“Sunshine, blue skies, ocean waves, an atmosphere of freedom”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

So much to see...pelicans diving for fish and an abundance of other ocean birds, surfers, scenic views of the ocean and the pier, activity everywhere and yet relaxing too - not many places can fit that requirement. And it's a great place to go if you have a dog too - everyone is doing some activity with their furbabies!

“Always make a point of walking the promenade”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Of course there are some "interesting" characters, but where else can you see amazing surfers of all kinds - especially impressed by the kit surfers who sail for hours on the waves. I actually saw a dolphin racing a wave alongside a surfer once. It's a nice long walk, and the pier is impressive. Breathe in the sea air!

“Beautiful day in Ventura”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Its so pretty along the promenade and take a walk out on the pier and enjoy the view of ocean, hills and the Ventura coast line. Have a drink or eat at Eric's on the Pier or Aloha Restaurant along the Promenade.
