Simi Valley, CA - Travel and Things To Do

Simi Valley is the mysterious city nestled away in the southeast corner of Ventura County, California. Bordering the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, Simi Valley is surrounded by the Santa Susana Mountain range and the Simi Hills, west of the San Fernando Valley and east of the Consejo Valley. This surreal city is the proud home to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, and also receives a great deal of media attention coupled with the riots that came as an upshot of the 1992 trial that acquitted four Los Angeles Police officers who were accused of assaulting Rodney King.

The secrets of the city go unseen, making it a modern day "Leave it to Beaver" town, that repeatedly appears on the Safest Cities in America lists.The charming hills surrounding the city, along with its opportune location so near to Hollywood, has made Simi Valley a long time favorite site of the film industry. The hills of Simi Valley have been the site of countless, long running television series, including Gunsmoke and M*A*S*H. The 1973 film, The Doberman Gang, was filmed exclusively in Simi Valley. The bank of A. Levy was the authentic backdrop for the robbery scenes, adding still to the inexplicable magic that floats within the Simi Valley hills even today. The hills offer a trail of fairy dust to follow on one of the largest equestrian trail systems in the United States.

The tales of time can be found within the innumerable original photographs, documents, and artifacts at The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. The museum holds 55 million pages of government documents and personal papers, 1.5 million photographs and over 100,000 artifacts that still remain from Ronald Regan's life and political career.

Traveling back in time is only a short drive away in Simi Valley. Even so, if time travel and trail riding still allow for few hours of daylight, the Lost Canyons Golf Club is a great way to unwind before an exhilarating night out on the town.When hunger finally strikes after such an action-packed day, Simi Valley offers several picturesque cafés to try out. Despite differing tastes, Simi Valley offers restaurants that thrill even the most persnickety of eaters.

If aluminum cans are more fitting for the nightlife cravings you feel, then Yankee Doodles is the pub for you!
