In downtown Oxnard, Heritage Square is an amazing collection of magnificently restored homes and lushly landscaped gardens.

Oxnard’s harbor provides access to Channel Islands National Park, “America’s Galapagos.” The natural and cultural resources of its five different islands have been steadfastly preserved here and although it’s just a short boat trip away, these islands will have you feeling like you’re in a different world.

PORT HUENEME

Stroll wide sandy beaches in Port Hueneme, a seaside community located between Oxnard and Ventura. Its original Chumash Indian name, Wenemu, means “resting place.” And it doesn’t take much time at the fifty-acre Hueneme Beach Park to discover that this city is a place for refreshing the mind and soul.

Port Hueneme Beach Park’s expansive sandy beaches, south-facing surfing waves, volleyball courts, and walkable beachside promenade promise satisfaction for every kind of beachgoer – sunbathers and surfers alike.
