The Arroyo trail can be convenient, but it is along the wash. I'm not sure if i get your comment about Thousand Oaks, with the exception of the Arroyo wash trail they two are similar in terms of biking.


They really are not that different in price, perhaps 5~10% more for housing. But there has always been this strange (socioeconomic) divide between the two cities, with Moorpark being a mixed bag.
i always saw moorpark as being middle class to wealthy, simi being low income to upper middle class, and 1000 oaks being middle class to wealthy. what do you mean by mixed bag?

Regardless, I don't think either city is the sort of place where you can efficiently use public transit.
You can also use VISTA between TO and Moorpark, East County | VCTC (http://www.goventura.org/?q=get-there-by-bus/local-bus-services/vista/east_n - broken link), but I'll agree with you that transit is pretty bad in all three cities, which is the reason I don't live there. That said, for the purposes of this thread where the OP is looking for degrees between the east VC cities, Simi would be my choice for the reasons I mentioned.

Great weekend, all!

I think Simi Valley is predominately lower middle-class and Thousand Oaks is predominately middle-class/upper middle-class. Where as Moorpark seems to not have a dominate socioeconomic group.

I lived in Simi when I was a little kid, 1974-1979.
Back in the 70's, although it did have some decent neighborhoods, it was kind of run down and not too high class but It was the best times of my life. My parents bought our first house there in 74 for 35,000 dollars! It was a large 2-story with a 20x40 swimming pool.
I dont get out there too often anymore but Simi has turned out to be quite the nice, expensive city. Even some of the neighborhoods that I remember being dumpy as a kid, are now very well kept.
If we could afford to leave Vegas, I would live there in a second!

T.O., Simi, and Westlake Village are extremely boring places if you are a twenty-something or single 30-something looking to go out and have fun. There's just nothing to do there. Families seem to like it though.
