Trust and honesty matter, in any forum. And Visit Ventura holds to that when it comes to tourism and the information we put out. We will tell you the truth.
So no, our skies of late have not been the blue that we’re used to. And while impossibly brave firefighters in so many states work, well, impossibly hard to put out so many fires, your best way of tracking the air conditions here in Ventura are straightforward and simple.
You can call us at the Visitors Center (805-641-1400)
You can check on the Surfline Surfcam on top of the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach, which gives as good a view as any of the conditions along Ventura’s beachfront Promenade (and, not coincidentally, gives you a good look at the surf).
You can get a look at the other end of the beach (and the Ventura Harbor entrance) here.
You can check on any number of cams out at the Channel Islands.
AirNow, sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency and their partners, gives you the (almost) current air quality at the moment. Just type in the zip code. In Ventura’s case, 93003 and 93001 will work.
And here’s another truth.
Better times are coming.
And in any time, we want to help you travel safely and responsibly.
It’s the right thing to do. For all of us.
Shopping, dining, hiking, beach-going, beer-quaffing, wine-tasting, and all manner of fun in the sun (because that’s what Ventura does best). Want to know (almost) everything about Ventura? Please order our FREE Ventura Inspiration Guide here.
