Ventura's Southern California location makes it a haven for surfers, sun worshipers, and those who love the Pacific Ocean. If you value peace and quiet, the Channel Islands, one of America's most isolated national parks, lies less than two hours away by boat. If you prefer lots of fun and activity, downtown entertains with restaurants and a thriving arts scene. Near the hub of E. California and E. Main Streets, you can easily walk to both cheap hotels in Ventura and some of its high-end accommodations.
