Oxnard is the largest town in Ventura County, California and is located north of Los Angeles. Originally a farming community, it is still an important agricultural center but is also home to two large naval bases due to its harbor. The 200,000 residents of Oxnard enjoy a great California lifestyle in a beautiful setting.
Most famous for crops of strawberries and lima beans, Oxnard is also one of the key manufacturing areas of southern California. The deep water port also makes it popular as a port of entry for automobiles as well as other products from the Pacific Rim areas.
Old or New
When beginning the search for your Oxnard apartment, you'll really want to consider your commute as well as your requirements for the apartment itself. Check on the parking accommodations, amenities such as pool or proximity to the ocean.
The North side of the city is more upscale with many luxury type complexes. The South side has an exciting ethnic diversity and some real bargains can be found in the neighborhoods there. Port Hueneme is close to the ocean (you can ride your bike) and will have older and smaller complexes for the most part.
Bike to the Beaches
Since Oxnard has over 20 miles of great sandy beaches, which are largely uncrowded, the city is a beach lover's paradise. You'll want to check out Mugu Rock State Park as well as the Oxnard State Beach as soon as you get settled into your Oxnard apartment.
The Carnegie Museum is great for art lovers and there is also an excellent children's museum called Gull Wings. Check out Heritage Square for wonderfully restored Craftsman and Victorian houses and don't miss the annual Independent Film Festival.
Oxnard has a wealth of things to do that can keep you busy during your leisure time.
Skater & Surfer Culture
Because of the large skater and surfer scene, punk music is easy to find at local venues. There's a growing metal scene and the Latinos provide some great hip hop.
You'll definitely want to check out places like Ventura County Music Scene, and then find your favorite music from there. For quieter and more upscale evenings, you'll want to pop into places like the P6 or Bogie's. Oxnard rocks at night!
Once in your Oxnard apartment, do check out some of the locally owned restaurants like Wood Ranch Barbeque and the Seaside Grill, a fantastic Persian place beloved in the city. You'll find most every chain type restaurant that you like and great Mexican places - especially on the south-side of town.
