Plan the Perfect Romantic Date Night

It’s All About Love – Ventura County Coast Style

Looking to sweep your special someone off their feet? Plan a romantic getaway with safe outdoor activities in our four welcoming cities. Here are ideas for the perfect, one-of-a-kind date in Camarillo, Oxnard, Ventura, and Port Hueneme.

Camarillo

Brunch is unbelievable at Waypoint Cafe, and not just because of the delightful food! It’s one of the few places you can watch planes land and take off while sipping mimosas on the heated outdoor patio. The cafe is famous for its Belgian waffles, brioche French toast, and all things egg. If you really want to get your sweetheart’s heart racing, sign up for a tandem jump at Skydive Coastal California. The center has expanded its safety protocols to stop the spread of COVID-19, including cleaning and face coverings.

Oxnard

Nothing says romance like riding in a Venetian gondola—except when you add a spectacular California sunset. Oxnard’s Gondola Paradiso offers professional cruises in the beautiful Channel Islands Harbor and canals around Coral Island. Continue your Mediterranean-inspired tour with dinner and drinks al fresco at La Dolce Vita 1901. Travel back in time with a Prohibition-era cocktail, such as an Old Fashioned, Sazerac, or Manhattans. Happy Hour is offered every day from 4 to 6 p.m., and dinner reservations are recommended.

Ventura

Take a trip around the world without leaving the Ventura Botanical Gardens. This 109-acre garden is home to plants from the five Mediterranean climate zones of the world, including parts of Chile, South Africa, Australia, the Mediterranean, and California. It also offers spectacular views of the California coastline and the Channel Islands. End the day with dinner and dessert at Le Petit Cafe & Bakery’s outdoor patio, where you can watch the sunset in Ventura Harbor.

Port Hueneme

Take advantage of Ventura County Coast’s awesome year-round weather with a picnic at Port Hueneme Beach Park. Just steps from the sand, Surfside Seafood offers a large assortment of fish, calamari, clams, and more for takeout. If you’re not in the mood for seafood, stop at Valerie’s Bakery on your way to the beach for authentic Mexican food and sweets.

Channel Islands

Outdoor-loving couples will find peace and a chance to connect with each other in nature on an escape to the Channel Islands National Park. Enjoy a sweet stroll together with views of the pristine blue ocean and picturesque wildlife. Try a new, underwater adventure with your sweetheart on a scuba diving excursion of the coast, where you’ll be surrounded by unique marine life and amazing kelp forests. Talk about an adventure you two will remember for a lifetime!
