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.

It is a very safe and family friendly environment. The community is well kept and is in a perfect location. You can either go to Malibu which is just shy of 30 minutes away, or you can go to Ventura which is also about 30 minutes away. You can also go to the mountains to go skiing. It is in between gorgeous mountains and the weather is just right! Thousand Oaks has plenty of schools with great teachers.
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.
