About the Community:

The California Central Coast, which includes Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties, is an excellent place for the outdoor adventure enthusiast! With miles of beautiful coast line on the west and mountains to the east, one can literally surf in the morning and ski in the afternoon. The proximity to Los Angeles allows for easy access to cultural and professional sporting events. The primary and secondary schools are among the best in California, and the weather is wonderful year round.
