Strawberry Fields Forever, Almost, Near Oxnard, California

City of Oxnard, California
Official city website

"...Whether you are visiting briefly, attending a convention, or reside here, there are many things to do, see and enjoy. Our history mirrors that of many other cities in this wonderful State of California, but we have our own unique features.

"In the years since incorporation in 1903, Oxnard has gone from cattle grazing, to sugar beets and beans, to orchards, to more intensive farming with several crops grown in a single year, to servicing the defense industry, and finally to diversified industrial, housing, and commercial development...."

All that, and more: There's the Strawberry Festivalin Oxnard. Which is hardly surprising, since a whole lot of strawberries are grown in Oxnard Plain. Which is why Oxnard has dubbed itself "strawberry capital of the world.
