Please Tell Us About Life in Santa Cruz
Hi, Myself and my wife are thinking of moving to Santa Cruz from Scotland later this year. She is from Santa Cruz so knows her way around. We have 2 young children as well. I have been a few times and I have really enjoyed it. People are friendly and weather is nice, etc.
Just wondering what the other expats think of good areas to live (including gated communities), costs of some of the country clubs and private schools (and are they easy to get in to) and medical insurance. What is they typical cost of nice houses and are the prices going up.
I saw some of the comments about shipping stuff over so it sounds like we will avoid that.
I also wondered about crime as well. I have never felt threatened when i have been before although that was a few years ago and I guess having children makes you a bit more nervous.
Thanks for any answers to the above questions.
