The Best of NileGuide
- In this favorite California surf town, cozy cafes, coffee shops, seafood spots, Mexican eateries, and wine bars are the place to take in the flavor of local life. Hikers, bikers, surfers, island explorers, and of course active locals tend to pass through town with a mission, so many of the area's restaurants cater to the eat-and-run crowd. While Ventura's food may be fast, dishes are fresh and filling. Diners without a time limit are in for a treat-—formal establishments favor local fish and farmers market finds.
