Location: Located in the mountains above Santa Cruz and Capitola, Boulders Writing Retreat is close to many fabulous attractions including Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur to the south, San Francisco and the Napa/Sonoma wine country to the north. Day trips in either direction are worth taking. After all, you can’t write all the time.
Climate: Moderate. Normal winter temperatures run in the mid 60’s during the day, and mid 40’s at night. Winter months can be rainy and foggy. Bring layers and lightweight coats. Summers are 10 to 20 degrees warmer with occasional hot spells, though it always cools down at night. During dry months, fire can be a danger. Remain aware.
