Enjoy a day watching the boats come and go in a beautiful harbor. Plenty of shopping and restaurants.

A destination it is not. The place feels unkempt and run down and maybe not as clean as it could be. The stores are expensive, though that is hardly surprising for such a tourist trap. If you have a boat then coming here makes more sense.

I went Memorial weekend with two grandchildren both under 5 years old and had a great time looking at the boats, riding the carasoul, watching dolfins in the harbour and had a fantastic lunch at the Greek restaurant. We live in the area and go often but don't take advantage of this little gem on the water often enough! There... More

From our hotel we took a lovely evening stroll around the Harbor Village. Although we did not eat here, it looked busy and friendly. An excellent choice for a pre/post dinner amble!

We had family visiting and couldn't decide where to go. We headed to Ventura and found the village. It was so much fun for children and adults.

Want a quick getaway from LA! This is it. A fun place to play, explore and dine. Watch the boats and listen to the water lap against the side of the harbor. See the Seafarers memorial and just enjoy your day. Relax in the sun, then go eat at Andria's, yummy!

I like walking my dog here and then getting a bite. The food in most of the places is only okay. Andrea's is probably the best one. One of the restaurants need to go a little more gourmet instead of average grill food. I have kayaked here a few times too; it's cool nothing too exciting but worth it to... More

Ventura Harbor Comedy Club is a great night out, whether it's the weekend or the weekday. Great prices, with free tickets to other shows at the end of the show you went to. Very friendly staff.
