Lots of restaurants and things to eat
May 2021 • Friends
But quantity does not equal quality. The three places that we visited over two days were ok. Nothing special. It is nice if you are staying at the Four Points Hotel since it is close.

Excellent Village and Beach
Oct 2020
My wife and I hadn't been here in ... 10 years or more. At that time, we were just here on the spur of the moment, and came across a Dog Obedience Exhibit, which was very interesting. We had always enjoyed our visits here.
This time, we planned to just come out and relax, tired of the COVID homebound, and just wanted to go out and relax on a Saturday.
We were not disappointed. We arrived here a bit before 11 am, wandered around at some of the shops and thoroughly enjoyed our walk.
Then we stopped at Andrieas, with Brophy right across the parking lot. There wasn't any particular reason to pick one over the other, though we had eaten at both places on our past visits. Both restaurants had a long line around 11:30; it took us about 15 minutes standing outside (safe distancing!) waiting to give our order, and another 15-20 minutes before our "take-out" delivery package was ready. I had grabbed a table while my wife waited for our food to come. Food was very good.
After lunch, we walked to the beach, changed our footwear for something more suitable for sand and water, climbed a slight slope and then down to the beach.
We just relaxed and walked right by the water's edge, dodging waves now and then, and just picking up little pebbles here and there.
After about an hour, we decided to slowly walk back to the Village, and just leisurely walked and relaxed, looked out the harbor at various boats and yachts, before heading to the parking lot near by and went home.
The crowd wasn't overly too bad, though there were enough tourists wandering thru the Harbor, as well as waiting in line at many restaurants. We noticed that there were quite a few dogs walking with their owners, and it also seemed that many of the restaurants we happen to look into, allowed pets.
All in all, enjoyable day.

COVID-19 isn't stopping anyone
Jun 2020
We rode our bicycles from our hotel to this location so we could eat lunch at a restaurant we wanted to try out. It was a Saturday and despite the COVID-19 pandemic everyone else had the same idea as we had. The place was very busy and the restaurants were jam packed with the one we wanted to eat at having the waitlist closed. We jumped back on the bicycles and headed to Main Street to dine there instead. The city needs to add bike rack locking areas and more benches for people to sit down and relax.

Wonderful Spot to Spend the Day
May 2019
We spent a memorable day at the picturesque harbor - so much to do in a small, walk-able area! We visited the Robert J. Lagomarsino Visitor Center, took a wildlife watching cruise with Island Packers, had lunch at Brophy Brothers and browsed some shops. We were there during the day, but I also saw advertisements for a comedy club and an escape room. For the water-lovers, watercraft rentals are available and Harbor Cove Beach is just across the parking lots. We saw pelicans, sea lions and a great blue heron right in the harbor. Parking is free and most of the attractions are pet-friendly. It does fill up on nice days so arrive early.

This was really for boaters

We couldn’t really find a village or easy place to walk around. Parking was hectic. We did take a tour with the Island Packers.

Top This Chocolate-Must Stop!!
Dec 2019
Ventura Harbor is a great place for a leisurely walk and shopping. Top This Chocolate made it totally worth the visit. The concept is wonderful.....pick your favorite type of chocolate (milk, dark, or white) and then add whatever ingredients you want....nuts, candy, cookies, gummy bears, sprinkles, potato chips, goldfish, etc. Their chocologists then make it into a chocolate bar or you can have a liquid chocolate cup. DELICIOUS!
They also have prepared chocolates for purchase. Do not miss this place!!

Hidden Gem beach nearby, very classic harbor, romantic in evenings
Dec 2019
The Ventura Harbor is an excellent place to visit especially for a evening stroll in the spring or fall. The ocean air is amazing. It’s great for families and couples and artists. There are plenty of options for meals. Views from restaurants are amazing. The seafood restaurants are a good choice. It’s fun the see the fishermen get ready to get out to sea. Great coffee shop. Take a harbor boat tour ( the guide is a little grumpy). There are seals in the harbor. The channel island national park visitor center is nice. Lastly, the beach nearby is Ventura’s best kept secret. you’ll be the only person on a vast very long (miles) gorgeous beach with great views of the city and islands. Overall the harbor is great. If you are an artist or photographer, this is a great place for subjects, especially on an evening post sunny or clear day.

Took a trip for lunch and did a touristy walk around. Awesome ocean views on one side, and a commercial area on the other.
