Things to do

Culture and creatures in Ventura County

The great thing about Ventura County is that there's something for everyone. Fancy squeezing a little culture into your stay? Head to historic downtown Ventura where you'll find San Buenaventura Mission sits less than a mile from the Ventura Botanical Gardens. For something a little different, move inland to check out Grandma Prisbrey's Bottle Village, a folk-art piece, 25 years in the making, and a California Historic Landmark. Traveling with kids? While not strictly within the boundaries of the county, Santa Barbara Zoo, around a 45-minute drive from most Ventura County vacation rentals, is an easy way to earn some brownie points.


Lazy days on Ventura County beaches

Beach days are a natural part of the landscape here, and Ventura County has more than a few idyllic sandy spots. Most travelers will want to squeeze in a trip to San Buenaventura State Beach, where the historic Ventura Pier doubles up as a hire shop for body boards, bikes, and beach chairs for those who are happy to sit and watch the world go by. If you're hoping to catch some California waves, or perhaps just want to watch the pros do their thing, then you'd be just as well heading straight to the aptly-named Surfer's Point.


Choose your ideal season in Ventura County

Like most coastal California cities, this area benefits from a Mediterranean climate. In practice, this means that the summer months of June through August can see temperatures soar past 80. If you prefer things a little cooler and fancy avoiding the biggest crowds, Ventura County vacation rentals are a good bet in the spring months of March to May, although if nabbing a great deal on your chosen rental is a priority, fall getaways in September and November and winter breaks are definitely on the menu. Sure, it may rain a little but temperatures can still be in the high 60s.
