    Summertime Fun: The Ventura County Fair

    Ferris Wheel at Seaside Park

    Every August the Ventura County Fair at the Fairgrounds in Ventura is California’s Coolest Fair and the only Fair on the West Coast located directly on the beach, where ocean breezes keep it cool.

    There are carnival rides to take your breath away and the midway where you can try your luck and win a oversized stuffed animal. Eat your way through the fair: Corn on the Cob, Hot dogs, Wurst, Cinnamon rolls, fudge, cotton candy, curly fries or Australian battered potatoes are to name a few.

    Shop 'til you drop at the exhibition hall, you can buy jewelry, hot tubs, garden items, car wax or grandfather clocks, what ever you choose it will be a lot of fun.

    If shopping is not your bag take in the garden exhibits, or tour the photography and home arts exhibits.

    Admission to the Ventura County Fair cost $10 for adults,
    $6 for kids and seniors.

    Island Packers- Whale Watching

    The family took the all day Whale Watching tour with Island Packers in July 2011, out of Ventura Harbor. The tour did not disappoint, dolphins as far as you can see~ 9 blue whales and 17 humpback whales! Wow!!. Watch out if you are prone to sea-sickness, the waters are rough heading out to find the whales...I was quite sick, even with dramamine. However, after the bulk of the whale watching is over, you cruise in calm waters close to Santa Cruz Island, and inside the painted cave.

    The boat offers snacks and drinks, with a seating area inside the boat.

    Don't forget your jacket! It can get chilly!!

    Call ahead of time to book your reservations!

    This collection of tourist shops, restaurants and night clubs is a good way to spend a few hours. It's basically a big tourist trap but provides a central location for numeous restaurants. Also on the island is the Channel Islands National Park Visitor's center.

    Shopping in a cool ocean breeze

    Harbor Village is a cool shopping/dining experience overlooking the Ventura Harbor. There are also some very cool artwork displayed all over the place. This is an up and comer, its seems like it is still light in foot traffic. But it is still very appealing. Unique shopping/dining experience.
