Inspire Your Inner Cultural Connoisseur in Conejo Valley

Posted on May 3, 2023 by Christina Wicker

For those that crave culture, Conejo Valley is a feast. Inspiring museums, rich history and breathtaking live performances are all yours to enjoy.

Start Off at The Nook

This place is serious about breakfast. The Nook serves 19 different types of pancakes, breakfast burritos like you wouldn’t believe and their famous 6-4-3, which is two eggs, bacon and your choice of pancakes, waffles, French toast or crepes. Halle-breakfast-lujah!

Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum

On a scale all its own, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum is enormous and set in a truly beautiful location in Simi Valley. You can climb aboard Air Force One and tour an impressive collection of artifacts, gifts and papers, along with special rotating exhibits.

Lunch at Old Place

History lovers will love Old Place. It looks like something straight out of the Old West, with a charming, rustic atmosphere and hearty American food to match. It’s popular and fairly intimate, so reservations are recommended.

Peruse the Promenade at Westlake

Spend an afternoon browsing a variety of big names and boutiques amid artfully designed walkways and fountains at the Promenade at Westlake.

Get Dorky

With more than 40 different wines to choose from and an array of alluring local beers, Cork Dork offers both the casual “cheers”-ers and the sommeliers something to sip on. Partake in a locally sourced libation before your next stop, and make sure to try out the champagne vending machine.

See a Show

One of the largest performing arts centers in the Golden State, the Bank of America Performing Arts Center is hailed as the cultural hub of Conejo Valley. Watch top-notch comedic talent, touring Broadway hits, award-winning speakers and more grace the stage.

Don’t Skip Your Night Cap

What’s a perfect evening without a night cap? As the signature glowing blue neon sign reads at Oak and Iron, “this must be the place.” Treat yourself before you turn in with unique craft cocktails you can only find here.

Plan for Extra Days

From the Stagecoach Inn Museum and the Chumash Indian Museum to the Conejo Players Theater, there is plenty of history and culture to absorb. Be sure to plan for time to enjoy it all.
