Book Your Stay
If you’re going to be in Los Angeles for the Big Game on Feb. 13, extend your football-centric adventure with a stop along Ventura County Coast, which includes Camarillo, Oxnard, Ventura and Port Hueneme. We might be a collection of beach towns situated 60 miles north of SoFi Stadium, but our football credentials are pretty legit—We have previously hosted the Las Vegas Raiders, Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans Saints, and Miami Dolphins and are the current home for the Dallas Cowboys training camp, where the team gets ready for the regular season every summer. Read on to learn how you can get in on the NFL action and live your best sports fan life here, including finding a sweet spot to tune into the most watched broadcast event of the year.
Game-goers, if you’re strategic about timing your drive to or from SoFi Stadium, you can reach Ventura County Coast in as little as an hour’s time. Or take advantage of our convenient connectivity on Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner, which makes daily stops in Camarillo, Oxnard, and Ventura.

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. Linger for a few days and you can take in iconic Golden State experiences like visiting Channel Islands National Park and watching surfers ride waves at the world-famous Rincon surf break.
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.
