Close to L.A., but a World Away

Named for its most abundant wildlife–los conejos, Spanish for “the rabbits”–the Conejo Valley has become one of the premier communities of Southern California. Tucked away from the bustle and congestion of Los Angeles and the heat and smog of the San Fernando Valley, the  Conejo Valley offers ideal living and working conditions. Thousand Oaks consistently maintains one of the lowest crime rates in the nation for cities of its size. The area’s public schools are highly regarded. And the air quality is among the best in Southern California.

Population, Features, Climate

Home to more than 160,000 people, the Conejo Valley is close to the beach and other  major Southern California attractions, yet still retains its rural atmosphere. In fact, the City of Thousand Oaks maintains more than 14,000 acres of open space, miles of hiking trails and numerous other parks and recreation sites. The Valley is cooled by coastal breezes and rimmed by scenic mountains, giving it an inviting climate all year round.

Business and Employers

Major local employers include Amgen, Well Point Health Networks, Los Robles Regional Medical Center, Dole Foods, Teradyne,, Xircom, Jafra Cosmetics, Teledyne Electronics, In addition, the area is home to many small entrepreneurial companies, both high-tech and service-oriented, and it has a four-year college–California  Lutheran University.

Culture and Recreation

Outside of school and work, the Conejo Valley offers a host of cultural and outdoor activities for children and adults. Thousand Oaks’ new Civic Arts Plaza, featuring an 1,800-seat auditorium as well as a 400-seat theater, headlines big-name shows and performers, as well as local talent and a lively children’s program. Residents can also horseback ride along  rugged equestrian trails, visit the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, explore the Stagecoach Inn Museum or the Chumash Indian Interpretive Center, sail across Westlake Lake, take a 20-minute jaunt to the beach, browse in the Thousand Oaks city library or shop at specialty stores, boutique malls and The Oaks regional shopping center.

Once the habitat of the peaceful Chumash Indians, followed by the Spanish explorers, soldiers and land grants, the Conejo Valley of today ensures a quality life to those who are fortunate enough to live, work and play between its tranquil mountaintops.
