    Why the beach of course.

    by tvdandy Written Oct 5, 2007

    Well, after all, this is a beachtown. The beaches are clean with less seaweed then Santa Barbara.
    Their is also a pier for fishing. I believe the main thing here is the surfing, there are some good breaks here and everybody and their mama had a board. The sands are nice and wide. The only thing I did not like is that the sun did not set in the ocean, this is a hit or miss on the Central Coast.

    Exploring Downtown Ventura

    by Tom_Fields Written Nov 9, 2007

    Ventura's downtown is very picturesque, with some pretty streets, a few museums, and nice squares. Check out Figueroa Square--directly in front of the Mission. It has a fountain, a couple murals, and provides some quiet space.

    Downtown's Main Street is lined with shops, restaurants, and attractions. I arrived too late for the Museum of Art and History or the Archeological Museum, but they're nearby.
