450 Harbor Blvd
Tip: For an amazing panoramic
view of Ventura take the elevator ride up to the “Top of the Harbor”
Ballroom. This used to be one of the few revolving restaurants in
California. Sorry, it doesn’t revolve anymore, but it’s still one the
best places for an eye-popping view of Ventura and the breathtaking
The C-Street promenade located at the base of the hotel provides the perfect opportunity for a romantic stroll along the water front. On summer weekends this area is usually a buzz with craft fairs and other events. The surfers, however, hang out here for the “righteous waves.” Walk West past the hotel towards the mouth of Ventura River to enjoy watching surfers and kite surfers hone their skills. The path is also a haven for joggers, walkers and bicyclists alike. You may even get lucky and see dolphins swimming past as you stroll on hand-in-hand.
