What’s to do in Ventura?
The California coast is known for sun and sand – and Ventura is no different. If you’ve never been to Ventura, you’ve surely seen it in movies. This is the city where Swordfish, Chinatown, Little Miss Sunshine and Erin Brockovich were partly filmed. It’s a scenic city with some of the best surfing in the state and much, much more.
Taking a party bus to Ventura can offer lots of possibilities; take your group whale watching on a chartered boat, or spend the day seeing the sites at the harbor and oceanfront. There is a marine sanctuary, a national park, and plenty of other outdoor recreational spots to visit.
And, a number of beaches in Ventura offer sun worshippers everything from relaxing days in the sand to excellent surf, sport fishing, and water-based recreation. Some of the top locations are:
- Surfers Point Park
- Emma Woods State Beach
- San Buenaventura State Beach
- Mondos Beach
So grab the sunscreen and a good book or the longboard—Ventura is your playground.

Ventura is one of California’s most iconic coastal cities, home to world-class entertainment, fine wine and dining experiences, and the natural beauty of the sun, sand, and surf. The city itself grew up around the historic Mission San Buenaventura—one of California’s 21 historic icons—founded in 1782 but things really took off in the early 20th century. In fact, Ventura figuratively exploded in the 1920s when oil was discovered in the fields outside city limits. A building boom ensued that transformed Ventura nearly overnight. It was during this first big boom that a number of Ventura’s historic landmark buildings were constructed—many of which still stand today for pictures by amateur and professional photographers alike.
Ventura experienced another boom during wartime and its growth hasn’t slowed since. The city has become a true California icon with excellent surfing, sandy beached, tech companies galore, multiple college campuses, and iconic adventure company Patagonia all right in this tiny 32 square mile plot of land.
