We love walking around the harbor. Great exercise, flat surfaces. Fun shops and great food. Fun time watching the ships and people.

Ventura Harbor was great for the family, the kids loved it. Great place to go kayaking, and boat ride. Were planning to go again and spend more time there.

Nice place to walk around and shop. We rented an electric boat from Ventura Harbor boat rentals and enjoyed boating around the harbor. Lunch at Brophy's was good, but their service was SLOW.

This place is great for a few hours with the family. We were just driving through and decided to stop and check it out. Lots of great little shops - ice cream, coffee, toys and trinkets. Also a perfect spot for any photographers out there.

We frequently visit Ventura Harbor Village mainly to feed our fish fix from Andria's then a look at what the Beach Break has to offer. Been doing it for at least 15 years and always enjoy it.

Ventura Harbor Village is a great place to take a stroll. The promenade probably is about a mile long if include the yacht club and hotel area. The beach is a short walk away too (one city block). There are lots of people walking their dogs and stopping to have a snack. There's a great privately owned ice cream place... More

Don't go to this restaurant. To high priced for the service and food. Had to put up with staff that seemed uncaring about the service they were providing their diners

Go during the week, lots of parking not too many people, Lately with our beautiful weather the outdoor dining is super! Bring your dog for a great walk along the shops, some you can even stop and have drinks or food and just enjoy the views.

The Ventura harbor is a great place to visit. They have a variety of places to eat, from Italian to Greek to Mexican to Seafood restaurants and they are all really good. They have the best little shops to purchase souvenirs and clothing and they even have a toy store and a hat shop as well. On holidays they always... More
