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.
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.
You don't want to look old before your time do you? Spend some time indoors to avoid sunburned wrinkles. Century movie house is a great place to catch movies in Downtown Ventura. This movie theatre has an almost indie vibe. The true Ventura spirit. They have all the latest releases and some independent movies as wel.
