ALL THE THINGS
YOU NEED TO KNOW
Ventura is 60 miles north of Los Angeles International
Airport (LAX) and Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR),
and about 35 miles south of Santa Barbara Airport (SBA).
Highway 101 runs through the city, so it's an easy drive
in both directions. Or, take the scenic route to town via
Highway 1 (also known as the Pacific Coast Highway).
Amtrak serves Ventura via the Pacific Surfliner route,
which connects San Luis Obispo to San Diego.
Ventura is best explored car-free. Hop on the Downtown
Harbor Trolley for free rides between downtown and
Ventura Harbor Village (venturatrolley.com). Prefer two
wheels? Ventura has many bike-friendly businesses.
