How to Spend 48 Hours in Ventura County (Without Kids)
Have some fun-in-the-sun in the coastal cities of Ventura, Oxnard and Port Hueneme, and the quaint and quiet town of Camarillo – just the two of you. You can start with a brewery crawl or a wine tasting tour, followed by a fresh seafood dinner. Book a jet ski experience around Channel Islands Harbor or just relax on a harbor dinner cruise. Value shopping is a favorite past-time here, with so many unique boutique shops, consignment stores and designer outlets. Or escape to the beach, just steps away from town.

A day trip to the Channel Islands National Park through Ventura Harbor is a must; save several hours for browsing and dining at the harbor village where one-of- kind boutique stores will satisfy mom and the vintage carousel, arcade and ice cream shop will entertain the kids. Or just book a room on the beach and watch the kids from your umbrella.
