Experience Classic California

Ventura County Coast is the southern gateway to the Central Coast and the iconic Pacific Coast Highway drive. Our quintessentially Californian towns are easily accessible off Highway 101 (between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara) and offer plenty of outdoor adventures, family fun, and culinary bounty to warrant a road trip stop.

Take a Beach Break

Ease off the excitement of the Big Game by chilling out and decompressing at the beach for a few days. Ventura County Coast is home to 22 miles of stunning beaches, including many that are blissfully uncrowded. Enjoy waterfront strolls and epic sunsets along the Ventura Pier and the Ventura and Channel Islands Harbors. Go paddle boarding or kayaking, or take a surf lesson at one of the mellower breaks well-suited to beginners.

Given our deep agricultural roots—the region is filled with farms that supply some of Southern California’s top chefs—and abundance of homegrown breweries and wineries, the Ventura County Coast is a delicious dining and drinking destination. So, whether you’re cruising up to a bar for a bite and the half-time show, want takeout to watch the game at your hotel or simply desire to dine well while visiting, your taste buds will feel all kinds of winning energy.
