“Seas” The Day Seaside at Ventura Harbor Village
Published June 26, 2020
Ventura Harbor Village is open for summer! SEAS the day with us, seaside! We have waterfront dining, seaside shopping, pampering, and entertainment. See below for local favorites, recommendations, and the ultimate guide to summer fun in Ventura Harbor.
Looking for a relaxing vacation spot with fresh ocean air? Chose from two stunning Ventura Harbor hotels – Four Points by Sheraton Ventura Harbor Resort or their sister property, Holiday Inn Express & Suites Ventura Harbor. Both hotels are a short walk from Ventura Harbor Village.
Ventura Harbor has over a dozen waterfront restaurants with cuisines from around the world (Greek, Mexican, Cuban, American, and French just to name a few!) If it’s your very first time to the Village, don’t leave with out indulging in famous fish and chips from Andria’s Seafood Restaurant and take a stroll down the promenade for ice cream from Coastal Cone. You can also pick up fresh catch from one of three fish markets, dine-in for fresh seafood at a favorite local spot with phenomenal views, or grab tacos with homemade tortillas and head to the beach.
Feeling adventurous? The Channel Islands National Park & Marine Sanctuary lie just off the coast and Island Packers has daily departures from Ventura Harbor. There are a variety of excursions available to suit your comfort level (including landing and non-landing trips) and Summer Whale Watching! There are also private boats, charters, deep sea fishing boats, and diving adventure options that conveniently depart from Ventura Harbor as well.
When you visit a destination surrounded by the sea, make time to get on the water! Take an electric boat out for a spin and join a fitness class or yoga session on a stand up paddle board. Sign the kids up for surf camp. Maybe even take a dive lesson for a future Channel Islands excursion! If you prefer to stay on land, sign the family up for a thrilling escape room experience and customize a chocolate bar with your name + sweet/salty snacks.
You can’t leave this beautiful place without taking a little piece of it home with you. Some of our favorite summertime merchandise includes Ventura wear, ocean-inspired art, nautical treasures, bathing suits, sandals, beach hats, candles, and sea kelp bath bombs. All of which you can find from locally owned shops throughout Ventura Harbor Village!
