What travelers to Watsonville are saying

Watsonville was my home town for 22 years. It has changed from a quaint small town where everybody knows your name to just a community. Still enjoy the breathtaking views from mount Madonna on highway 152 the agriculture and it still offers a great step off point for interest points in Santa Cruz and Monterey or Carmel.
