My time in Ventura is coming to an end. I will be gone for almost the entirety of May visiting friends in Croatia and we move up to the Redding land in June. With my move-out day growing closer, I wanted to write a smidge about my time spent eating in Ventura. While the list is not exhaustive of every place I've eaten here, it's pretty close. If you're not up for an extensive review of seventeen different Ventura restaurants then I would skip this post. Or if you're hungry and the only thing left in your cupboard is an expired can of Campbell's cream of mushroom soup.
Walk ten minutes from my house and you will find yourself at San Buenaventura State Beach. From my bedroom window I can see the ocean; when there's not a roaring Amtrak flashing by. Everywhere you go in Ventura, there's a sign pointing toward the beach. There's way too many breakfast joints, liquor stores, and surf shops for this to be anything other than a beach town.
