If you are considering a move to Prunedale you may be wondering what there is to do in and around Prunedale. Knowing what activities there are in an area helps a person decide if it might be a destination they would enjoy living in. Here are some great attractions around Prundale.

San Juan Batista

San Juan Batista is just 15 to 20 minutes north of Prunedale and just off the 101. This charming small town may run at a slower pace but it is not lacking in great things to do. There is the mission, the historic downtown hub, entertainment venues, and much more. It is a popular tourist spot, but also a great spot for "locals" to get to know local store owners and find a favorite charming restaurant or place to get away on a weekend. 

Slough Trail Cherry Blossom Park Loop 

The Sough Trail system in Watsonville is somewhat of a hidden gem in a bustling city. The trails wind through Watsonville and have many great spots to stop along the way like the Cherry Blossom Park. It is just a small pocket park less than an acre with a tot lot, which is a great place to take a break if you have family with you. Another fun stop is St. Patrick's Church, a beautiful historic building. 

Monterey Coastal Trail to Castroville

Prunedale is not a coastal town but is very close to the coast. One of the largest draws to the Santa Cruz/Monterrey area is Monterey Bay. This is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the state. Prunedale neighbors Castroville which is the home to the north end of one of the most popular coastal trails in California. The Monterey Coastal Trail ends at Haro Street in Castroville. The trail is a paved rail trail winding along the coast with amazing views of the ocean. It is a 19-mile trail that takes you to Monterey on the coast. There are many great stops along the trail including the Fort Ord Dunes State Park, Monterey State Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. 

Salsipuedes-Pajaro River Cycleway

If you enjoy an easy bike ride this trail is a great place to get in a ride. The Salsipuedes-Pajaro Cycleway is 8.3 miles of partially paved trail that takes just under 2.5 hours to finish on a bike. It is popular for biking but also a great spot for walking, running, skating, etc. The trail is dog-friendly and takes you through some beautiful scenery. The trail is almost completely flat and great for the whole family to enjoy. Start at the end near Prundale and take a trip out to the other end at the beach. It is good to note that there are some rough patches to the trail with gravel and sand and to be aware of your bike tire condition. Much of the trail features the river on one side and beautiful farm fields on the other. It is a perfect spot for enjoying nature in a bustling coastal area of California
