Great place to look at all the nice boats. Lots of neat little gift shops and plenty of restaurants to choose from. They have boat rentals, kayak rentals, harbor cruises. Lots to do for the whole family.

This is our go to place for an uncrowded beach get away. The Village is small & well maintained with lots of dining choices as well as an arcade & some shops. The ice cream shop has Dole Whip, usually only found at Disneyland.

Ventura locals recommended Ventura Harbor Village. Visited on a weekday so it was quiet and enjoyable. Understand much busier on weekends and evenings.

With a little walking and looking around, all sorts of interesting things to discover here. On the water, watch the working fishing fleet stock up and head out, then return and offload their catch, often selling right off the docks. Lots of pleasure boats to...More
