Neighbor to the scenic Channel Islands, Channel Islands Harbor is a working harbor that offers fun-filled water activities for the whole family. About an hour's drive north from Los Angeles, the Harbor features several beach-lined parks and coastline for picnics and surfing, as well as nearby biking and walking paths. While at the Harbor, visit our many shops and dine at one of several restaurants with menus ranging from deli sandwiches to Brazilian cuisine. Be sure to check out the Channel Islands Maritime Museum with its ever-changing exhibitions, world-class maritime art, and ship models.

This area is great because you can park your car and walk along the harbor to restaurants museums. Festivals are often held here. Good place ride your bike, walk your dog or just enjoy the views.

I walked along the harbor in the evening and it was very nice. The view of the boats is amazing and there are various restaurants along it that offer a view of it. It is definitely worth the visit.
