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.

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.

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

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.
