Escape to relaxing Simi Valley

Surrounded by rolling hills and forested mountains, Simi Valley feels worlds away from downtown Los Angeles. Whether you want to stretch your legs on scenic hiking trails, day trip to Disneyland, or explore offbeat attractions like the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum, Simi Valley is a great base for your SoCal vacation. Just 30 miles to the south is sun-kissed Malibu. From its golden stretch of sand to its oceanfront mansions, Simi Valley vacation rentals offer unprecedented access to California's legendary beach town.

Things to do

Day tripping to Disneyland from Simi Valley

For most vacationers, Simi Valley serves as a base for exploring sun-drenched Southern California. Disneyland is eternally popular with families, with the drive to Anaheim taking just 1.5 hours. Closer to home, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum gets you up close with an original Air Force One plane while skating fans will relish a trip to the Skateboarding Hall of Fame and Museum. With spacious living areas, private pools, and lush gardens, Simi Valley vacation rentals are the perfect way to enjoy a family vacation in Southern California.


A walk on SoCal's wild side in Simi Valley

While downtown LA is all about glitz and glamor, Simi Valley is a great place to experience SoCal's natural beauty. Stretching for 7 miles, the Arroyo Simi Bike Path will take you past ancient oak trees, flower fields and bubbling streams. Las Llajas Canyon offers sweeping views of Wood Ranch, Bard Lake, and the greater valley, while Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park is dotted with rugged trails and pretty picnic spots. Of course, if you're craving an urban scene you can always daytrip to downtown LA.


Sun and soul music in Simi Valley

Southern California is famously sunny, which highs soaring to the mid-80s during the summer. If you're planning on hiking or spending the day at Disneyland, late spring or early fall bring cooler weather. The city always fills up fast during May's Cajun & Blues Music Festival. After a long day of dancing there's nothing better than cooling off in a private pool, so be sure to book your Simi Valley vacation rentals well in advance. If celebrity spotting is on your radar why not visit from December to February, when LA throws famous awards shows like the Academy Awards and the Grammys?
