Love Channel Islands Harbor. The shops are wonderful - a couple of the restaurants are pretty good also. Walking around the area is very relaxing and you can make a very nice day of it. Across the street is a state beach that I have gone to numerous times. One side has waves and one side is in a harbor... More

This area is great because you can park your car and walk along the harbor to restaurants museums. Festivals are often held here. Good place ride your bike, walk your dog or just enjoy the views.

I walked along the harbor in the evening and it was very nice. The view of the boats is amazing and there are various restaurants along it that offer a view of it. It is definitely worth the visit.

It's about 7:30pm and its peaceful and quiet. Some people are out getting their exercise and some are out to enjoy the night with their children. The homes next door are beautiful. There's quite a few eateries around the area with a few activities to enjoy like kayaking. I'm glad I stopped by to have some Korean food and walked... More

If you're going to be in this area on a Sunday check out the market - open till 3pm. It's not a massive market but some nice fruit / veg and other interesting sellers - clothes, plants, candles etc. This is right by the big marina and there's plenty of parking. It's a nice clean and relaxing place to visit.... More
