October weather will be warm, cold, sunny, foggy, dry and windy, and occasionally some days of drizzle.
We are near the coast so we have cool/cold nights and possibly warm/hot or cool days in October. Bring layers and a pair of flip-flops. Some classes will be held outside, so be prepared with sunscreen and a sweatshirt. We’ve been blessed with nice weather in the past, but we always prepare for the worst.
Other Things To Do
Spend a few extra days in the area to experience some of the best of Southern California. There's something for everyone! Newbury Park is just 7 minutes south Camarillo, Henna Caravan’s home base.
We are located along the coast of the beautiful Pacific Ocean close to US Highway 101, 60 miles north of Los Angeles, 40 miles south of Santa Barbara.
Check out the performance calendar at Largo at the Coronet, Soho in Santa Barbara, one of the Getty Museums, or spend a day at the beach or local mountains hiking. DisneyLand a crowd favorite is about 90 minutes south!
Local Activities If you’re interested in non-henna activities
Camarillo Premium Outlets are great for a shopping spree
Malibu is about 30 minutes south along the coast (see some movie stars?)
Santa Barbara is about 50 minutes north along the coast.
Hollywood is 40 minutes south on the 101 freeway. Beaches are about 15 minutes and we have lots to choose from. Head north on the 101 to Oxnard, Port Hueneme or Ventura Beaches or head South on the famous Pacific Coast towards Pt Mugu, Zuma, Malibu and Santa Monica.
Paramount Ranch Yup, THE Paramount! This is where many old television and western shows were filmed. It’s part of the State Parks and open to hikes, tourists and looky loos. Located in Agoura, 20 minutes south of Newbury Park.
Looking for an inexpensive, outdoor nature based day trip? South on the PCH for about 15 minutes and check out Sycamore Park for a hike in native California foothills and be rewarded with canyon views and vistas of the pacific ocean.
Next you’ll be hungry! Head south another 10 minutes or so to Neptunes Net and get fish tacos or fish and chips and a cold one at this famous beach shack overlooking the Pacific Coast Highway and Ocean. It’s a popular hang out for Hollywood and Bikers so the scene is always interesting!
