Very Windy but Pretty

We walked on the beach trail and started to walk out on the pier however it was just too windy that day. It was pretty and you could see down the coast quite far. Nice view.

What a long, lovely pier. You feel as though you are out at sea! I liked the cut out of the floor at the end of the pier, so you could get a real sense of how rough or calm the waves were below.

The pier is conveniently located to acres of parking and near downtown Ventura. The views of the city are a plus too!

When you visit Ventura and walk on the scenic promenade, be sure an walk out on the pier. When you get to the end, turn around and look at one of California's great cities and shore line. The fish restaurant on the pier, Eric Erickenson's, is very good with great views as you dine.

Fabulous long pier from which you watch surfers in the distance and locals fishing off the end of the pier. Great little notices explaining the history of the pier as you walk down .

Relaxing place to sit and watch the enormous gulls and watch Pelicans finding their dinner. Nice child friendly parklands adjoining.

We spent several hour fishing from the pier - the repair work after last winter's storm was nicely done. Lots of families with small kids taking a walk to the end and back. Great views!
