Lots of very nice shops and not too expensive. Be prepared for crowds at the restaurants as it gets later on Fridays and Saturdays. Great seafood and the beaches nearby are beautiful!

Pleasant, busy and good places to eat, drink or shop. Worth the time to visit. We walked from Main Street the first time and took car the second. Plenty of parking available.

We visited while the Lady Washington was in harbor. It is so pretty! It sailed out while we watched! The shops are average and not too many of them. The area is nice and we ate at one of the several spots. It is a pleasant place to kill some time.

We walked all around the Harbor Village just before Christmas and found some really different things to give. We bought a kite for our Daughters family to enjoy at the beach that was very colorful and fun.

Love going to Brophy Bros at the Harbor! Some of the best clam chowder and oyster shots ever! Whenever I visit my family in the area, I have to stop for some!

We had a lovely time walking around the village, picked a great cafe for lunch and walked on the beach. There's also spots to book tours to the channel islands and lot of cute boutiques and shops. Definitely recommend this as a pit stop if you're in the area...

Hidden behind the Four Points Sheraton and Holiday Inn on Harbor Blvd. heading south out of Ventura, follow the signs to Spinnaker Drive to find a parking area and a group of shops and restaurants encircling the harbor on the spit that separates the harbor from the ocean. Sailboats and fishing boats fill the harbor along with Island Packers boat... More

We walked over from our hotel hoping to enjoy some time shopping and seeing the harbor from the orther side. The place looks all but abandonded. Very sad. Looks like it could have been nice in the day. The smell (not your usual harbor smells) was overpowering. The place needs a good cleaning and some marketing to bring in some... More

Good place to stroll through to take in unusual shops and places to eat. Great views and lots to do, including very close to the Channel Islands National Park Center. Don't miss the Village Hat store and the wonderful carousel that still delights children. Great place to be on a warm summer day.

Right across from the ocean, the Ventura Harbor Village has Italian, Japanese, Greek, Mexican, French, grilled cheese, and of course seafood restaurants. The shops range from a hat store, local artists galleries, and swim suit store to an ice cream parlor that is just yummy for the entire family!
