Agoura Hills Reviews

18 reviews
All Categories
Agoura Hills, CA is a wonderful place to be raised and it is also a wonderful place to raise a family. The public schools in the area are unmatchable, and it is an overall positive community for families. Cost of living here is generally expensive with the housing prices steadily rising over the past few years since the recession in 2008. There is a high demand by families to live here. For students it is ideal for going to Pepperdine University (15 minutes away), Northridge (25 Minutes Away), UCLA (40 minutes away) and USC (45 minutes- 1 Hour away) if commuting.
Review Agoura Hills
"Welcome to the Good Life" is what Agoura Hills' motto should be. Agoura is filled with rolling fields of golden grass, plenty of delicious places to eat, and people who care about their community. There are hundreds of hikes to explore, beaches to lie on, and LA is just an hour away (depending on traffic). You can feel safe taking your dog for a late night stroll or letting your kids play on the streets. Not everything is perfect in Agoura, some days are scorching hot and you never know what celebrity will be clogging up the grocery store. Nothing is perfect though, right? I would say Agoura was a great place to grow and explore, but now that I am 20, I'm ready for a new chapter. If I were to have children, Agoura would be a great place to raise them. However, the growing population of LA has begun to leak into the area and I fear that Agoura traffic and population levels are on the rise. People from all over the world have told me how quaint Agoura is, so if your looking for a chill, breezy place outside of LA, "welcome to the good life".
I think Agoura Hills is a great suburb of the area of Los Angeles. I grew up in Agoura Hills and had a lot of great times growing up. There is low crime and it seems to be an area with mostly middle to upper middle class people. I also enjoy that Malibu is about 15 minutes away. The schools in Agoura Hills are great and many of the kids seem more educated as a result. I hope to one day retire here in Agoura Hills
