We love our Harbor! Our Facebook page is a place for our local community, as well as welcome tourists stopping through, to enjoy our views, to post and share what's happening at our Harbor: from a day on the beach, a beautiful sunset, whale spotting, bird and seal pictures, to restaurant, nightlife or new water excursions taking place at Ventura Harbor Village! Ventura Harbor Village is California’s seaside playground brimming with fresh seafood and a wide variety of cuisines to tantalize your palette, boutique shops and art galleries around every corner, SUP, kayak, pedal and electric boat rentals to get on the water and see the seals, family fun at the arcade, kite flying, or playing in the sand at one of the safest beaches in the County “Mother’s Beach” (Harbor Cove Beach), daily boat trips, as well as sailing and dive charters to explore the Channel Islands National Park, coastal fashion and décor, a beautiful walking promenade with daily Happy Hours overlooking the boats, and a comedy club boasting top celebrity names to put a smile on your face. Now you can see why we Love our Harbor!

Shops are out numbered by places to eat and all are rather tacky. The only interesting shop is the local artists co-op. Nice views of the harbour and boats. Would not go back. The pier is more interesting.

The restaurants are all very good. The shopping is great....you can find some reasonable items here. It's a great place to relax, enjoy the boats, and just have fun.. the ocean is a few steps away, and you can also enjoy that, too.

Shops, restaurants and the Channel Islands National Park museum. Best part is the walk along the harbor and viewing the boats. Parking is free.

This is a wonderful place to take a walk on a sunny Ventura day. The restaurants and shops sometimes change, but there is always someplace to get a meal. Parking can be a bit tight on weekends and holidays.

It has been a long time since they started the project - last year or before that. Until now, it's not yet complete. When I saw their ad the first time (that they will be doing a new structure), I wasn't too pleased. I envisioned...More
