    We stay here for three day weekends a lot...the two big dogs just love the 5 minute walk to the beach for the before-and-after the lifeguard shows up/leaves ball and frisbee throw! The motel is quiet and clean, safe and close to in and out and seaward fish and chips...yeah, Ventura has homeless people...every beach town in California has them! Just let them be and they don't bother you ...yes, the rooms are spartan...SHOW ME A MOTEL THAT IS CLEAN THIS CLOSE TO THE BEACH THAT HAS FREE MORNING COFFEE AND ALLOWS THE DOGS? OK, they don't heat the pool...ok, there is no little shampoos...IT IS THREE BLOCKS FROM THE BEACH! AND THE DOGS GET TO GO!

    Great place!

Channel Islands

by imatechgirl

We're coming to visit in July and I'd like to go out to Channel Islands. Can anyone report on which island we should visit? I've also noticed that there's a whale watching cruise but we're not sure if there are really that many whales in the area to make it worth it. Has anyone been out there in late July?

RE: Channel Islands

by squidly2

I was out there 17 July 2004. I was Scuba diving, vice hiking the islands. If you're just going out for a day, Anacapa makes the most sense given the time it takes to get out there. (2 hours round trip). There are some cool land formations on Anacapa. Island Packers is the only company that can take you out there.
I have rarely seen whales in July off of California. Maybe you can call and ask how often they see them. They are plentiful in the winter, I guess the more rare blue whale comes through around July..? To see one would be a treat, but I don't now about the probability that time of year.

RE: Channel Islands

by VdV

I've only been to Santa Cruz Islands in mid-November (the weather was absolutely gorgeous--80 degrees!) I think the former reply re: Anacapa is a safe bet. Don't know about whales, but if you like to kayak, Island Packers offers some packages with the boat ride, then kayaking around once you get to one of the islands. I did this on a full-day trip, brought some snorkel gear, and had a great time.

Also, check out VT member Minstrel74 (Sean)--he has some great pages on the Channel Islands.

Have a great time! (I grew up in that area, went to Channel Islands High School.)

Hi there, Island Packers Http://www.islandpackers.com this is a great resource, they offer trips to the Channel Islands both at Channel Islands and the Ventura Harbor.

By July the whale watching has long been over, however there is a large pod of dolphin to be seen out there. Remember this part of the coast can get quite chilly in the afternoon when the wind kicks in so dress in layers, bring plenty of water, sunglasses, your camera, sunscreen, a hat, trail mix or energy bars and what you pack in you must pack out.

Enjoy your time here in our coastal town, there is a lot to see and do.

Travel Tips for Ventura

CHINA TREASURE BOX

by LoriPori

For the Downtown Streetscape Project,artists were commissioned to transform traffic signal boxes along Main Street into artworks.
Artist Stefan Verstappen created his CHINA TREASURE BOX to pay homage to Ventura's rich multi cultural history. One of 5 painted utility boxes on Main Street, it sits on the corner of Figueroa Plaza just opposite China Alley.
Information courtesy of the website "City of Ventura Public Art Program" I was amazed at the rich colours the artist used to create his CHINA TREASURE BOX. I had no idea it was to cover up a signal box. What a marvelous idea!

FIGUEROA PLAZA MURAL

by LoriPori

As we strolled along Figueroa Plaza, we came upon this amazing MURAL. It was so wonderfully painted with vivid colors. The Mural depicted the era when Chinese immigrants, who came to the Ventura area to work in the fields and they lived together in wooden shacks. The Mural shows the Chinese going about their daily business

My Favorite Cowboy Hero's on one wall.....wow!

by Yaqui

As you know by now, I love murals. They to me, are so Americana. I just loved this one and it is on the wall of the Winchesters Restaurant at 632 E. Main Street.

There are a couple of more down by Figueroa Plaza, Figueroa and Santa Clara streets and, just off of Main Street across from the San Buenaventura Mission.

If you pay attention they are starting to pop up everywhere. In many of these wonderful historic cities in California. They represent a wonderful story of our past to enrich our future!

Coffee and Muffins

by keida84 about Full of Beans

In the funky little village of Pierpont Bay is an amazing collection of restaurants, services and a great coffee house called, "Full of Beans." Open 7 days a week the shop offers all sorts of coffee combinations even for the most dicriminating tastes. They also offer a wide assortment of non-coffee beverages as well.

The pastries, muffins and cakes are all great and you can even purchase bagels, small fruit salads among the vast displays of tempting treats.

There is seating inside and out with a stack of magazines and newspaper to help you while away the hours. I had the hot chocolate on a very cool summer's evening it was just the thing. Paul had a mocha latte and we shared a piece of their carrot cake for dessert.

They also have a unique package for people who require multiple coffees, for $12.00 you are given a vacuum pack full of coffee, 8 cups with lids and heat sleeves (so you won't burn your hand), creamer, sugar and stirrers. What a great idea!!!

China Alley

by Dabs

Right near the Peirano Grocery building is a Chinese gate marking the entrance to China Alley. There's really nothing to see down the alley, I suppose the gate serves as a historical reminder about the Chinese in Ventura.

The Chinese settled in Ventura in the 1860s working mostly as farmers, laborers and domestic help. Around 200 Chinese lived there until the 1920s in their own community, nothing of "Chinatown" exists there today. I'm not sure if the gate is original or a reproduction.

For an in depth look at the Chinese in California, take a look at this section of the National Park Service website.
