Even in a tourist-oriented county, Capitola stands out as a popular destination—as it has been since 1869, when Mr. F. A. Hihn established California’s first seaside resort community in the present Village and Depot Hill areas of the city. Events such as the Begonia Festival and the Capitola Art & Wine Festival continue to draw visitors. Year-round, Capitola’s 10,000 residents enjoy the city’s restaurants, entertainment, scenic views, and shops—including the county’s only indoor mall.
