With its year-round sunny skies and fresh ocean breezes, California weather begs for exploring the great outdoors via foot, and Ventura Harbor Village’s spectacular waterfront promenade does not disappoint. The seaside enclave gives visitors a new way to reconnect with the sky and the sea via a 3-mile roundtrip Instagrammable trek. Traveling by boat is a fun way to discover a destination up close and personal, but the same can be said for walking. So park the car, pocket the keys, and stay fit and healthy by adding a “walkable” regime to the travel itinerary. Outdoor enthusiasts start their journey at the picturesque Harbor Cove Beach with its breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean before arriving at the stunning Ventura Keys.
Along the way, travelers witness a bevy of majestic yachts, sail, pedal, and electric boats; a myriad of water sport activities; scenic marinas; an expansive working Harbor with commercial fishing amenities; and upscale residential communities. Nature lovers also delight in diverse wildlife: whales, seals, sea lions and birds in flight. Culminate a visit by strolling among the more than 30 unique shops and art galleries, savoring alfresco dining, staying at a full-service hotel and viewing the brilliance of a magnificent sunset …all perfect ways to warm yourself SEAside and SEAS the day.
