Agua Dulce: Country Living, City Access

One of the many housing styles in Agua Dulce

Did you ever hear the term “We’re moving to the country!”? What does that mean? In this metropolitan gargantua known as the greater Los Angeles area, where can one go to get away from it all  for some peace and quiet?
