History

Fourth of July Parade - "The World's Shortest Parade"
Fourth of July Parade - "The World's Shortest Parade"

Aptos was named by Native Americans for the confluence of Aptos Creek and Valencia Creek. The name is Ohlone, meaning "the meeting of two creeks". "Aptos" is pronounced "app-toss", however it is sometimes incorrectly pronounced "app-tose".

In 1833 the government of Mexico granted over 6,000 acres (24 km²) of Aptos Rancho to Rafael Castro. Initially Castro raised cattle for their hides, but after California became a state in 1850, Castro leased his land to Americans who built a wharf, general store, and lumber mill. The original town was located where Aptos Village Square is now. In 1853 a leather tannery was built, and the main building is now the Apple Lane Bed & Breakfast Inn.

By 1872, Claus Spreckels, the sugar millionaire, began buying the land from Castro. He built a hotel near the beach and a summer mansion and ranch with a racetrack for his horses. A large area was fenced and stocked with deer for hunting, and became known as "the Deer Park," home of today's Deer Park Center. With the coming of the railroad, the town moved to the other side of Aptos Creek.

From 1880 to 1920 redwood timber harvesting became the major industry, and Aptos became a boom town. The Loma Prieta Lumber Company logged all of what is now The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park. The Valencia Mill logged everything to the east. Within 40 years the hills were bare, and apples became the next industry. Village Fair Antiques is now located in the old apple packing plant.

After Spreckels' death, Seacliff Park and Rio Del Mar Country Club (today's Seacliff State Beach) were developed in the late 1920s. Rio Del Mar Country Club included a clubhouse, a grand hotel on the bluffs, a beach club, a polo field, and a golf course. The estuary was filled in, and the S.S. Palo Alto cement ship was moored and converted into an amusement pier with restaurants, swimming pool, and a dance pavilion. Both Rio Del Mar and Seacliff were popular during prohibition as drinking and gambling were discreetly available. These amusements were interrupted by the great depression and World War II.

In the early 1960s Aptos began a period of rapid development, including Cabrillo College, Rancho Del Mar Shopping Center, the Seascape Resort development, and many residential developments.

Parks and Recreation

Seacliff State Beach and S.S. Palo Alto
Seacliff State Beach and S.S. Palo Alto

Aptos is home to both the The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park and Seacliff State Beach California state parks. Many Aptos beaches are popular spots for surfing and bodyboarding.

Aptos is also a popular spot for BMX biking and street skateboarding. Efforts have gone towards attempting to build a skate park in Aptos, however it appears unlikely at this point.

Aptos is also home to the annual Fourth of July "World's Shortest Parade," so called because the parade route is about one-fourth of a mile.
