Homes in Ventura typically do not have central air installed because it is a beach city. This is not an issue in most cases, however there are are a few weeks yearly when the heat can be unbearable without a/c. This is why it is wise to purchase a portable a/c unit to keep stored.

Ventura is a coastal city in Southern California with a decent sized population, but small-town vibes. In the West End, you will find quaint bungalows and old Victorian gems. In the East End, there are parks and new construction nestled among farmland. A vast variety of outdoor activities include: surfing at Rincon, hiking up to Two Trees, or bike riding along the promenade. Culturally you will find everything for the modern hippie to call paradise.
