A classic Southern California beach town, Ventura is 60 miles north of Los Angeles and 50 miles south of Santa Barbara. It boasts beaches that are not too crowded, great surf spots, a thriving harbor, coastal bike paths and lush agricultural fields. The mild weather brings summer highs of 80 degrees and average winter lows of 45.
Lincoln Military Housing offers 1,221 homes within the communities of Point Mugu, Port Hueneme, and Catalina Heights serving the Naval Base Ventura County.
Ventura offers all of the amenities of a big city, yet with a relaxed, small town feel. A classic Main Street offers a mix of boutiques, cafes, and antique shops, as well as a vibrant arts district. One of the best-known attractions is the Channel Islands National Park. Only 14 miles off the coast; it is an all-natural playground for those interested in whale watching, dolphins, and other sea life. Other area activities include camping, fishing, kayaking, hiking, and diving. Attractions feature Camino Real Park—an ideal spot to view yearly Monarch butterfly migration, Los Padres National Forest, Lake Casitas, and the kid-friendly Golf N' Stuff.
Historical highlights include the Mission San Buena Ventura, the Albinger Archaeological Museum, city walking tours, and the ever popular "ghost hunts." A short drive from Ventura, there's the Fillmore & Western Railway in Fillmore, as well as Santa Barbara with its rich history and missions.
