Santa Cruz locals are really friendly once you know them. I think a lot of them have a hard time leaving, and I would too.
Ryan Carle, Santa Cruz, Biologist
I miss seeing them, they’re not as obvious as before. The characters were more unique, and now I see more people who are more uniformly dressed, and young students.
Miranda Janeschild, Santa Cruz, Occupational Therapist
The locals in Santa Cruz are as diverse as the terrain. You have people from every walk of life, every economic status, every religion, philosophy, and viewpoint.
Stephan Hoffman, Santa Cruz, Bike Shop Guru
People here are just like anywhere else.
Dane Boberg, Santa Cruz, Retired
No valley kooks or slugs and I’m OK.
