Under California Skies

<p>One of the best attributes of Thousand Oaks is the availability of outdoor recreational facilities and venues. Santa Monica Mountains National Park is at your door step and offers both the mountains and the beach. Gardens of the World is a fabulous place for studying plants or just strolling while for indoor entertainment, the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Center is not only a great venue but architecturally interesting too. The Stagecoach Inn is a museum worth exploring as well. It was an original stagecoach stop for the Santa Barbara to Los Angeles route. With top notch museums and other sites so readily available, your Thousand Oaks apartment really is near it all.</p>

Dining off of the Freeway

<p>While many of the favorite restaurants in Thousand Oaks are located near the Ventura Freeway, you're bound to find some neighborhood type places. In the meanwhile, the local favorites range from Marcello's for Italian to Los Dos Amigos for Mexican cuisine. Mastro's is everyone's pick for steaks and fish plus it has a great lounge area. The White Elephant may be a chain type Thai restaurant, but this one has outdoor seating and very good food at excellent prices.</p>

Dancing on the Ceiling

<p>At night, you'll find plenty to do. At the Sunset Terrace you can dance on platforms above the bar, but if like dive bars head straight to PJ's, or the Crown and Anchor. And just down the road in Westlake Village, you'll find a number of good wine bars like Bella Vino. Wherever your Thousand Oaks apartment might be, you'll end up finding both neighborhood bars convenient as well as all the really splashy spots in Los Angeles.</p>
