Most impressed with the Center - it is well organized and modern. The gentleman who talked with us was very helpful and spent a good deal of time explaining what Oxnard had to offer.

We stopped in here shortly after we moved to town. They had a lot of info available to take with us and the folks there were very friendly and helpful. I think they occasionally have wine tastings too.
