Oxnard is located on the Pacific Coast in Southern California. It is approximately 62 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles and 35 miles south of Santa Barbara. With a population of 203,585 (2012) it is the largest city in Ventura County. Oxnard has a mild climate with an average high temperature of about 70º. It is always a surprise to homebuyers new to the area that only one in about a thousand homes have air conditioning!
Oxnard is named after the family that developed the first major industry here, a sugar beet factory in the 1890's. From time to time someone suggests changing Oxnard's name to something else--Channel Islands to name one example. For now it's still Oxnard! (Although many folks do refer to the area or Oxnard adjacent to the harbor and beach as Channel Islands.) That's why we say "Oxnard... more than just a pretty name."
Oxnard has a commuter service airport that accommodates small aircraft. Shuttles there will take you to and from Los Angeles International Airport. The Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard is a classic seaside area offering everything for the ocean lover--Fisherman's Wharf, the Maritime Museum, many fine restaurants and shops. It is a favorite hangout for tourists and locals alike.
Housing ranges from modest to magnificent. Oxnard has the best housing values in Ventura County. The beach neighborhoods, Oxnard Shores, Hollywood Beach, Hollywood-by-the-Sea and Silverstrand are the some of the nicest and most affordable to be found anywhere between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. The Channel Islands Marina extends under Harbor Boulevard with single family homes and condos on the water. Slightly inland, there are more housing choices, from Historic "F" Street and the surrounding neighborhood with its classic "California Craftsman" homes, to the homes and townhomes surrounding the River Ridge Golf Course. Oxnard has something for everyone.
Surrounded by acres of rich farmland, miles of uncrowded beaches, and boasting one of the best climates in the world, you may find Oxnard the perfect place to call home.
