The Ventura Harbor is a particularly popular draw for visitors and locals, and it hosts events throughout the year. These include Wet Wednesday yacht races, Steel Drum Saturdays, and Kid's Club meetings with arts and crafts. They also have special festivals and parties throughout the year, so check what's happening before you go. Many of Ventura's hotels are located near the harbor, so families can enjoy the water and community without going too far.

When to Visit Ventura, CA

The best time to visit Ventura is in the summer months, from June through August. These months are optimal for outdoor activities like swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and sailing. It's also the best time of year for humpback whale watching and when the sea lions start having pups on the Channel Islands just off the coast. The coastal warmth and animal interest also draw more tourists, and summer can be a very busy time for families trying to get away while school is out. Be sure to book your accommodation far enough in advance that you find the right hotel without overpaying.

If you're looking to beat the crowds, consider visiting Ventura during the Spring or Fall months, either March through May or September and October. The Channel Islands are still alive during this time, with wildflowers blooming and seabird nesting in the spring or northern elephant seals arriving in the late fall. The fall waters are particularly clear, with diving visibility exceeding 100ft in some places and water temperatures still around 70 degrees from the summer sun. On land, guests can hike through Camino Real Park from October through February to take in the monarch butterfly migration. Natural wonders await around every corner.

If you arrive during winter, don't worry; there's still plenty to see and do. Harbor seals start pupping, and many locals claim the best sunsets occur in December and January. January through March is the best time to visit if you're interested in seeing Pacific Gray Whales, and there are many tour companies that know exactly where to find them. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, who wouldn't want to escape the snow of the north to visit? These months are also the best for finding the best hotel deals, without the tourists crowds driving up demand.

The bellhop will whisk away your bags as you relax on the terrace or grab a newspaper from the lobby. When you're ready to venture out, the Crowne Plaza is just a short walk from the Pier, Seaside Park, and Mission San Buenaventura. Each day can have a different excursion, taking in the sites of Ventura without moving more than a mile in any direction.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Comfort Inn Ventura Beach. This hotel is south of most resorts, letting guests get away from the busy areas and enjoy their quiet corner of the beach.

Best Value Options in Ventura, CA

If you're looking to stay a little outside of downtown Ventura, consider hotels near the Channel Islands Harbor. The Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Hotel & Resort is less than a mile from the harbor and boasts beautiful views of the ocean. Guests can enjoy a free breakfast and then relax by the outdoor pool, or catch a cruise to the Channel Islands to take in the local wildlife.

The Hampton Inn Channel Islands Harbor/Oxnard also offers free breakfast but boasts a view of the harbor itself, rather than sandy beaches. If you're planning to spend your trip diving and sailing, then you'll want to stay right where the action is, and there are plenty of aquatic activities nearby.

Finally, the Casa Via Mar Inn & Tennis Club is always one of the first hotels to get fully booked near the Channel Islands. There are sprawling tennis courts and an outdoor pool and hot tub for relaxing after a heated match. There are also free breakfast and free Wi-Fi, proving the value of this popular accommodation.

Arts and Culture in Ventura, CA

While Ventura is a hub for nature, wildlife, and water sports, you can't overlook the diverse art scene that's grown here. While you're near the harbor, check out the Buenaventura Harbor Village Gallery, open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. Then visit the 643 Project Space, which is meant to give students and young artists a leg up through gallery exposure. Both of these exhibits are incredibly colorful and unique, and can't be missed.

For history buffs, visit the San Buenaventura Mission located inside Mission San Buenaventura Historic Park. The park itself is a collection of archaeological sites, and it is one of only three historical mission sites located in a downtown area in California. This allows guests to step into history after walking only a few feet from the bustle of the city.

The Albinger Archaeological Museum has preserved 3,500 years of artifacts and proudly displays them to guests year round. The artifacts range across five different cultures, from ancient natives to the Chumash Indians who resided in the area as early as the 1500s. The museum is only open on weekdays, but makes an exception during the warmer months by opening Saturdays and Sundays. Before you go, check with the museum, as these hours and days are subject to change.

Whatever you stop and see in Ventura, you're sure to be amazed by the beauty of nature or the talent of local artists. It's truly a relaxing getaway to enjoy the coast and cool breezes coming off of the Pacific Ocean. In the same way that adventure isn't far away, neither are accommodating hotels that can meet whatever budget, family size, or plans that you have.
