The Ultimate Guys’ Getaway Food & Drink

With everything from kart racing from comedy night, this active itinerary is a guys’ dream weekend in Ventura County Coast.

DAY ONE

When the work day is done, drive to Ventura County Coast and start the weekend right with margaritas and Mexican food at Margarita Village.

Follow dinner with a night of laughs at the Ventura Harbor Comedy Club. The restaurant and club are a short walk from one another in the Ventura Harbor.

DAY TWO

The options are endless for a day in the great outdoors. Check out sports fishing, kayak and wave runner rentals or sign up for an excursion to the Channel Islands with Island Packers.

If you’re an avid surfer, Ventura County Coast has some of the best surf with the fewest crowds.
In the evening, indulge in an exotic eating experience at Moqueca Brazilian Cuisine overlooking the Channel Island Harbor in Oxnard.

Of course, the trip won’t be complete without checking out the numerous craft breweries in Ventura County Coast. Some favorites include Institution Ale in Camarillo and MadeWest in Ventura.

DAY THREE

A hearty breakfast is in store at Pete’s Breakfast House Restaurant on Main Street in Ventura, known for its buttermilk pancakes and homemade strawberry jam.

Next is a round of golf at one of the area’s championship public golf courses. Or sign up for a class at Jim Hall Kart Racing in Oxnard where students learn to drive ultra-condensed, 160-pound formula karts that are known to pull up to 1.4 G’s around the track corners.

It may be time to head home, but stop at the Commemorative Air Force Museum in Camarillo on your way. This museum features vintage aircraft and an extensive collection of World War II memorabilia. Volunteers are on hand to answer questions and conduct private tours. For the daredevils in the group, the museum even offers flights in its vintage warbirds!
