"Barely a City"

Moorpark is barely a city at all. It is all the way passed Simi Valley on the 118. It is barely a hundred blocks. Then the empty hills take over. I must admit that I have never been here more than once. But the two people that I have known from here have been super cool. Not at all square like you might expected from this sort of smaller community. So I don’t know what they are doing there but their kids are growing up alright. Maybe it is the local college, Moorpark College—although I understand that it is little better than a big high school.
  • small town feel
  • nice people
  • good college
  • remote
  • boring
  • no good restaurants

dh3 understanding of Moorpark College is questionable at best - Many degree programs are offered at Moorpark College; substantive classes with qualified, experienced professors, many of whom hold a P.H.D. as well as their M.A.
