Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and museum. The library was dedicated by five American presidents in 1991. The library holds extensive archives of the presidential history of the United States: documents and photographs that hold both patriotic and sentimental value. I...
Ronald Regan Presidential Library and Musuem
Gosh, I was never so impressed by such a museum other than the ones in DC. Yet, this one wowed me! It's so interesting to see what a president accumulates by given so many gifts by so many dignitaries from all over the world. It was fascinating to see what was put in...
Air Force One Pavilion
I was in awe struck when I saw this in person and my boys could not wait to touch it and go inside it. They couldn't had designed this exhibit any better than they did. They not only had Air Force one, but all the neat vehicles that assisted the President to and from many...
Nancy Reagan was to me one of the most elegant first ladies of the white house. -- A First Lady's duty was to serve as hostess and ambassador, public servant, spokesperson and as always the loyal caring wife. Many of the dresses are on display spanning over fifty years. I...
I was impressed with all the wonderful presidential gifts. I had no idea how many these dignitaries probably collect during the presidency. President Regan’s presidency was no exception. He received approximately 100,000 gifts, not including plants, flowers, and items of...
Presidential Motorcade & Marine One
These were his actual presidential limousines and secret service suburban’s now an important part of the museums exhibit of presidential motorcades.Make sure you checkout the actual Marine One helicopter that flew President Johnson.

We spotted some evidence of a wild nightlife!!
At night the wild life comes out and hunt for their prey. The look like cougar or mountain lion tracks.

Simi Valley Car Wash
For those passing through with a dirty car. For under $11, they thoroughly vacuumed the inside (but not the trunk) and washed the outside. For an additional $2, they put on a layer of sealer wax and left a mild scent (Hester chose jasmine). They also had some really nice...
Coming from afar, Amtrak is the best bet to be dropped off right in Simi Valley. The Coast Starlight and Pacific Surfliner both stop here. Make sure someone picks you up from the station unless you have a car parked there. There's nothing at all at the Simi station, and...
Musuem Store: Gotta buy postcards at least:-)
Neat store and priced reasonable too! I bought postcards of course, glasses and T-shirts for the boys. Lots of interesting stuff to chose from!

Watch out for rattlesnakes. Watch out for mountain lions. Don't panic about them. Just be smart. No one wants to get into a fight with a human, and you'll just about always be left alone unless you do something completely idiotic.Lemme just talk about the two particular ones...
I live in Simi Valley and our freeway is one of the ways to get from Ventura to Los Angeles or vice a versa. Every day some of the worst drivers in the world pass through here. sometimes it's faster just to drive the city streets not to mention less stressfull. Ahh the 118...
Box Canyon Road
This is the first place where I ventured into the hills. There are places to pull off, but there aren't any trails. You're on your own. Great for explorers.

My neighborhood is in the hills and there are many hiking trails where you can mountain bike or just take a good, long hike through the mountains. All the trails are well maintained and marked by the city so they're in great condition.
Yubert's General Tip
The wind at the top of Rocky Peak was blowing between 80 to 90 mph. As you can see from this picture, we're leaning into the wind, otherwise we would have been blown over the top!This place should have been called Windy Peak.
