Overview of Oxnard
Since Oxnard was incorporated in 1903, it has grown from a community based in agriculture into a diverse industrial and residential development that is now the largest city in California's Ventura County. Originally, Oxnard featured pastoral scenes complete with cattle grazing and the harvesting of sugar beets and beans as the main source of income for its residents. The community continues to be conducive to small business entrepreneurship, and is known for servicing the defense, entertainment and manufacturing industries while accommodating dynamic shifts in its population and demographic. Those interested in taking advantage of a business-friendly atmosphere will find Oxnard apartments for rent to be a great choice for living in Southern California.
Living in Oxnard, CA
Oxnard is situated along a picturesque stretch of Pacific coastline, and is just 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles. Residents looking for a weekend getaway can also take a short drive in the opposite direction to Santa Barbara, one of the most beautiful coastal cities in the state. Downtown Oxnard has a thriving urban vibe, but the surrounding farmlands highlight the crops and orchards still producing high-value products such as strawberries.
Oxnard residents can take advantage of the local general service airport for daily commuter flights to Los Angeles International Airport, and Amtrak and Greyhound bus services operate out of the downtown Transportation Center. Outdoor recreations abound in Oxnard, thanks to the Mediterranean climate, and the city features the only deep water port between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The Oxnard Harbor District is an important source of local economic impact, and the commercial Port of Hueneme currently moves $7.5 billion in cargo annually; it ranks in the top 100 nationally among all U.S. ports. The Naval Base Ventura County is another significant source of jobs in the community, and has more than 19,000 employees. HAAS Automation and Proctor & Gamble Paper Products are two major manufacturers in Oxnard.
