    This is a great place to visit in Ventura, especially in the evening! Excellent view of the sunset, the buildings below, and the sprawling beach. It can get a bit windy up there so be sure to bring a jacket but it's fantastic to eat food here and enjoy a sunset over the beach.

    This pocket park and botanical garden is hidden from all but the local folk. When I visited people were taking wedding photos, graduation photos and vista shots. Everyone was extremely friendly and the park had a great vibe. This is one of Ventura's gems.

    Fun short distance urban switch back hike with great views, native landscaping and benches for those who need a rest. Less then 2 mile round trip loop from city hall to cross. Longer trails higher on the hill to add miles if wanted.

    Easy local kid friendly hike. Good views of the islands on a clear day.
