My experience with Thousand Oaks is that I'm a local resident of the city, from the people to the atmosphere, to the weather the city in a nutshell is fantastic! I've lived here for nearly fifteen-years and haven't looked back. A slight downside to living in Thousand Oaks is the lack of nightlight, meaning it isn't a great place for having fun late out. Lastly, something I think I'd like to be changed in Thousand Oaks is for better local transportation systems to be implemented on a regular basis, rather than a transportation system with very scarce hours.

Thousand Oaks is a beautiful city! There are several wonderful hiking trails and parks to enjoy. Over the last several years more and more restaurants have opened up, making it a great place for foodies. It is certainly family friendly with a number of excellent schools. Growing up, my favorite thing was to participate in the local AYSO soccer organization. Living in T.O. can be expensive and prices seem to be on the rise. It would be nice to see more affordable living options.
It's very green, with a lot of parks! Has enough places to shop but isn't too over crowded. Has great schools and safe neighborhoods. The people are friendly! They also have the best library I've ever seen with a countless number of books, an amazing kids area, and great classes/activities.
