After a long drive the beach is the place to relax. The Ventura Pier and Promenade are two places to do just that. Whether you want to stare out at the ocean and ponder life or people watch these two places are worth your time.

I visited the pier after 5 pm. People were starting to pack up and leave. It is fun to watch the sailboats as they come and go.

The pier is iconic to Ventura. The restaurants at the head have classic seafood; especially the fish tacos at the Beach House. It is a popular spot for fishing "off the pier" and for watching the surfers off Surfer's Point. Be sure to read the...More
