5 Items to Check off Your Simi Summer Bucket List

There is a little over a month left of summer and plenty of time to complete items still left unchecked on your summer bucket list.  Here are some fun things to do in Simi before fall:

1. Take a tour of our local Museums and Historical Sites.

Skate Museum Simi

Did you know Simi Valley is home to multiple museums?  From the world renowned Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum to our local California Historical Landmark – Grandma Prisbrey’s Bottle Village, you will find interesting facts about fascinating people and step back in time as you explore hand curated artifacts.  If those don’t spark your interest, maybe Old Santa Susanna Depot Museum and Model Railroad, Strathearn Historical Park or our famous Skatelab will!

2. Finally Hike that Trail!

Simi Valley is known for its beautiful landscape and amazing trail system.  Our city is surrounded by greenbelts and wild life corridors with 50 miles worth of trails winding as far as Los Angeles.  Mount McCoy and Rocky Peak are local favorites.

3. Enjoy an Outdoor Concert

Everything moves outdoors in the Simi summertime where even the hottest day ends with a nice cool breeze.  Only a few more weekends left to enjoy concerts in the local parks, courtyards and even at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum.  Check out our event calendar and bring your friends!

4. Plan a Farm to Table Dinner

Our local Farmer’s Market is one of Simi’s best kept secrets.  Ventura County is one of California’s largest agricultural regions.  You cannot get produce much fresher than this.  The market is everything artisan from the produce and fully prepared foods (try the tamales!) to arts, crafts and jewelry.

5. Simi Valley Days Carnival and Parade!
