Ventura Inspiration Guide 2018 - 30
A DOG'S DAY
Written by Martha-Page Althaus
It's hard to leave pets behind while on vacation, but in Ventura, you don't have to. Ventura
has tons of pet-friendly restaurants, breweries, beaches, and hotels. Just ask Miles Jacob,
a four-year-old Siberian Husky from L.A., who recently spent an afternoon exploring the
area. Miles, along with mom Monica, travels the L.A. area to raise awareness and funds
for local shelters. Follow along with his adventures on Instagram (@iheartmiles), and if
you see him around town, give him a good scratch behind the ears.
Here, Miles gives his recommendations for a pup's perfect Ventura day.
3 PM: VENTURA VISITOR CENTER
We headed downtown to meet the
friendly humans at Ventura Visitor Center.
They gave me some swag. Thanks, guys!
Then we strolled downtown a bit. Just
about every shop and restaurant we
passed had a water bowl outside.
12 PM: LUNCH AT RHUMB LINE
We sat outside by the water and had a
great view. Everyone there was so nice and
the service was wonderful. My mom loved
the dessert tray, and I had a nice mixedgreen salad for lunch. I don't get human
food often, so today was a special treat!

1 PM: ARROYO VERDE PARK
After lunch we went to the best dog park
ever. It was tucked away and far from
the street, so my mom felt comfortable
keeping me off the leash. (What can I
say? I'm a runner.) The park was huge and
there were other dogs to play with. Then
we hiked up the trail a bit. But I was tired
from running the park, so we didn't make
it very far. I hear the views from the top
are beautiful. Next time!
