I visited Ventura about two months ago and had a great time in the city. I spent a two week vacation in California and decided to meet up with a few friends for 7 days in Ventura. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza, right on the water, and it was amazing. The scenery in the city of Ventura is breathtaking, to put it simply.

I hear that jobs are easy to come by in Ventura as well. For some reason, Ventura is often stereotyped as an area with high crime, but that is simply not true. I'm not sure what the crime statistics are, but I felt very safe throughout my visit to Ventura.

Downtown Ventura offers some great cultural attractions, things to do, artists, and shopping. I bought some awesome Birkenstocks at "Footprints of Ventura." I also ate at quite a few great restaurants while in Ventura. Hush Restaurant & Lounge is a great place to chill out. I also really liked the Bombay Bar & Grille for a great burger and beer. My favorite time in Ventura was simply going out to eat with friends, spending a few hours at the beach, and then hitting up some nightclubs in the area to meet resident locals of California, and specifically, Ventura.

Overall, I'd recommend Ventura to anyone as a great cultural city and community.
