  • 1. Bike the Beach

    We rented bikes at the Marriot for $8 an hour (quite the deal!) and rode the bike trail as far as it would take us (about 5 miles). Take a break at "surfer's point" and watch the many surfers try to catch a wave.

  • 2. Sidecar Restaurant
    The SideCar Restaurant, Ventura, California

    Tuesday night is "jazz and grilled cheese night". The tunes and food were pretty good, but the atmoshpere and friendly staff was what made this stop worth while.

  • 3. Downtown Ventura

    Some cute shops, tons of thrift and antique stores and the Mission is right on Main St. China Alley was nice with the fountains and tea garden (right across from the Mission). We had lunch at Zoey's...the place was cute and the prices reasonable but the food left alot to be desired.

  • 4. Day Trip to LA

    We took a nice, traffic filled drive to a friend's house in Venice Beach. Seeing how we have already been there, we rode bikes all the way to Manhattan Beach on a nice bike path mostly along the ocean. Round trip the ride was about 20 miles but pretty much flat the whole way - and it was probably much faster than trying to drive there! Had lunch at the Rockfish - delicious food, great atmosphere, and friendly staff. Highly recc. for lunch.
