We love our Harbor! Our Facebook page is a place for our local community, as well as welcome tourists stopping through, to enjoy our views, to post and share what's happening at our Harbor: from a day on the beach, a beautiful sunset, whale spotting, bird and seal pictures, to restaurant, nightlife or new water excursions taking place at Ventura Harbor Village! Ventura Harbor Village is California’s seaside playground brimming with fresh seafood and a wide variety of cuisines to tantalize your palette, boutique shops and art galleries around every corner, SUP, kayak, pedal and electric boat rentals to get on the water and see the seals, family fun at the arcade, kite flying, or playing in the sand at one of the safest beaches in the County “Mother’s Beach” (Harbor Cove Beach), daily boat trips, as well as sailing and dive charters to explore the Channel Islands National Park, coastal fashion and décor, a beautiful walking promenade with daily Happy Hours overlooking the boats, and a comedy club boasting top celebrity names to put a smile on your face. Now you can see why we Love our Harbor!

The place is pretty dead...a good portion of the spaces are available for rent. Most of the businesses that are there are either closed or are touristy restaurants. We walked around waiting for the sunset after a boat trip to Santa Cruz island. Brophy Bros...More

We spent an afternoon wondering around while we were staying in Ventura. Really enjoyed a stroll along the path looking at the boats & people watching in the Harbor village.

There are many great vendors in this district. There are also great activities like whale watching and paddle boating. The restaurants are great, the ice cream is delicious, the walk and scenery can't be beat, and the carousel is a must for small children.
