Camarillo is a city in Ventura County, California with a population of 65,201 at the 2010 U.S. Census. The Ventura Freeway (U.S. Route 101) is the city’s primary thoroughfare. The City was named after Adolfo and Juan Camarillo, two of the few Californios (pre-1848 California natives of Hispanic ancestry) in order to preserve the city’s heritage after the arrival of Anglo settlers.
Located just an hour north of Los Angeles alongside Highway 101, Camarillo is steeped in small-town charm and rich agricultural history. Step back in time at historical attractions like the Camarillo Ranch and the Commemorative Air Force museum or live in the moment at a local roadside farm or unique exhilarating attractions like Skydive Coastal California or Skyrider Ultralights.
In the city, one of the biggest draws is the discount shopping at Camarillo Premium Outlets as well as local museums and the charming streets of Old Town Camarillo. With 33 unique venues and more than 300 days of sunshine, Camarillo is also a popular wedding destination. The City is also home to The World War II Aviation Museum which houses a rare assortment of war-era planes that are still flown in air shows today. People can see the world’s largest collection of bird eggs and nests at the Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology.
