Camarillo offers a wide variety of options when it comes to shopping, dining and entertainment. The restoration of the "Old Town" area has added a number of shops and restaurants for residents to choose from. For those seeking a bargain, the Camarillo Premium Outlets feature over 125 fine outlet stores, including some very upscale names you won't find at other outlet malls. Camarillo also fills the niche of the smaller, specialized shopping experience very nicely with many community-oriented shopping centers. Another feature of Camarillo is the old fashioned Farmer's Market that takes place every Saturday morning on Ventura Boulevard in Old Town. Casual and fine dining options are also plentiful in Camarillo, with some boasting to have the finest seafood you could imagine.
Camarillo is well represented with cultural activities. This includes the Camarillo Arts Council, including the Summer Concerts in the Park; the Camarillo Community Theater; the Camarillo Children's Theater; Community Band Concerts; the Camarillo Art Center; the Camarillo Celtic Festival; the Camarillo Fiesta Association and Annual Fiesta and Street Faire; the Pleasant Valley Historical Society; and the Camarillo Ranch Foundation.
Occupying just over 19 square miles of land, the city enjoys an unusually high percentage of college-educated and professionally employed residents. That has led to Camarillo becoming a popular location for the high tech and specialty products industries. The city’s many newer business parks combined with its superior weather and rural surroundings are attracting a number of quality firms.
Camarillo's students attend public schools through the Pleasant Valley, Mesa Union, Somis Union and Oxnard Union (High) School Districts. Four of the Pleasant Valley School District schools have received state or national recognition for academic excellence. Camarillo's high school students have achieved some of the highest Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores in Ventura County and generally rank well above state and national averages.
There are also over 20 fine privately run schools and preschools in Camarillo. Just south of Camarillo is the newest member of the California State University System, California State University at Channel Islands (CSUCI). Moorpark, Oxnard and Ventura Colleges are three fine junior colleges, all located within a 15-mile radius of Camarillo.
Agriculture has played an important role in the historical development of Camarillo and Ventura County, and the General Plan encourages the continued viability of agricultural activities as a source of economic sustenance, as a definition of the physical limits of urbanization and as a visible statement of the city's commitment to open spaces. Greenbelt agreements with Ventura County and neighboring cities assure that large tracts of open space will remain in place and that the pace of development will not outstrip the city's ability to provide necessary infrastructure.
An agreeable blending of cultures, ages, interests and backgrounds has created both the quality of life and sense of community for which Camarillo has long been known and of which it is rightfully proud.
