  The Thousand Oaks Neighborhood  
  We've lived here for 30 years - here's what makes our neighborhood so special  
Photo Alt Tag Photo Alt Tag Photo Alt Tag Photo Alt Tag Photo Alt Tag

Thousand Oaks is the neighborhood where we live! Carol & I looked at about 100 homes when we were buying our home. We finally linked up with a local Realtor who showed us 4 homes. We made 2 offers, bought 1, and have lived in the same house for over thirty years! It's that kind of neighborhood.

We love the neighborhood... the architecture, history, neighbors, the shopping, and selling homes and real estate in Thousand Oaks!

It's a "feet first" neighborhood. Many of the homeowners (including us) have lived here for decades, and the only way they plan to leave is "feet first"

But the neighborhood isn't all alte kakke's... we have lots of families with kids. There's a wonderful playground next to the Thousand Oaks School... with a stream next to it. Several years ago the stream was "daylighted" and it's now a very pleasant park.

Our Thousand Oaks School is simply wonderful, with a dedicated staff and active PTA. Carol & I took a tour of the school ... we were very impressed with everyone we met... and wished we could attend Elementary School again.

The book "Berkeley Rocks" talks about one of the things which makes our neighborood special - the fascinating rock outcroppings. Stroll up Vincente from Colusa to Visalia to see some of our favorites.

A special treat awaits you in September - the Solano Stroll is the first Sunday after Labor Day. It's a mile-long block party with music, dance, food, community organizations - and a great parade!
