Laguna Woods to the south, and Leisure Village to the north offer the greatest number of activity options for younger, active seniors. Besides the famous 18-hole golf course, the Leisure Village Recreation Center offers residents a broad variety of social, recreational, hobby, supportive, and self-development activities. Blessed with a nearly ideal year-round climate, Leisure Village residents enjoy activities not only within the Village but also in surrounding areas. Just outside the main gate of the Village in the surrounding city of Camarillo is a small shopping plaza offering groceries, a drug store, postal facilities, varied small shops, banking and medical services. A short drive over convenient streets, or a short ride on the CAT (Camarillo Area Transit), will reach any of several local shopping malls, including the picturesque Old Town area of Camarillo, the very large and fashionable national wholesale outlet mall, national retail and grocery chains and malls, theaters, and restaurants to please every taste and budget. A twenty minute drive reaches the cities of Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Oxnard, and Ventura, as well as numerous public golf courses and uncrowded spectacular coastline and beaches, marinas, and national parks for hiking, picnicking, sunning, and sight-seeing. Good luck in your home quest!
