My wife and I have long considered moving to SoCal and I now have a few job opportunities at a few colleges/universities. Without getting too specific, on the southern and northwest edges of the city. Would it even be feasible to live in Oxnard/Ventura and commute to say, Santa Monica or Northridge? How about commuting to Irvine or Mission Viejo from Oceanside? Any help is greatly appreciated. You always hear about the nightmare commute times in LA. Just wondering how it might compare to driving the same distance in cities like ATL or DC? Thanks a bunch.
