Neighbor to the scenic Channel Islands, Channel Islands Harbor is a working harbor that offers fun-filled water activities for the whole family. About an hour's drive north from Los Angeles, the Harbor features several beach-lined parks and coastline for picnics and surfing, as well as nearby biking and walking paths. While at the Harbor, visit our many shops and dine at one of several restaurants with menus ranging from deli sandwiches to Brazilian cuisine. Be sure to check out the Channel Islands Maritime Museum with its ever-changing exhibitions, world-class maritime art, and ship models.

Fabulous place to walk around, look at the views, boats & houses. The landscaping is beautifully kept with all sorts of exotic succulents & flowers. Great on a Sunday as the Farmer's market is there. We are lucky to have this place on our doorstep.

Oxnard is a nice coastal city. The beach is beautiful. Great sand to ride a buggy or any other RV. The harbor features a good restaurant.

Got there around 11:30am and walked the booths. Sampled some of the sweetest strawberries and oranges. Sampled and bought some excellent Sriracha beef jerky from Topangas Finest Jerky. Ate some of the best tamales that I have ever had. Overall a very fun morning!

A relaxing stroll around the harbor is just the thing on a sunny day. The restaurants are just fine. The merry-go-round is great for the kids. The views of the harbor are stunning on a clear day. The shops are the best Soso
