It’s different. It’s unexpected. It’s the Conejo Valley.
Pronounced “koh-neh-ho” and translated to “rabbit” in Spanish, this SoCal region is found along U.S. 101’s well-known path running between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, though it isn’t an extension of either.
By contrast, it’s a 180-degree escape from the frenetic bustle of L.A. (the nation’s second largest metropolis) and a distant cousin to the sophisticated haven of Santa Barbara (aka the American Riviera). In actuality, the Conejo Valley – comprised of the cities of Thousand Oaks and Agoura Hills – is a 21st century representation of life in the suburbs during simpler times.
