Ventura Inspiration Guide 2018 - 5
2018 INSPIRATION GUIDE
alifornia's legendary Highway 1, one of the world's most
famed scenic roads, travels through Ventura. You can
drive right past it - or even right through it - but when
you stop here, you'll know you've arrived at a special place.
Midway between Malibu and Santa Barbara, Ventura remains
refreshingly unspoiled and unpolished. While many California
visitors spend time in its famous big cities and merely buy
postcards of laid-back California beach towns, I'm encouraging
you to dig a little deeper. A quaint Main Street in a historic
downtown, a barefoot surfer vibe, a wooden pier, beachside
tacos, and views of Channel Islands National Park are what
you'll find. A welcoming community, named one of National
Geographic's 25 happiest cities in America, is what you'll feel. So
stay longer, walk farther, and fit right in - not because you try,
but rather because you don't have to try in the first place.
Welcome to Ventura!
