  • This is a place with a real small village seaside feel. Most of it are restaurants and beach shops with an arcade. The boats are fun to look at and the beach is literally across the street. It's a great place to kill some time with the family. I recommend that you try Andrea's Seafood restaurant here. It's mid-priced, but the food is always very fresh. The Greek Restaurant is really fun too with decent food. Make sure to hit it up in the evenings if you want to catch the belly dancers.
  • Fun, family place to visit. My kids loved the carousel and the arcade. We got ice cream cones at Coastal Cone. There are lots of fun shops and restaurants. This definitely warrants several visits to experience all the fun offerings.
  • Love walking around the harbor. Great ice cream shop. Check out the cool sock store too: glow in the dark socks, too cool!
  • Ventura harbor is always a great place to come any day of the week. Nice restaurants​ and shopping. Looking forward to returning soon.
  • The waves are very small and safe for young children. Fun to watch boats come in and out from a distance.
