I used to live in Thousand Oaks, just moved 2 years ago away (retired to Texas but coming back to California ASAP). I lived in T.O. since the 70's. It is a nice and safe area. Only about 20 minutes to the beach. If you want to go to the beach you can take Kanan Rd in Agoura to Malibu or the 101 north to the beaches in Oxnard or Ventura. A nice beach to go to if you have a family is in Oxnard "Hollywood Beach" (I lived there for 3.5 years oceanfront). There are lifeguard stands and a restroom and it is very nice and safe (parking might be a issue there though. I do not know if you have kids but the schools are all great in Thousand Oaks. The people are very friendly. If you want to know anything else just ask. Good Luck and enjoy!

You are incredibly fortunate to live in Thousand Oaks. I'm sure many of us would love to experience to good life up there in the Conejo Valley. Does life get much better; perfect weather, low crime, and sunshine? Morgan-Quito rated Thousand Oaks as the Safest city 100,000+. Personally, I see it the city remaining that way for a long-time to come.

Drive along gorgeous open-space along Kanan Dume Rd. to Malibu to watch the sunset. Take a dip, and enjoy the good-life. You deserve it my friend. Hey, Save me a spot on your couch!

Something else I wanted to add is when you live in Thousand Oaks you are connected with Westlake, Agoura and Calabasas to just name a few. You will find that you do not even notice when you cross into the next town. You will shop in all of these towns and go to dinner in all. You will socialize with all the people from these areas which makes your conection to people even more nicer. The 101 freeway runs right thru these areas so you just jump on the freeway and go.

Hi, Do not only look at apartments for rent but also look at condos and townhomes. Alot of people rent them out there for investments purposes, which I am sure in your field you know all about. And yes there is lots of money there in that whole area but the people are very very friendly too. Most people in that whole area work hard and play by the rules and walk the straight and narrow. They now are living the rewards from that. So I am sure you will do right by them, they are good people.

Shannon94, I bet we have more in common then you think. Hey we both ended up in Texas. Yes for different reasons but hey that is in common. Even thou we might bump heads sometimes, it's just because we are both strong opinionated women.

GlenB, Also look at Westlake, Agoura ect for places to rent. If you are near the 101 freeway you will get to work in Thousand Oaks in no time at all. It will open up your options a bit and that is always a good thing.

Thousand Oaks is a tremendous city. The area is gorgeous, and has hardly any crime. You're from Florida, you will think you've lost your mind, when you notice the California weather. We receive probably five humid days the whole year, an unlikely tropical moisture. The rest are dry and sunny. Southern California averages three hundred sunny days per year. The summer is about 95 degrees, as an average temperature in Thousand Oaks. This is warm, but it's dry heat. The winter is about 40 to 70 degrees. Why does it feel so hot in Florida?! Humidity is water in the air, that prevents someone from being able to sweat as well as their body desires, which he all know sweat is used to cool our bodies off. The people are quite friendly. I'm not sure about the Earthquake situation.
