Who best to give you travel tips than the people who live and breathe Ventura for a living? Here are some of our favorite things to do around this beautiful town we call home. On a great day we even get to call them ‘work’!
Grab a World Famous Fish Taco from Spencer Mackenzie’s for lunch, then walk across the bridge for a leisurely stroll along the beach.
Wait for low tide, then hunt for sea glass along the coastline. The beach is filled with beautiful treasures!
Vice President, Sales & Marketing
Pack your favorite bottle of wine and a baguette, then head to The Jolly Oyster. Have a picnic on the beach and give oyster shucking a try.
When the first sign of daylight peeks, head to the beach for a sunrise walk. (You’ll find me there with my dog, Snickers.)
President & CEO
Check out the Harbor Wetlands Ecological Reserve; end at Brophy Brothers for steamed mussels.
Head to City Hall; from here, it’s a short hike with panoramic coastal views through Ventura Botanical Gardens Trail.
Visitor Services & Leisure Trade Manager
Relax with an ice-cold beer from MadeWest Brewing Co. and grab a snack from their food truck of the day.
