Ventura, which is officially recognized or referred to as the "City of San Buenaventura" (which is a Spanish mission founded in 1782) is the county seat of Ventura County, California. It was named after the Italian St. Bonaventure, where it got the nickname “city of good fortune.” It was also called Shisholop which meant “in the mud” by the city’s original inhabitants, native Chumash people. The city is located northwest of Los Angeles on the California coast.

Camino Real is 38 acres of sports lover’s paradise with their tons of sports fields and courts and is also a pleasant park with playgrounds. This park has a fenced in area in the southwest corner for dogs and their owners to socialize and exercise. The amenities for Fido are amazing, including convenient close to the ground drinking fountains, benches, and doggie-doo bags. At winter, thousands of monarch butterflies gather and flutter around in the sun by the eucalyptus trees locate in the park.

Surfer’s Point might as well be called Dog’s Point due to numerous water-loving dogs that meet in the area. It is a popular spot for surfing, windsurfing, and has showers, picnic facilities, and restrooms. You might bump into Haole, a local surfing celebrity, swerving his paws on his board. Surf’s up Dawg! From midtown to downtown, parks to beaches, restaurants to hotels, there’s so much that can be explored with your entire family with canine members. Come, take a seat, and stay for a while in Ventura!
