Spent a few weeks here. Really liked it! Very nice pier! If your going down there after dark it would be a good idea if a couple of you are "Goon" sized and types as there is a little too much punk gang activity in this area at night!

Great place to take a long walk, breathe in the fresh air and enjoy panoramic scenery. Been here many times and will be back many times more. Not crowded and a world away from the hectic hustle bustle of Los angels. Highly recommended to see if in the area. Do not miss the Ventura Pier!

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.
