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!

Great place to walk and keep cool. Had a bite to eat and visited the free beach across the street. I suggest parking at Harbor Village beach first and then parking at beach. Two way road can be treacherous. Two year old loved the beach...More

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.

I love the Ventura Harbor Village and I'm there virtually every weekend. They have shops for hats and art and tourist souvenirs. There is almost always live music playing at one of the many great restaurants there. For weekend brunch my favorite is Le Petite...More

Recently remodeled landscape. Nice art details and very clean. The Harbor Front is a beautiful walk by Sail and Power Boats. The Channel and Ocean are on the other side of the Harbor. Seasonal Art and Car Shows. Great place!!!

Worth the trip for the restaurants but everything else is pretty tired. Beautiful view, though if you just want to sit and people watch. I just get a little sad because I'm sure it used to be vibrant but now gives off the vibe of...More

Sorry, I missed your question until now. I did see buses coming into the village area and sine the little museum is at the end I am sure it must be on the bus route. I hope you were able to make it to the little village... More
