Visit Emma Wood State Beach on your trip to Ventura, California

Friday, November 30, 2018
Emma Wood State Beach is a linear state park that parallels Highway 101 west of the city of Ventura. Moderate temperatures help make Emma Wood State Beach popular for surf fishing, swimming (although the water is chilly), biking, beach combing, photography, whale watching and wildlife viewing.  It attracts a variety of wildlife including raccoons, songbirds and great blue herons.  Dolphins are occasionally seen just offshore.  The park also features the crumbling ruins of a World War II coastal artillery site.  The offshore Channel Islands can be seen from the beach.

Emma Wood State Beach offers family camping with fantastic views.  The campsite is for fully self-contained vehicles (RV) only.  Tents are not permitted.  No water, restrooms, electricity, fire rings, or phones or dump station are available.   You can make reservations from mid-May through Labor Day. After that it is first-come, first-serve. Keep in mind that high-tides may close the campground at any time.

I love being on the beach it’s my favorite place  – where the sky touches the sea.

Visit the San Buenaventura City Hall in California

Sunday, November 25, 2018
The beauty of Ventura, California is breathtaking when the history and its historical landmarks are combined with the cuteness of being a "laid-back" beach town. This is a premier building in downtown Ventura sits atop of California Street with its grandeur stature.  It overlooks the beautiful Pacific Ocean and one of the main strips of Downtown Ventura. The city offices are located inside, a statue of Father Junipero Serra stands at the front and botanical garden trails is directly behind the building.

If you're a traveler who normally doesn't visit City Hall, don't miss this one. The San Buenaventura City Hall building is definitely a piece of Ventura's overall appeal.
