It has been said that Camarillo is more than just a city, but a community of astonishing Ventura homes. Set amid rolling hills and verdant fields, Camarillo is situated between rugged mountainous terrain and the Pacific Ocean. The city has evolved from a small agricultural town to a masterly crafted family-oriented community. Although it is only 45 miles away from downtown Los Angeles, Camarillo is a world away from the stress of big city life. Camarillo is a utopia of quality neighborhoods, excellent educational opportunities, recreational and cultural pursuits and a great year-round climate. Camarillo offers residents upscale and boutique-style shopping opportunities and a Saturday morning Farmers' Market, filled with baked goods, fruits, vegetables and fresh flowers along Ventura Boulevard in Old Town. Camarillo is also home to a thriving business community. Excellent jobs in the biotechnology, bio-med, telecommunications, manufacturing, tourism and military sectors make ample opportunities to flourish in the city. Camarillo is just over five miles from the coast, providing an ideal getaway for swimming, sunning, sailing and surfing. Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the proximity to the Channel Islands National Park, Santa Monica Mountains and the Los Padres National Forest.
