The public schools in Oxnard are affordable and are great for new generations. The nightlife is swell and amazing view to study for quizezz/tests. Neighbors are generous and always have a positive attitute. When you are in the city of Oxnard your always feeling safe, secure, and stable.The diversity in Oxnard is a variety. Lastly there are so many job opportunities that I encourage everyone to look for!
The weather here is great! For a small city, it is quickly expanding. At times it still feels townsy which is nice because the city feeling can be overwelming. A lot of Hispanic history and celebration makes it feel homey. The county has so much to offer in education for myself and my son. The nightlife can be dull but doesn’t apply to me as I am single parent focused on my education. Housing here is very expensive. Although there are several low income programs/vouchers, they are pretty much impossible to acquire. The area offers plenty of nature which is favorable for those who are physically active.
