Relaxing Stroll and View

Love taking a walk on the pier, watching the surfers, and people fishing and just a good way to unwind after a long day

Quiet, peaceful, wonderful for families. Great food right on the pier and a playground on the beach.

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.

The Ventura Pier is very old, historic and has an amazing taco place that serves up a great breakfast burrito that you can sit and eat at their outdoor tables, or take a walk out to the end of the pier and enjoy it with the view. Off to the right is a point with lots of palm trees and... More

We walked the length of the promenade, stopping in here and there to look at the shops. There's a great hat shop, where you will find an amazing array of hats in all shapes, colors and sizes. They even have "dress up" hats for kids! We stopped at the Carousel, which was fun! There are also a variety of games... More

Nice place to go to the beach, walk on pier, fish, have a drink or just sit & people watch. Restaurant is a little expensive but decent.

With taco in hand it was a nice walk out onto the pier. It is nothing else but a nice walk out onto a pier for views. It does that and they do not charge you either. It is an easy walk from downtown and can easily be combined with a walk along the paved promenade too.
