This is my favorite place to walk in Ventura. I have enjoyed walking and riding bike on the Promenade. Must pay for parking unless you eat at the Aloha Restaurant.

The pier is fine, nothing special, but we enjoyed walking out to the end for a nice walk. Easy walk, no smoking, and a nice cafe at start.

Perfect to stroll down to the pier which is right off the bike path. Kids are of no concern of falling in like other piers too.

The food was fresh. Very good king crab and tasty salad. I also tried my first Michelada. Very tasty drink. Nice atmosphere. Would come back.
