Information About Simi Valley Real Estate
The City of Simi Valley is located in Southeast Ventura County, approximately 35 miles from downtown Los Angeles. Located more inland than other cities in Ventura County, such as Oxnard and Ventura, temperatures in the summer can average in the mid 90’s. Due to its location, Simi Valley lies in a high-risk area for wildfires that occur every few years during the summer months in parts of Southern California. Surrounded by the Simi Hills and the Santa Susana Mountain Range, temperatures during the winter tend to be in the 50’s, but can average in the high 30’s after sunset. As stated by the United States Census Bureau, the population of Simi Valley was 124,237 in 2010.
Unfortunately, Simi Valley is best known in connection with the Rodney King trial, as the city was selected as the venue for the state case against the four Los Angeles Police Department officers who were accused of using unnecessary force against King. Despite this fact, the Ventura County Star cited a study by the University of Vermont naming Simi Valley as the eighth happiest city in the country. One of the biggest destination points in Simi Valley is the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. The library is the final resting place of the 40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, and is the largest of all of the presidential libraries. Dedicated in 1991, the ceremony saw five Presidents gathered together for the first time in United States history: George H Bush, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, and of course Ronald Reagan.
