Wonderful service

The representative there was very helpful and friendly. The signage was a little obscured on the way to the center. Need to trim the trees back to make it clearer.

Though we didn't really need information about California, because our vacation was already endingt, we went to the Oxnard California Welcome Center to get some picture post cards. Very friendly and helpful staff, they gave us some hints for our next vacation in CA.

Great place to stop in and see, a wealth of information at your finger tips and locations to visit. They even have a wine tasting room of local wineries in Ventura and great merchandise. Located in a shopping center with great restaurants and shops.
