Anyone know of anything to do there? We are going to be in the area at the end of June. Flying into LAX and heading up. I already have a tour to the Channel Islands planned. What other things are there to do? Why Ventura? It is close to the Central Valley Wineries but I don't plan on spending all my time there. Not a big fan of LA so we decided to head northThe opinions given in my posts DO NOT reflect the opinions, views, policies, and/or procedures of my employing agency.

I would check out Santa Barbara or San Francisco. Otherwise, I am not sure there is much to see in Ventura.
If you come near San Diego, let me know and we can hook up.

I don't think they are filming anything new in Ventura County. Usually they do it in the fall/winter time. I could check with the company I do extra work for.
You could visit the Hells Angels chapter in Ventura, maybe meet George Christie (I heard he is the natl pres)...
Santa Barbara: UC Santa Barbara, the beach, State street clubs, wineries in the Santa Ynez Valley, Solvang ... a 45 min drive north you can visit Michael Jackson's Neverland...

The man who will go where his colors go, without asking who will fight a phantom foe in the jungle and mountain range, without counting, and who will suffer and die in the midst of incredible hardship, without complaint, is still what he has always been, from Imperial Rome to sceptered Britain to democratic America. He is the stuff of which legions are made. ...His pride is in his colors and his regiment, his training hard and thorough and coldly realistic, to fit him for what he must face...and his obedience is to his orders. He has been called United State Marine.

Hava fun in Ventura I was stationed in Port Hueneme when I was active duty. I second checking out the museum and Seabee Days. Lots of old firearms and military stuff at the museum.

Thanks fro the ideas guys. I don't think I will make it down to San Diego jato, just won't have the time. I looked into going to San Diego, but the airfare was too high. Los Angeles was on sale that week. We are only there for 4 days. I would definitly like to see the Reagan library and thinking about heading up to San Luis Obispo.The opinions given in my posts DO NOT reflect the opinions, views, policies, and/or procedures of my employing agency.

I agree with the above. if you go to the seabee museum you might see a wooden sake drum that was shared with us in japan for the 50th anniversary of the seabees(you might even find a where I wrote ''i can't believe we drank the whole thing). good bike riding if you're into that. also there was a sunshine dounut shop near the base that served custard filled dounut holes that we used to bet for. pm me if you find it I want to see if they deliver. you will be close to hollweird.

on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
brought my rifle."

The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
