We love our Harbor! Our Facebook page is a place for our local community, as well as welcome tourists stopping through, to enjoy our views, to post and share what's happening at our Harbor: from a day on the beach, a beautiful sunset, whale spotting, bird and seal pictures, to restaurant, nightlife or new water excursions taking place at Ventura Harbor Village! Ventura Harbor Village is California’s seaside playground brimming with fresh seafood and a wide variety of cuisines to tantalize your palette, boutique shops and art galleries around every corner, SUP, kayak, pedal and electric boat rentals to get on the water and see the seals, family fun at the arcade, kite flying, or playing in the sand at one of the safest beaches in the County “Mother’s Beach” (Harbor Cove Beach), daily boat trips, as well as sailing and dive charters to explore the Channel Islands National Park, coastal fashion and décor, a beautiful walking promenade with daily Happy Hours overlooking the boats, and a comedy club boasting top celebrity names to put a smile on your face. Now you can see why we Love our Harbor!

A Harbor where tourists and local all blend into one big family. Everyone is happy. Everyone see something they like. Everyone eats something they like. How can you beat that. Plus free easy parking.

Nice place to spend a couple of hours browsing in the shops and then stopping for a beer, coffee, ice cream or a meal. We LOVE the Boat Yard Pub - great beer selection, lots of menu choices - great food!

I would especially rate Island Packers trip to the National Parks a must do. Local National park service is a good overview. Pretty much something for everyone. Brophy's restaurant, Andrias, Comedy club are some of my favorites.
