Ventura: Channel Island Views and Laid-Back Shores
Not every coastal town has a stunning view of five beautiful islands. Home to Channel Islands National Park, Ventura prides itself on its relaxed lifestyle, walkable streets, and, of course, its pristine views. "Living by the beach really is peaceful. I think there's something about it that is so magical," proclaims Ventura Mayor Cheryl Heitman. With its swath of coast anchored by the California Coastal Trail, Ventura receives visitors year-round who are looking to bike and hike the popular trail that can lead them all the way to Santa Barbara. Voted as one of "The 10 Best Places to Live Now" by Men's Journal, Ventura is unrivaled in Southern California for preserving its small town charm and laid-back vibes.
