Some of its largest employers include Amgen Biotechnology, Anthem Blue Cross, California Lutheran University and Sage Publications. Its Civic Arts Plaza theaters attracts top entertainers, and Wildwood Regional Park opens the door to unparalleled exploration of the outdoors as well as Chumash history. According to Niche.com, public education is stellar with schools rated #9 in the nation, and the FBI has consistently ranked it one of the safest U.S. cities with a population over 100,000.
