"Home for the past 4 years" Oxnard by StephanB

Oxnard Travel Guide: 56 reviews and 84 photos

Wide open beaches

We moved to Oxnard in 2000 from our home in Michigan. It's a beach community just outside of Ventura, up the coast from LA about an hour. The dogs have free reign of the beaches up here. Every weekend I start my days with a cup of Coffee and a walk with the dogs.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Weather, beaches, prices
  • Cons:Still some bad areas
  • In a nutshell:Perfect, if you can't afford Santa Barbara and Malibu

    Dogs do have free reign of the beaches, but their owners still have obligation to pick up after them. Forty+ years ago the bigger beach problem was oil & tar & we all had paint thinner to dissolve it off our shoes & used outdoor shower heads. Doug
