Since 1927, hundreds of movies and television shows have been set on the 2,700 acres of Paramount Ranch. You might recognize the classic western town setting from your favorite movies and shows, like The Mentalist, Weeds, Westworld, and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. A short hike along the stream and up a hill leads to an overlook over the western town.
Located in Simi Valley, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library commands a majestic setting on top of a mountain. Walk through an actual Air Force One airplane and Marine One helicopter, see a section of the Berlin Wall, and learn more about Ronald Reagan—from his childhood through presidency.
On a clear day in Conejo Valley, drive through the majestic Santa Monica Mountains and be rewarded with views to the Pacific Ocean. Mulholland Highway is perhaps the most popular road trip in Conejo Valley but take time to explore and find your own favorite. Most roads on the south side of highway 101 eventually lead to highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway, PCH) in Malibu.
Carved out of Agoura Hills and named after the famous New York state university, Cornell California is one funky place. The village consists of a few buildings and has a classic, old time, wild west feel. Cornell Winery supports local wineries and craft artisans.
Located across the street from Cornell Winery, Peter Strauss Ranch offers hiking, picnicking, and summer concerts and other events. A funky art exhibit recently ended but we saw a few remnants during our visit.
Visit Stella’s for the entertaining menu but stay for the delicious food. I mean really, come on, one menu item is the Patty Hearst, a fully loaded hamburger with a missing patty. Get it? Stella’s captured my heart—through my stomach, as the saying goes—with this King’s Hawaiian Bread French Toast.
As if I would not be impressed with a place serving local craft beer, cool food, and wonderful specials at 3pm, we walked into a filming of a Travel Channel show. So, yes, I am impressionable, but if Ladyface is good enough for the Travel Channel researchers, it works for me.
