    This is a very unique question. We don't get many questions about Thousand Oaks, but lucky for you... I grew up there!

    Keep in mind, there aren't a ton of touristy type attractions so my list will be short, but there are some very nice places that will give you guys the feel for the area. Most of it involves driving so you'll need a car.

    First, I would say take a drive through Hidden Valley. There are ranches and horses and white fences lining the street. It's absolutely beautiful and you'll have no idea that your in Thousand Oaks when you're there.

    Hidden Valley

    Next, I'd take Decker Canyon to the beach. It's a very windy road but with nice views from the top. Once you get down to the beach you can go north to Neptune's Net (kind of a grungy beach biker bar) or south to Malibu Seafood (good fresh seafood on PCH) Both are noteworthy stops and both have nice views.

    When staying in Thousand Oaks, you should go check out the Thousand Oaks Meat Locker. It's the place for Tri Tip (a local bbq specialty in the area). It's an institution. Go have a tri tip sandwich.

    have fun!!

    Adding to JR's answer. If you drive to the beach, you should definitely go to Paradise Cove Cafe. One of the few pieces in LA where you can sit on the sand and have a meal/drink. This is where the show "Gidget" was filmed way back in the day and an all around beautiful place.

    For day trips, I would consider a drive up the coast to Santa Barbara. And if you want to go a little further, you can head to Solvang, Los Olivos and Santa Ynez, which are located in the wine country, but easy to get to. Solvang is an old town that was founded by Danes and feels like a little Denmark (a little kitschy but still interesting). Los Olivos is one fo the more charming little towns anywhere. It used to have a stagecoach stop back in the day and is very picturesque (plus its main street is filled with winery tasting rooms).

    While the suburbia life of Thousand Oaks might resemble a scene of the "Desperate Housewives" with moms taking the kids to soccer practice and the afternoon culdesac gossip... there are some fun activities that might take a New Yorker a little out of their comfort zone!

    You must regardless of your political affiliation go to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. It's right next to Thousand Oaks. And there is...oh nothing.....just a Boeing 707 inside a wonderful building. Oh yea and a helicopter and tons of great stuff. It's a must see place.

      Nice recommendation, JP! The fact that it houses a plane.... Wow. NBD :P By the way, I'm a community manager here and I've helped you highlight the place in your answer on a map! In the future, you can do this yourself as you answer a question by simply typing the @-symbol followed by the name of the place. Take a look at your map next to your answer :) · (0 likelikes)

    If you like to hike I recommend hiking to the M.A.S.H site in Malibu Creek State Park where the TV show was filmed. It's a short drive from Thousand Oaks. Here's more info: http://www.malibucreekstatepark.org/MASH.html
