The Ventura Visitors Center Celebrates the Holidays in a Big Way

by Visit Ventura

At the Ventura Visitors Center, the Holidays mean the world to us, and we always celebrate them in a Big Way. This year — starting right now — we’ll be offering 20% discounts in the weeks leading up to Christmas, on distinctive gifts you won’t find anywhere else. And discounted — or just every day affordable — the Ventura Visitors Center has dozens of unique holiday gifts; a wide selection of coastal-inspired items, including Ventura branded apparel (Patagonia vests, jackets and sweaters), accessories, jewelry, artwork, and lifestyle gifts. Lovingly laid out around the Christmas tree, there are gifts, small and large, that you won’t find anywhere else, from local artisans like Patagonia, Steve Cook paintings, Blue Ridge Honey, Naturally Wild, and Walden Surfboards. Yes, you can buy that surfboard in the window.

Annnnnd we’re giving away a FREE Ventura Serape with every $250 purchase through December 31st (in-store only). And we always have free Ventura stickers.  

Looking for gifts you don’t need to try on?

The Ventura Visitors Center Celebrates the Holidays in a Big Way Our Ventura water bottles, embossed with our eye-catching ambigram, are always popular gifts; big enough to keep you plenty hydrated, sleek enough to fit in your bag, and bright enough to stand out in the sand. Ventura sunglasses also make for great gifts for both men and women. And who doesn’t love a hearty ceramic mug? Our ceramic mugs are at the top of the Visitor Center’s best-seller list and they come in a variety of easy-on-the-eye colors. Another perennial best selling gift, our colorful, cozy serapes (Latin shawl or blanket) with ‘Ventura, California’ embroidered or sewn on patch options in white. And, happy coincidence, those serapes are discounted from November 18th through November 24th. So hustle in.  

Shop in a place that feels like home.

  Last but not least, when you shop at the Ventura Visitors Center you’ll be shopping in a store that feels like you’re home. Why? Our friendly volunteers. Yes, their local knowledge is extraordinary (some of their families go back four generations), and yes, they have smiles that light up the town. But most of all, they have an easy manner and they genuinely care about each and every customer. They’ll take the time to help you find exactly what you need.  

A final caring word.

  Yes, it’s the Holiday shopping season. But this season, it’s about something more. Supporting Local if you can — not just the Ventura Visitors Center Store, but all our Ventura stores. Most of Ventura’s stores are locally owned — our friends and neighbors — and all of them can use your kind help. So thank you for being big-hearted and Supporting Local.
