Vacation season is here, which means it’s summertime in Conejo Valley! If you find yourself visiting when the mercury begins to rise, you’ll be pleased to find plenty of ways to keep cool while discovering another side of Southern California.

Here’s a roundup of the best ways to keep cool in Conejo Valley this summer!

 

  • If you love to shop, Thousand Oaks has you covered with the Oaks Shopping Center, which is completely indoors and offers every store and boutique imaginable. You can also pay a visit to The Lakes, an outdoor shopping plaza with plenty of air-conditioned restaurants and shops to provide a break from the heat.

 

 

  • If a museum isn’t your scene, you can get some indoor activity and exercise in at Boulderdash Rock Climbing, which offers climbing for all abilities and ages. Or head to Sports Academy where you can play all types of sports including basketball, soccer, volleyball and much more.

 

  • Of course, not everyone wants to spend their whole vacation inside. Cool off in the water at the breathtaking Zuma Beach in Malibu! Long stretches of sand and crashing waves will greet you at one of the area’s most popular beaches.

  • Come evening, the temperatures may begin to cool down, but there’s still plenty of fun waiting for you inside one of Conejo Valley’s concert venues. Catch a rock concert at The Canyon, a trendy yet comfortable venue in Agoura Hills, or visit the grand Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza for a pleasant evening of performing arts.
