Santa Cruz County. The population of Aptos is about 10,000 people. However, if the population of smaller surrounding, unincorporated towns (such as Rio Del Mar, La Selva Beach, and others) is added in, it would be about 25,000 people in total. Rio Del Mar and La Selva Beach are both located on the east side of Aptos. Rio Del Mar has many custom homes that are beautifully landscaped. La Selva Beach is a small neighborhood on Lundborg and Manresa beaches. One of the nicest features in Aptos is a 10,000 acre park, Aptos Village Park, which was donated by the children of Nisene Marks after she passed away and left it to them. The name "Aptos" comes from the Spanish, who used the term to refer to the local Indian tribes -- also called Outos, Atos, and Ortos -- hence, "Aptos"! Kids in Aptos generally attend Valencia, Rio Del Mar, and Mar Vista Elementary schools, and then move up to Aptos Middle and Aptos High schools, all in the Pajaro School District. Scores range in the 70th to 90th percentiles of California public schools. Planning to commute to Silicon Valley? Think in terms of off hours, telecommuting, and even taking the bus, as Hwy 17 can be nothing short of hellacious.

Aptos is located just east of Capitola, and north of Highway 1. Another unincorporated town, like the neighboring towns of Soquel and Live Oak, Aptos has a country feeling to it, with lots of mature trees. There are some quaint little old shops and some long-tenured restaurants to enjoy. The school system is considered good, and the town boasts a 10,000 acre park, Aptos Village Park, which also happened to be very nearly the epicenter of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. But don't hold that against this charming town or the beautiful park. If you visit, you'll enjoy them both -- we promise!
