Living in Simi Valley, California

Expats living in Simi Valley may enjoy year round sunshine in this quiet commuter town. The city offers a multitude of transport options into central Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, and Santa Barbara. Despite its proximity to more than one large city, Simi Valley remains fairly quiet, giving it the nickname “The Peaceful Valley”. Surrounded by the Santa Susana Mountain range and the Simi Hills, expatriates living in Simi Valley can partake in a large number of recreational outdoors activities. Simi Valley is also home to the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center, a Gothic building which dates back to the mid-1920s and seats 220 people in the main theater. The Center stages several high end productions every year. In addition to that, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum can be found in Simi Valley where the 40th president was buried in 2004.

Moving to Simi Valley

Simi Valley is easily accessed from Los Angeles International Airport with incredibly good bus and train links. Simi Valley Station is serviced by both Amtrak and Metrolink along the Ventura County Line. Bus services also run 7 days a week, several times a day. However, expats moving to Simi Valley obviously have other concerns than just getting there as well. There are potential cultural differences to get used to and it can be difficult and daunting to meet new people in a foreign city. InterNations can help you connect to a community of other expatriates living in and around the area through social networking. InterNations offers online forums and discussion groups on areas such as sports and leisure, lifestyle and fashion, arts and entertainment, and much more to help you get in touch with fellow expatriates who can help you get to know the local area before you even arrive.

Working in Simi Valley

Although there is a Bank of America base in Simi Valley and an established machinery and tools industry, most expats living in Simi Valley work in one of the surrounding larger cities and commute daily. One of the biggest employers in the city itself is the public school system reflecting the family oriented feel of the place. If you have children then they can benefit from the free public school system. However, if your family is relocating with you, it can be particularly challenging and stressful to navigate the U.S. immigration system and figure out the best insurance options. InterNations content section with its numerous articles on expatriation relevant topics can provide some helpful information on this. The section not only includes a comprehensive USA guide, but also the so called Expat Magazine which features general topics such as working abroad, expat women, and international finance as well as articles written by InterNations members who can offer practical advice and insight on life as an expatriate
