El Rio Reviews

Oxnard is the best place to live. We are so close to the beach and close to our neighboring cities that makes everything so easily accesible. The weather never goes below 40 degrees and it usually stays within the 70's. The homes are big and the living is well. There is a lot to do around us and it will never be boring.
