Thousand Oaks has two shopping malls.
The first mall is the Oaks Mall
. This mall is situated right off the 101 freeway and can be accessed from either the Moorpark Road or Lynn Road offramps. In addition to various stores, this mall also has a food court, several restaurants such as The Cheesecake Factory, and an AMC movie theater. On Thursday afternoons there is even a farmer's market just past the movie theater.
Next we have the Janss Mall
. Located across the street from the Oaks Mall, this is a smaller "open air" mall. In here you'll find a Gold's Gym, a Regal movie theater, and several restaurants and a local brewery tasting room.
At the intersection of Westlake Blvd and Thousand Oaks Blvd in the city of Westlake Village, there are several strip malls with a variety of stores and restaurants. The largest of these centers is the "Westlake Commons" which is on the south east corner. This has a Nike store, a Cineopolis movie theater as well as a Paul Martin's and a Marmalade Cafe, which is a great breakfast and brunch spot.
In Simi Valley there is the Simi Valley Town Center
, which is an "open air" mall with several shops, dining establishments, a movie theater and a museum. If you're looking for something for the kids to enjoy or even the entire family, there is an art studio run by a friend of mine called "Ninja Toons
" that teaches drawing and has themed live drawing nights.
