In the picturesque town of Aptos, it’s only fitting that there would be an eclectic array of colorful, vibrant shops to match. Aptos remains quaint and charming as ever, with its selection of stores a little more exclusive than you might find in other towns nearby.
For those interested in finding a unique memento to remind them of their time in Aptos or merely indulge in a little retail therapy during their stay, we’ve detailed a few of our favorite places for shopping in Aptos down below.
Boutiques and Souvenirs in Aptos
Located across from Seascape Resort, the Shops at Seascape Village consist of a selection of service- and product-based stores. Shop for clothing at Cinnamon Bay Clothing, pick up a gorgeous piece of jewelry from Garrett Jewelers, purchase a bottle of wine to enjoy in your vacation rental at Seascape Wine & Spirits, or peruse the vintage items at Seascape Flowers & Antiques. After fun hours spent shopping in Aptos here, try the delicious food at Palapas Restaurant y Cantina.
Rancho Del Mar is another well-known Aptos shopping center. Grab a cup of coffee at Aptos Coffee Roasting, then check out stores like Aptos Shoes & Apparel, Le Chef Kitchen Store, and Fleet Feet Sports. You can also pamper yourself with a manicure and pedicure at JC Nails or a massage at VIP Massage. If you’re planning a date night with that special someone in your life, you can purchase a lovely piece of jewelry at Aptos Jewelers, flowers at Susi’s Flowers, and a card at Safeway or Rite Aid. When your appetite is up after all of that shopping, enjoy restaurants like Sofia’s Taqueria, Showtime Pizzeria, or Erik’s Delicafe before grabbing dessert at Baskin Robbins.
Outside of these Aptos shopping centers, there are also other boutiques located around Aptos. Blue Moon Clothing Co. and Forget Me Not Clothing both specialize in women’s clothing, while Cali Kind Clothing Co. has both men’s and women’s clothing. You can also pick up a book to read on the beach at The Word Shop, or a folksy gift from Outside-In Kids or Farm Baker & Café (which also has a gift shop inside).
