With endless summers, it’s always picnic time!

by Elizabeth Silva

One the best perks of living in Ventura, is its awesome picnic spots. Picnics are great for bonding time with family, friends, and significant others. They have a way of bringing people together outdoors, surrounded by the natural beauty of nature, all enjoying a good time and good food. These are a few of the best picnic places in Ventura:

Marina Park

It is a very place to have a picnic since it is by the ocean. If you want to go to a picnic without sacrificing your wish to go to the beach then this is your optimal choice. You get to eat, happily wait to digest the food and then go have fun in the waves. There is a playground and a zip line for the kids and barbecue grills for the whole family.
