Some of the reasons why   I Love Camarillo:

Camarillo is a thriving community of 65,000 in the heart of Ventura County. Situated in the Oxnard Plain, and just nine miles from the ocean, Camarillo offers an appealing mix of both rural and suburban lifestyles. With an average temperature in the low 70's, and over 300 days of sunshine annually, Camarillo's climate is hard to beat anywhere. But these are just a few of the reasons why Camarillo is the best place to Live, Work, and Play!

Located along U.S. Highway 101, Camarillo is midway between Los Angeles to the south, and Santa Barbara to the north. While Camarillo is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, there are a number of convenient transportation options to reach L.A.'s important business contacts.

Location of Camarillo
A recent survey by the Pacific Coast Business Times lists the top 50 publicly traded, and top 50 private companies in the tri-counties of Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo. While Camarillo ranks only 4th in population among the ten cities in Ventura County, twelve Camarillo-based companies were among these 100 firms, including ten of the top 50 public companies. These include Semtech Corp., Salem Communications, Vitesse Semiconductor, Power-One, BioSource International, Interlink Electronics, Electronic Clearing House (ECHO), First California Bank, Advanced Photonix (API), and AML Communications. Additionally, among the top private companies are Data Exchange Corp. and Hi-Temp Insulation. Additionally, other prominent firms such as Rockwell Scientific and Deckers Outdoor have a significant presence in Camarillo.
The balanced approach to development and preservation is carefully maintained by the City's officials, who work closely with local businesses, residents and community leaders to ensure that the qualities which make Camarillo so attractive today are not overlooked in the competition for new development tomorrow.

Incorporated in 1964, Camarillo has evolved into a thriving city that today is very much like its founders envisioned, dedicated to preserving its Spanish land grant heritage without sacrificing the economic growth that is vital to the city's continued existence.
Three of the newest major additions to the City of Camarillo are:

CSUCI - California State University Channel Islands, located in the remote southern area of Camarillo.

Camarillo Library

The new Camarillo Library carries on the literary legacy that dates back to 1919 with the community's first library. Now, nearly a century later, Camarillo reaffirms its commitment to the community with a library that will Engage, Enlighten, and Excite.

With its opening in early 2007, the new Camarillo Library carries on the literary tradition that dates back to 1919 with the community's first library. At 65,621 square feet, the new library will be more than four times larger than the current 32-year-old facility. Inside, residents will find books, DVD movies, music CDs, audio books, reference books, periodicals and special collections. With this new landmark, Camarillo reaffirms its commitment to the community with an innovative resource center for today, and for generations to come.

Camarillo and the surrounding area has a temperate and livable climate.
Its location in a coastal valley brings mild ocean breezes and temperatures in the 70's throughout most of the year. An average rainfall of 13 inches occurs primarily from November to February. The city has over 300 days of sunshine a year and an average humidity of 62%.
Snow has only fallen about 3 times in the last thirty years and is seldom more than a dusting. Snow is sometimes visible during the winter months above the 4000-foot level in the mountains to the north. The proximity of the ocean sometimes causes morning fog in the spring and early summer.

Camarillo is primarily a made up of large housing tracts, with elementary schools and small serving the nearby neighborhoods. The primary public high schools serving Camarillo are:

Adolfo Camarillo High School in Mission Oaks
Rio Mesa High School, just over the Oxnard/Camarillo line.
A new high school near the intersection of Lewis Road and Las Posas Road is planned.
The YMCA recently opened a new facility on Village at the Park Drive.

The incidence of all types of crime committed in the city is far below the national average.

Many sports leagues, including adult leagues, such as baseball, basketball, football, and the largest AYSO soccer league west of the Mississippi are located in Camarillo. An outdoor in-line hockey rink was recently put into Freedom Park, near the Camarillo Airport.

Ask residents of Camarillo why it's such a great place to live and you're likely to hear many responses: "Unspoiled" -- "Friendly" -- "Clean and safe" -- "Excellent schools" -- "Caring neighbors" -- "Close to everything I need” – “still has that small town feel”. The people of Camarillo take pride in its unparalleled quality of life; from exceptionally mild climate conditions throughout the year, outstanding youth and adult community programs, thriving business economy, appealing mix of both rural and suburban lifestyles, to far-lower than national average crime rates. There are many reasons to love Camarillo...
