A girls’ weekend filled with the fun things you want to do but never have time. It’s an easy drive from L.A. or the Central Coast, but far enough away to have that lux vacation feel.
Start your adventures in Camarillo with a morning shopping spree at the Premium Outlets, where designer brand deals abound in 160 stores. (Here’s an insider tip: Get the VIP discount card by linking to their site!) You and your girlfriends will find impressive savings at Barneys New York, Coach, Giorgio Armani, Kenneth Cole, Nike, Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Tommy Hilfiger and more. (If you need more than a day to check out the stores, there are plenty of hotels and inns adjacent to the outlets!)
When you’re ready for some down time, head over to the Four Points by Sheraton located next to the Ventura Harbor Village for a massage at its new spa by Diane Loring. Or, go on a relaxing stroll through the Ventura Harbor and watch the boats come in while treating yourselves to an ice cream. (Secret – they have Pineapple Dole Whip!)
For dinner, head to downtown Ventura for fine dining at hot spot Café Fiore or local favorite RICE by Mama. If you have time, stroll around Ventura’s bustling main street for some window-shopping, coffee or a glass of wine.
If you’re traveling in July, top off the busy day by taking your friends to one of Ventura County’s signature annual events, the Ventura Music Festival, which brings world-class performers to the area each year. Don’t wait too long for tickets because performances sell out quickly!
No ladies’ weekend is complete without an incredible Sunday brunch. Try the Waterside Restaurant and Wine Bar in Oxnard right at the harbor. Or the 4-star La Dolce Vita Ristorante in Oxnard’s Heritage Square, a historic cultural landmark with 15 restored homes that tell the history of Oxnard.
Want some adventure? Check out the newest group fun at the River Ridge Country Club called Footgolf. Anyone can play…kick a ball into the hole after zooming around on your own golf cart.
Before you leave River Ridge, enjoy a glass of wine paired with an incredible cheese plate at the Tasting Room overlooking the golf course. We recommend checking out the event list before you come – if you time it right, you can enjoy Corks-n-Comedy, Hawaiian Luau, BBQ & Wine and more.
