How is it to live in Oxnard? Possibly moving from San Diego.
Hi! I'm actually moving to Oxnard from San Diego (been here since 2008) in two weeks with my boyfriend. Also mid 30's. His family lives there so weve frequented Oxnard a lot.
Oxnard is definitely different, and much more low key, than San Diego. But it has its draws, like the best mexican food an panaderias around, and beautiful beaches. Also I love the abundance of little meat markets/neighborhood markets, great deals on all meats!!
And Fun fact, the beaches around Oxnard dont have any bars (ignoring you, rudder room lol) or many vacation rentals (mainly residential) off the sand, so they're very peaceful and quiet. Much diff than the PB/mission beach scene!
Then again if you're in to that, like others have said, Ventura and Santa Barbara are right around the corner.
I'm excited to explore the hidden gems here!! The Collection is basically the "downtown area of Oxnard, but honestly, I like the charm of the "original "downtown area by the train station. It's a cute place to wall around, although admittedly a little run down. And not so busy. But the homes around there are gorgeous to drive through.
Anyway enough ramblings. Let me know if you have any more questions! Good luck with your potential move!
