"Just 10 minutes south of Santa Cruz is Capitola. As is every little coastal town, Capitola is charming on its own, but what’s even more special about this particular one are its colorful homes on the beach," explains Kamin.

"Built in 1924 as a seaside resort, the houses are today privately owned and known as The Venetian Court. The architecture is a mix of Mediterranean Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, and Mission Revival styles. It makes a perfect backdrop for a few selfies."
