Some History of Ventura

<p>Ventura is notable for being the best surfing in Southern California, and the harbor is home to the local fishing industry as well as being great for bars, restaurants and shopping. The downtown area is old and historically important and offers much nightlife and shopping. The Mission San Buenaventura was built in the late 1700s and remains just as much a hub of the community now as it was when built. The Majestic Ventura Theatre is also located downtown and is the prime big concert venue in the area. Your Ventura apartment will be the perfect place to rest after exploring all this area has to offer.</p>

An Omelet That's a Winner

<p>Because Ventura is such a diverse town, the restaurants are the same way. From upscale places like the Westside Cellar and Brooks with its great views to little places the locals love like Capriccio and Mary's Secret Garden (the best vegetarian place around), you'll be out discovering your own neighborhood places once settled into your Ventura apartment. If breakfast is your thing, then do plan to try Pete's Breakfast House. His omelet's will definitely get you through the day!</p>

The Local Hockey Bar

<p>At night, you'll find sports bars like Rookees and Tailgate (great for hockey). If you like quirky, then try Zoey's where there's live music upstairs and good food downstairs. The Candlelight has music and a good bar while you might want to give Paddy's a chance if you like it lively, and they have a great patio too. Once in your Ventura apartment, you'll quickly find any number of great bars and places to meet some new friends.</p>
