Winter is a Beach

in Southern California so is summer for that matter. Surfers wait for a swell sunrise at Seaside Park in Ventura. The park is located across the street from the Ventura County Fairgrounds which hosts a weekly Flea Market on Sunday as well as many other special events.  Both are located a few blocks from old downtown where you'll find plenty of antique and other shops, eateries, and Mission San Buenaventura

There's always plenty to do in this area - check out what's going on now: Things to do in Ventura

Ventura isn't the only beach to go to of course.  Basically any beach will do.  A couple of our favorites (because there is more than just the beach) are:

Paradise Cove in Malibu - this is a particularly beautiful private beach that has many amenities including a cafe.  It is so wildly popular on summer weekends that it causes major traffic problems on PCH.  However, a fine day in the winter is a great time to go there.

Venice Beach - always fun to go for the boardwalk scene. As the sun sets try the rooftop lounge at the Hotel Erwin - enjoy poke tacos, your favorite beverage, a comfy couch, and a spinning DJ with your view of the setting sun.

Newport Beach - a great place to get out on the water.  We went on a whale watching cruise there last summer and the trip did not disappoint.
