Soquel (from the native American name Osocalis) extends from Capitola east and south. It was established in 1852, primarily to provide supplies and services to foresters. The village also welcomed car travelers who traversed the mountains on Old San Jose Road.
Seventeen antique shops and galleries line several blocks of Soquel Drive, Main Street and connecting roads in the historic section of Soquel Village, along the banks of Soquel Creek.
A drive up Old San Jose Road leads you to various Santa Cruz Mountains wineries.
