The first time I saw the yellow umbrellas lining the beach I thought, 'has some local artist gone mad?" They seemed out of place on our hometown beach in Ventura, it is something I would expect to see in Santa Barbara, which is the Riviera West. Nevertheless, they were on our beach and despite my misgivings they have been around for a couple of summer seasons.

Located just south of the Ventura Pier, The Yellow Umbrella Company rents full size beach umbrellas by the hour. They offer food delivery and towel rental services as well.

I would recommend if you are here during the months in which they offer rentals--usually June through September--then rent in the morning hours when the wind is calm because by afternoon you might have a mouthful of blowing sand with your burger.

Address: 128 S. California Street Ventura, CA 93001
Directions: Just south of the Ventura pier, look for the rental van.
