When you arrive in Calabasas you have a certain feeling--either one of anticipation that the road into L.A. will begin to pick up traffic as it becomes more congested and intense, or will begin to open to spacious expanses as the road approaches Conejo Pass where drivers are on top of a mountain and sometimes must apply the brakes and slow down when entering Camarillo.
Calabasas is an ideal exit from the Interstate 101, providing easy on-off access, quick service at restaurants, and a nice break once out of L.A. or before entering it. McDonald's, Subway, Starbucks, grocery shops, Mexican food, and pizza are a few choices to enjoy.
There are several gas stations to fill up, as well. The road exit seen in the photo is at Los Virgenes, where there is also an affordable hotel.
For those seeking to save time, take a break, fill up with gas, or find a bathroom, this is one of the best options.
Calabasas is a growing city set among the hills of the Santa Monica mountains, north of Los Angeles, Burbank, Glendale and Sherman Oaks. Nearby cities include Westlake Village, Agoura Hills and Thousand Oaks.
