    Question Ventura, CA

    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 north

    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.

    There are some decent beaches in Malibu.

    The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley. They have the old Air Force One and a copy of the Oval Office

    I once saw a map to celebrity homes in Westlake Village/Thousand Oaks area.

    If you're in Ventura on 23-24 June, the Port Hueneme navy base is having Seabee days. The Seabee museum on the base.

    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)...

    Buenaventura mission.

    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...

    Say hi to a friend of mine, Natl Parks Ranger Stoltz!

    I'd meet up with ya but my reserve unit is doing its active duty time and I will be gone for 3 weeks. Sorry.

    I guess it depends on how far you are willing to drive?

    Solvang is a "Danish" village, very quaint.

    The Madonna Inn has all the theme rooms, like the Flintstones, it's near San Luis Obispo.

    Any of the Missions in the area along El Camino Real.

    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. Seabee days has a lot of displays and carnival type stuff.

    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.

    Trust me, I am far from rich. I started saving for this two years ago. It is a 10th anniversary trip. We got Air, Car and hotel for under $1000, so it was not to bad.
    You get to go on trips, weren't you just in New Jersey?

    You just have to wade and keep your head above it and you will be fine.

    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.

    I know LA is having budget problems, but I didn't know it was being auctioned off! I hope you got it for a good price!
