A modern town within an historic community
Scotts Valley, located amidst the area’s dramatic redwood forests in the

western region of the Santa Cruz Mountains, is a small suburban community with a proud link to the past. Today, Scotts Valley’s rich history mixes with modern technology. With a history spanning more than 150 years, Scotts Today, it still serves as a vacation spot for both leisure and business travelers. The Hiram D. Scott House, built in 1853 is a Santa Cruz County Historical The peace and charm of life in Scotts Valley serve in harmony with the town’s businesses. Tucked behind trees and stylish landscaping, the hightech business world co-exists quietly and unobtrusively with family life. Innovation, growth and commerce are masterfully blended with small-town charm and a strong sense of community, providing a welcoming atmosphere for families and visitors alike. This family-friendly atmosphere even attracted celebrated movie director Alfred Hitchcock, Scotts Valley’s most famous resident. The Hitchcock family lived in a mountaintop estate for three decades beginning in 1940. More recent film projects have taken place in nearby state parks, utilizing Scotts Valley as a hub for the cast and crew. Scotts Valley hosts a number of fun, family-friendly, cultural and seasonal events. Cheer on the kids at the annual Children’s Fishing Derby at Camp Evers Park, drink in the art and culture at the Scotts Valley Art and Wine Festival, or the festive Fourth of July celebration at Skypark. There’s even something for Fido at Skypark’s new dog park, with special areas for both large and small dogs. In addition to its many events, Scotts Valley boasts a number of local parks for tennis, skateboarding, basketball, and fishing. Golfers will enjoy the short layout of the 9-hole executive-length Valley Gardens Golf Course. And the town’s close proximity to numerous state parks makes for a wonderful way to spend the day hiking, bicycling, or backpacking. Nearby wineries in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains are a scenic drive away. Scotts Valley is a mere four and a half square miles but its central location proudly serves as the gateway to the breathtaking redwood forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Just six miles from the beaches of Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley makes a perfect destination.
