I love this town because there's always something to do! Weather it's going to the beach or walking your dogs at the park, you can always find entertainment.

Whenever I try out a new place to eat or store to go, the staff is always friendly an they make me feel welcome.

The roads and infrastructure in Oxnard are horrible and traffic is too congested. The crime rate is too high and the primary language is Spanish, so it is impossible to communicate with anyone if you do not speak Spanish. The education system is failing and the residents don't seem to value education enough to address the problem.

What stood out most is the fact that nobody seems to know how to drive. They constantly turn left at a red light and I managed to avoid a collision daily during the time that I was there. If I had been in an accident, I probably would not have been able to communicate with the other driver since nobody seems to speak English in Oxnard anymore.
