Beach city with great views of the beach with big hills inshore. You can see Channel Islands. The pier is a great place to enjoy, along with the Promenade. 2 good restaurants, 1 upscale. Nearby, on Thompson Blvd is the best pizza around, looks like a shack. Ventura County Fairgrounds is half a mile to the North. Great Bicycling, you could spend the day biking. Get a friend to drop you and your bike off in Ojai, Oak view, or Casitas- you can coast your bike all the way to the beach and the pier. Good way to spend the day. When driving, BE CAREFUL of camera ticket lights at various locations such as Thompson Blvd and Seaward Ave. Tickets are $580.00. If you are behind a truck or slow car and making a left- your done! This takes away from the ambience. City needs the income. Other than that, this progressive city has much to offer. Restaurants, leisure, and fun- bring the bike.
