Northwest of Los Angeles, the Santa Monica Mountains meet the Pacific Ocean. Tucked behind those mountains it the City of Thousand Oaks. Here in the middle of the Conejo Valley, the city is full of oak trees (shocker), 120 km of hiking, biking and walking trails and that famous California sunshine. And, of course, great hotels in Thousand Oaks. If you’re looking for a place to enjoy both nature and all the amenities a city of 130,000 people can provide, Thousand Oaks holiday packages might be just what you need.
Things to Do in Thousand Oaks
If you stay in Thousand Oaks accommodation near the Santa Monica Mountains, take a hike! You could see bobcats, quail, coyotes, wildflowers and the elusive Milky Way galaxy without city lights or noise. You’re just a few miles away from gazing at the famously luxurious houses along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and of course, Malibu Beach—home to some of the best surfing in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, back in the valley, you can watch a performance or stroll through the Gardens of the World at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. Have a picnic against the backdrop of Paradise Falls in Wildwood Park, or browse the exhibits at Chumash Indian Museum. Thousand Oaks hotels also give you access to the international cuisine and the high-end shopping Southern California’s known for.
Getting To & Around Thousand Oaks
Fly into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) just 68 km from Thousand Oaks. Catch a shuttle or the bus right from the airport, or pick up the car you rented through Wotif (like a pro) for a scenic drive along the coast. What the heck?
