Channel Islands Visitor's Center - A wonderful place to experience the natural history and beauty of the Channel Islands.  There is a bookstore and observatory with great views of the harbor.
Museum of History and Art - A museum with something for everyone.  When we were there there was a watercolor exhibit, a docent giving an informative tour and a special art event going on in the courtyard.  
Olivas Adobe - An wonderful example of Spanish architecture depicts how the wealthy and powerful lived.  This adobe is over 150 years old and featured on the National Register of Historic Places.
Ortega Adobe -  This charming little adobe shows how the common folk lived.  The building features cut aways depicting building techniques and still-lifes of homey scenes.
Ventura City Hall - This beautiful building is a working, functioning city hall.  However, it is worth checking out - the architecture is amazing.
Ventura Harbor Village and Marina -  A wonderful community filled with shops, boats, restaurants, the Channel Islands Visitor's Center and miles of white sand beaches.
