Living the Real California Life - Ventura Style

All along the coast of California, travelers find communities that each exhibit their own charm and ambiance.  Ventura is no exception and, in fact, is often cited as a stand alone experience that epitomizes the California of days gone by, while simultaneously providing amenities found in much more urban settings. 

Visitors to Ventura enjoy the abundant arts and cultural activities, outdoor adventures and the rich fusion of agricultural abundance and ocean side proximity that make it a chef's paradise. The Channel Islands National Park lies just off shore as does a National Marine Sanctuary. The Los Padres National Forest is found in Ventura's foothills while two of California's longest flowing open rivers help to form the city's boundaries. As the official tourism authority of Ventura, let us help you plan your stay in Ventura. In this site you will find information on hotels, things to dorestaurants, waterfront attractions at Ventura Harbor and our award-winning golf courses

Ventura is just an hour's drive from Los Angeles and Hollywood. Ventura is located along the scenic southern-most part of California's Central Coast. Year round daytime temperatures average 70 degrees F (21 degrees C) so it's no wonder early Spanish settlers dubbed Ventura the "land of endless summers". Come to Ventura and discover the Real California.
