5 goals you can set and accomplish by the sea

by Visit Ventura

Make the most of 2020 on the waterfront at Ventura Harbor Village; delicious restaurants, plenty of happy hours, laughs and fun activities are waiting for you. Check out the Channel Islands Visitors Center to book a trip with Island Packers to take your adventure even farther afield.

1. Laugh More

Laughter is the best medicine, so come out for a show at Ventura Harbor Comedy Club. From international names to hometown heroes, they consistently present some of the best in the business.

2. Challenge Yourself

Spin those wheels with puzzles, riddles and problem-solving at The Ultimate Escape Rooms. With a different theme in each room, there are plenty of fun ways to challenge your mind. When the door locks, you have 60 minutes to try to escape using elements of the room! Take a group of friends, your family or even your coworkers.

Will YOU make it out?

3. Sip and Savor

Take the time to enjoy a drink with stunning seaside views. Ventura Harbor has more than a dozen waterfront restaurant options and most have phenomenal weekday Happy Hours. Come by the Ventura Visitors Center to get a handout of Happy Hour offerings in the harbor — and downtown.
