Camarillo has all of this and more. If you’re considering a Camarillo apartment for your new home or you already live in this gem of a Southern California city and want to explore your surroundings, we have some places and activities that just may interest you.
Attractive Green Space
For a city with a population of less than 70,000, Camarillo has some serious parkland. On top of nearly two dozen neighborhood parks, Camarillo has seven large community parks. Several of them, including Camarillo Grove Park, Mission Oaks Park, and Springville Park, are dog-friendly. Camarillo Grove Park even has a hiking trail that dogs are permitted to roam leash-free.
Another highlight of the town’s green space is the centrally located Constitution Park, which hosts a series of free concerts and movies in the summertime. There are still three concerts left on this summer’s schedule: August 8, August 22, and September 12, 2015. The last movie of this summer’s series, When the Game Stands Tall, will be screened on August 29, 2015. Since Camarillo has such an abundance of green space, its well-maintained parks are rarely overcrowded.
Old Town Dining and Shopping
Camarillo’s cute, historic Old Town is the city’s center for dining, shopping, and entertainment. Dozens of restaurants, serving up everything from authentic Mexican and Italian eats to Mongolian BBQ bowls, can be found here. Old Town retail stores specialize in home and garden supplies, personal care, recreational gear, and fashionable clothing. Enotecas have delicious wine, comfortable, spacious venues host car shows, dance performances, and more.
Camarillo Premium Outlets
For days when the charming boutiques in Old Town just won’t cut it, the shops at Camarillo Premium Outlets are available to fall back on. A three-minute drive from AMLI Spanish Hills, the shops are the place to go for extraordinary markdowns from Armani, Banana Republic, Coach, Cole Haan, J. Crew, and dozens of other fashion designers and retailers.
If you enjoy wine, Camarillo is a great place to be. Camarillo Custom Crush, a local wine producer and bottler, showcases six new wines every two weeks, making it a place to visit time after time. Ventura County is also home to several small vineyards producing some of the finest wine in Southern California. Visitors to the area try to tackle as many of the 17 wineries on the Ventura County Wine Trail in a short time. As an apartment resident, you can take your time indulging in their offerings.
Southern California is a year-round paradise for avid golfers, and Camarillo lays claim to some of the finest courses on the circuit. A game of golf at Sterling Hills Golf Club, Camarillo Springs Golf Club, or Spanish Hills Country Club is the perfect way to bask in the stunning backdrop of the Santa Catalina mountains and enjoy the beautiful weather.
We’ve covered some of the qualities that make Camarillo such a desirable place to live, but the city’s proximity to other attractions makes it even more appealing. In good traffic, the beach is just a 15-minute drive from AMLI Spanish Hills. Santa Barbara is less than 45 minutes to the north, and downtown Los Angeles is just over an hour to the south. There’s beauty in all directions, and the community is friendly and clean. In short, Camarillo is a residential paradise.
