    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.

    Catch a flick at Century Theatre

    by tvdandy Written May 26, 2011

    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.
