Visit Ventura Harbor California

Monday, October 28, 2019
When the Pacific Ocean sits at your doorstep, it’s hard not to go to the beach everyday and appreciate its beauty and grandeur.  A wonderful aspect of the California coast living is that it doesn't get too cold to enjoy the outdoors comfortably ALL year round!

We love Ventura for so many reasons.  It's not as busy nor pretentious as other nearby beaches like Malibu.  Amazing California coastline, nice restaurant and ice cream bar and beautiful Pier.  It's close enough to Santa Barbara or Los Angeles.  But mainly, it's the peacefulness of this area that we love the most.  Sure, it can get busy on weekends and especially over summer with the fair happening.

But overall, Ventura harbor is a down to earth beach town that's very casual and mellow. Makes our move so worth it and  content being here.  But don't tell too many people about this ocean side gem, because then the secret on this quiet, great little harbor will get out. 


Twirling myself this weekend,  Happy Monday Coastal lover! I am so excited the sun is out in So Cal and we are having fun relaxing day at the beach! I am almost in the home stretch now. I’m rocking my baby bump at 7 months pregnant! (30 weeks) My body has definitely changed, and I have gained 18 lbs during this pregnancy, but I am owning my curves and having fun just embracing it.


Yesterday we saw a number of small sailboats  coming in. Some were being towed in, as the winds were calm at that day. A few   fish fun jumping at the shore  (so cool and fun to watch) and some sea lion and dolphin. 



Oh Ventura! the sweet sea breeze, the green hills in the distance, a lovely little town with great shops and restaurants. Free parking in many areas. Overall, a great place to visit with family in all ages.

  4. I'm over here drooling over that beach (and the fact that you've only gained 18 pounds during your pregnancy). I would love, love, love to visit. I'm a beach lover and I love them all. My favorite, if I had to name one, is Grace Bay Beach in Turks and Caicos.
