Camarillo

Welcome to Camarillo

 

A quiet, peaceful equestrian sanctuary with serene countryside views

 

Bright blue skies and lemony sunshine set the tone for a breezy, tranquil lifestyle in Camarillo. Located in Ventura County, about halfway between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, Camarillo sports a delightful under-the-radar feel while also providing plenty of shopping and entertainment for residents. The atmosphere is as cheerful as the weather, and the network of hiking trails and parks make outdoor recreation a coveted way to spend the day. 

 

A former ranch town, Camarillo proudly displays its rich agricultural history. Year-round farms welcome locals to pick their own fresh fruit and vegetables, and museums and historical preserves shine a spotlight on days passed. Once inhabited by the Chumash tribe, Camarillo was developed into a 10,000-acre swath of ranchland owned by the Camarillo brothers, Juan and Adolfo, whose names you still see on schools and streets around town. Today this quiet little enclave is a countryside respite of bucolic beauty and friendly smiles.

Local Lifestyle

 

The atmosphere in Camarillo is bright and warm as if the sun itself were dictating the town’s way of life. Residents prefer to bask in the easy-going lifestyle Camarillo affords and happily leave the idea of the hustle and bustle to Los Angeles, which they can visit in less than an hour should the mood strike. 

 

Locals might stroll through the Old Town district, perusing the stylish boutiques and enjoying the postcard-perfect charm, or perhaps the day calls for a long bike ride through Calleguas Creek Park. Whether you are looking for a quiet morning of lattes and farmers’ market shopping or an afternoon in the cool of the town’s storied museums, Camarillo has countless ways to pamper residents.  

 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

 

Camarillo may cultivate a serene air, but the culinary scene is electric with global flavors and refined tastes. Twenty 88 sets the tone for excellence with sophisticated spirits and an elegant New American menu. Featuring dishes like sea scallops with lobster risotto, it’s easy to see why this bistro has consecutively been named Camarillo’s top restaurant. 

 

The bright, airy dining room at Lure Fish House perfectly captures Camarillo’s personality, and the exquisite menu of locally sourced seafood satiates the most particular of palates. Lunch brings an impressive array of oyster bar offerings, while dinner is the stuff of epicurean dreams, from the blackened wild rockfish to the miso-glazed sea bass.  

 

Some nights call for a good, cold beer, and the carefully crafted selections at Institution Ale Co. hit the spot. This craft brewery and tasting room invites guests to relax with micro brews and decadent gastropub fare. 

 

Ranch life and Old West style come to life at Wood Ranch, a lively barbeque restaurant known for great burgers, epic portions, and a family atmosphere. Sit at the bar and catch the game with friends while enjoying a whiskey flight and classic American pub fare, or make it a post-Little League dinner with barbeque chicken, ribs, and macaroni and cheese.    

 

Things to Do

 

Step back in time to the early 1900s at the stunning Camarillo Ranch. An idyllic setting for private parties and galas, this stately property features a gorgeous turn-of-the-century mansion set on 4.5 acres of impeccably manicured lawns. The award-winning catering services, superior hospitality, and breathtaking backdrop make this a perfect place to celebrate life’s milestone moments.

 

Ask any Los Angeles resident about Camarillo, and the first thing they’ll gush about is the Camarillo Premium Outlets. This unrivaled outlet center features fashion’s greatest players, including Armani, Jimmy Choo, St. John, and Versace.   

 

The skies come alive at the Commemorative Air Force Museum, a fascinating museum of military displays, artifacts, and vintage airplanes. Located in the Camarillo airport, this impressive facility invites guests to go for a ride in military planes and meticulously restored fighter jets. 

 

Life in the countryside calls for horses, and the Las Posas Equestrian Park delivers a leafy oasis designed for riding. Shady, tree-canopied trails, and two riding rings spread out over the park’s two acres, and equestrians are invited to explore the area on horseback.
