Southern Californians flock to Ventura to soak up the sun and salt at San Buenaventura State Beach and ride the waves at Surfer’s Point. This city is an essential stop on a Californian coastal road trip, and people often listen to America’s “Ventura Highway” on the speakers as they drive on the Freeway in the sunshine. For a glimpse into the city’s rich past, visit the downtown area. It is dotted with historic buildings such as Mission Basilica San Buenaventura, Ortega Adobe home, and Ventura County Museum. Stop by the Visitors Center for brochures, cultural events, and a retelling of the tale of Ventura’s Two Trees (sadly, only one remains). If traveling with your four-legged friend, then check out these top pet-friendly Airbnbs in Ventura, California.
