A pretty awesome town in California. The locals are all cool with you so long as you don't act like the tourist you are, and share their same open mindedness.
However, they're only 'open minded' as long as you share their exact mindset.
It's a great town when you're living there, but once you move away and gain a little perspective, you tend to realize how stuck in their ways all the people are.
Local(at a coffee shop): Pshaw. Look at those girls. They don't know where they're at, obviously.
Ex-Local, looking over, seeing three girls in regular work wear: skirts, high-heels and nice shirts): What are you talking about?
Local: They shouldn't be here with their nice clothes. No one local would ever dress like that. Break out from the mold! This is Santa Cruz, not San Jose!!
