Ventura

One of the best kept Secrets on the California Coast!

One of the best kept Secrets on the California Coast!

The founding of Mission San Buenaventura in 1782 by Father Junipero Serra is the seed that bloomed into what is now the beautiful coastal city of Ventura.  Camino Real is the road that connects the 21 missions along California's stunning coastline, running through Ventura's downtown district - a reminder of its historic, humble beginnings.

Based around the mission named for Saint Bonaventure, Ventura was incorporated in 1866.  Soon we had a courthouse, public library, bank and other landmark buildings that set us on the path to growth and prosperity.  

Ventura is generally known as a beach town where residents can take full advantage of the laid-back California lifestyle.  The westside has a bohemian vibe and is the start of the Ventura River trail, a popular cycling and walking path.

Just south of downtown are the seaside areas of Pierpont/South Seaward and Ventura Harbor Village.  Midtown is a bit inland and is a hub of business activity, offering retail stores, a shopping mall and 2 hospitals  North of this is the College Area.  Head even farther inland to reach the family-friendly East End, boasting a more rural feel with the presence of fragrant citrus and avocado groves scattered throughout the quiet residential neighborhoods.
