The Pier is always a symbol of home for me. Take a walk over the ocean and get some fresh air or try your luck at fishing off The Pier! :D

This was a fun place to visit. I came here once without kids and once with kids and it was great either way. I recommend this spot.

The weather was excellent walking around the Ventura Harbor. Took some really pretty pictures and did a little shopping. Went back for the Pirate Days on the Harbor. There were many activities for families and especially children.

We enjoyed the pier as far as looking out at the ocean. It was very difficult to find a parking place and was very crowded. It could be because it was a holiday weekend.

The Ventura Pier is great with a lot of history in it. Plus there are shops and places to eat as well. A good place to stop and take a break from all the beach action

This is a great place to visit the beach. Parking is easy and the beach is good. Playground for kids, shops and good food are found there or a short walk off the beach.

Nice to see the ocean. Not much to do on pier. Only a couple stops. My first trip there. Traveled twenty minutes up the road on the 101 to Santa Barbara pier. A lot more to see and do. Never been there either. But it will be my new hang out when I want to get away.

Was just here for the first time a couple of weeks ago for a wedding and boy what a great city. Ventura and the Pier and Promenade have a wonderful vibe to them. I truly felt like I was in another time and place. So glad I got the chance to visit them. Great California feel!!!
