Thousand Oaks Reviews

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.
Review Thousand Oaks
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.
I grew up in this area and I absolutely love it! Thousand Oaks is a very safe, family friendly community with a wonderful sense of community. The only thing that concerns me with Thousand Oaks is that the cost of living has spiked considerably since I first moved here. Thousand oaks Is my ideal place for me to raise my future family, but It may not be possible due to the hefty price tag.
