Thousand Oaks At a Glance
Thousand Oaks is a city in Ventura Country that is aptly named for the many beautiful California Oak trees that span the region. Thousand Oaks itself is part of the Conejo Valley, and this stunning valley includes a handful of other cities such as the Newbury Park, Oak Park, and Westlake Village.
A Planned Community
The city of Thousand Oaks grew out of a planned development in the mid-50s. Originally there were a couple thousand single-family homes developed in the region. Of course the development also included industrial areas and shopping centers for the community.
Like its neighboring cities, the area was once inhabited by Chumash Indians, and these people lived in the region for thousands of years before the Spanish explorers arrived. Even through the early stages of the development of the Americas, the area remained relatively quiet, and for many years there was only an inn and a few small homes that were essentially set up as a stopping point for stagecoaches travelling between the larger communities of Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.
The city itself is known for being one of the safest cities in the country, and the extravagant planning that went into the development has, for the most part, kept many of the challenges (such as dense traffic that are synonymous with other Southern California developments, to a minimum. Homes in the area have appreciated substantially over the last few decades due to the quality of industries that have moved into the area. In order to lure some of the stronger minds of the state, many of these corporations have decided to set up camp in the beautiful Conjeny Valley, an area that is arguably one of the most attractive in the entire nation.
