Camarillo- some details

Camarillo is located in the eastern Oxnard Plain, with the Santa Susana Mountains to the north, the Camarillo Hills to the northwest, the Conejo Valley to the east, and the western reaches of the Santa Monica Mountains to the south. We chose to stay here since it was very close to the Channel Islands National Park and we were on a quest to see some whales! :)

As we set off we noticed some pumpkin fields and it was very refreshing to see agriculture that was less mechanized and more labor intensive. Tractors and farmers reminded us of the traditional ploughing techniques used in India and a friend and fellow traveller recounted her days of tractor driving and fertilizer experiences back in Madurai in India :)

Our comfortable stay

We stayed at Good night lodge just behind the Camarillo Outlet Mall. It was a comfortable hotel and the staff was really helpful. However the 'free breakfast' consisted of only some mini muffins and coffee so we had to head otu for breakfast anyways. We also didn't have free internet, so our breakfast choice was always Panera Bread in the mall that gave us great food and the internet for our itinerary planning. To top it all Adhi (a friend who was travelling with us) was a loyalty member with Panera and hence we got a buck off of our beverage order! :)

The Premium Outlet Mall

This place is huge, so plan to spend atleast a full day if you want to shop at the Camrillo Premium Outlet Mall
