The Ventura Harbor is a great place for strolling around with kids and dogs and just everyone. The arcade is rather scuzzy, but fun for the kids. All kinds of dogs (on leashes... read more

Nice pier to stop and take a walk. Pier boards are rough so wear shoes. Lots of people fishing so that was exciting to see. Lots of bird poop on railings so don't let kids hang on them,. Beach was quiet and clean. Pretty place to visit.

Just wished this promenade had more views of the ocean...and located closer to the beach...like near Santa Monica. That said, it still is pleasant to walk/bike and get great exercise! We used the promenade to walk from our hotel to local restaurants for dinner.

The Ventura Harbor is a great place for strolling around with kids and dogs and just everyone. The arcade is rather scuzzy, but fun for the kids. All kinds of dogs (on leashes), community booths set up and spectacular scenery. The only thing missing is a hot dog stand! Really, the only places to eat are pricey restaurants. The BBQ... More

I loved walking along the beautiful promenade, listening to the waves break, and watching the surfers. This wide expanse offered ample space for runners, strollers, bikers, dog walkers, and tourists. There are ample park benches with ocean views, narrow spits of beach at promenade level for sunbathing, wider beaches near the pier for water fun for the family, a small... More

I love the pier and promenade, and in particular, early Saturday morning runs while taking in the ocean, watching the surfers, families and tourists and in general appreciating that Ventura is an awesome place to live and visit. The only thing that keeps me from giving this 5 stars are safety concerns posed by a number of individuals and groups... More

My Family loves the pier and surrounding area! The pier is a great walk, a romantic stroll for some, a doggies fun walk, or a child wonder. All relatives and friends that visit come here with us! Great playground area. Yummy fish tacos. Fishermen fishing is fun to watch. Something for everyone!

This the best place to walk and eat and ride a bike. Ther are no other places that compare locally. The view is awesome. There are swings below pier area for kids and they are safe and well maintained. great lunch getaway!

What a great view walking out the pier at Ventura. Lots of people fishing along the pier and surfers and swimmers along the beach and in the water. There are interesting signs along the pier giving some history as well as information about marine animals. We really enjoyed our visit.
