Ventura's distinct neighborhoods each reflect an era, culture or architectural style that is evocative of California's past. Whether it is real history as seen in downtown where two hundred year old buildings house haute boutiques, or the burgeoning Westside, where hundreds of artists have set up studios in warehouses once used by the oil industry.
Ventura Harbor Village is the heart of coastal Ventura County. Here you can book a cruise for a half- or full-day trip to the Channel Islands, sail, kayak , rent a peddle boat or simply enjoy a few hours by the sea.
The oceanfront and exquisite beaches are the shining jewels in Ventura's crown.
