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.

Had a great visit to Pismo Beach. Stopped for Pea Soup and Andersons, visited Wine Tasting Centers and Pismo Beach, where you can drive on the beach. What a great place to visit. I always visit the California Welcome Center and see what is new and goings on in our great State... California.

The people who volunteer/work here were so helpful and friendly - they took out a map to show us exactly where to go next, and discussed (it seemed) every possible next step with us, asking us more than the standard questions to make sure they were giving the correct information. It's in a strip mall, which seems odd at first,... More

The Welcome Center is located in The Collection. We stopped in there after a movie (Riverpark 16 is right there) on a whim. What a nice surprise to find all the items they have to offer: from maps and brochures of everything in Ventura County plus other counties to tshirts and magnets. They also have a wine tasting corner (!)... More

It was our first stop upon arrival in Oxnard. It's in part of a large strip mall though so you can easily wonder if you're going to the right place. You won't see it from the road, but you will see their signs with arrows pointing you in the right direction. What you will see is the restaurant: New York... More

You can buy your wow pass tickets to the Ventura County Fair every year. It allows you to go everyday and saves a lot of money. They also have cold water while you browse around the great events Oxnard has to offer. Also for sale are local jar preserves and other assorted crafts.
