Ventura Community Information

Buenaventura – The City of Good Fortune
Ventura Real Estate

Although the official name of the city is Buenaventura, it is more commonly referred to as Ventura.  Ventura was recently named one of the most livable communities in America.  The City of Buenaventura is located in Ventura County, just 63 miles northwest of Los Angeles.  It is a coastal city with a warm climate and has been referred to as “the Hawaii of the Mainland”.  The Spanish explorers called it the “land of everlasting summers” and named it Buenaventura, translated literally means “Good Fortune”.

The City of Good Fortune is truly blessed with an abundance of natural beauty created by the ocean, coastline, rivers, hillsides and agricultural land.  The hills of the Transverse Range behind Ventura rise to nearly 1200 feet, forming a dramatic visual backdrop. The hillside area encompasses over 4,000 acres of steep hillsides, barrancas, ridge tops and narrow flat valleys. Ventura lies in a coastal plain between the Santa Clara and Ventura Rivers. It has miles of uncrowded beaches, numerous historical sites, bike paths and parks.

Ventura real estate manages its growth carefully with its smart growth plan.  Therefore, there are still  acres of orchards, fields, hillsides and clean, clear ocean waves.  There is also a very active downtown area.  The housing in Ventura offers many choices; from condominiums to large, luxury homes.

~ Ventura Economy

In the 1800s, Ventura’s economy was sustained by the farmer and rancher and, in the early 1900s, it was the oil fields.  Today, modern Ventura´s economy base has changed and is diversified. The fields of today are technological-related fields, including biotechnology, computer software, entertainment, multimedia, education, services, and the government sector.  Services, retail, manufacturing and government account for the majrity of Ventura´s current economic base. Ventura real estate is the county seat and the Ventura County government (including the County Hospital) is the largest single employer.  The City of Ventura and its business leaders have joined in an ambitious partnership to ensure that Ventura retains its premiere position as an exciting and vital place to work, raise a family and enjoy life.

This beautiful Ventura real estate seaside community is known as a haven for business, melding thriving small businesses with high-tech enterprises.  Although Ventura has a population of over 105,000, it is a community with a small town heart and entrepreneurial savvy.  It is ideally located for business, with major airports and a deep-water port nearby.  The city has an infrastructure that is superior to most Southern California cities.

~ Ventura Tourism

Tourism is also very important to the local Ventura real estate economy.  The beaches, museums, historical sites, the harbor and the nearby Channel Islands attract over 1.5 million visitors a year.

Speaking of visitors, the townspeople welcome them to the area and appreciate their interest in the community’s many attractions. There is so much here to see and do.  The Ventura Harbor has marinas, restaurants, shops, galleries and the Channel Islands National Park Visitor Center.  In addition, there is the Pacific Ocean, rolling hills, the Los Padres National Forest and the rivers which provide an abundance of recreational activities, such as surfing, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, sailing, golfing, camping, fresh-water fishing, hiking, biking, scenic tours and historical tours.

History buffs also love visiting Ventura real estate.  The city is home to the Mission San Buenaventura, the ninth mission to be founded by Father Junipero Serra in 1782.  The mission has been restored to its early, simple splendor.  The Ventura real estate area has several historical sites, including the Olivas Adobe.  The Ventura County Museum of History has displays on the lives of the first occupants of the area: the Chumash Indians, the Spanish explorers and Ventura´s early settlers.

Using Ventura real estate as a hub, the visitor has so many opportunities that it is easy to forget that part of every vacation should be “just to relax”.  So take a six-month vacation or come back again and again.  There will always be something new to enjoy.

Some of the parks feature dynamic views and some are located right on the beach.  The Ventura park system includes more than 700 acres of parkland and facilities, including two championship golf courses.  The City has recently completed an aquatic center with multi-use sports fields and bike paths.  Ventura is also the gateway to the Channel Islands National Park, just off the central coast.

~ Ventura Schools

Schools for residents of Ventura real estate offer a full range of educational options, from pre-school to doctoral programs, both public schools and private schools.  Many of the schools occupying Ventura real estate have received the “California Distinguished School” award.  The area´s universities have ensured Ventura a culturally rich and highly educated population.  A good  education program ensures a community that is progressive, that can provide a skilled workforce and that can maintain a more upscale lifestyle.
