Family vacation in Southern California without crowds

If you live in Southern California, you know that summer attracts tourists from all over the country and around the world. This means that it is difficult to go anywhere without encountering a lot of people and traffic-these are the two main factors that make children [and parents] cranky.

Ventura seems to be a place that retains a laid-back California atmosphere and brings a lot of fun to children, especially the three cities known as West Ventura County [Camarillo, Oxnard and Ventura]. VenturaCountyWest is located on Highway 101 north of Los Angeles. It has inaccessible beaches [with free parking], marine adventures, and many easy-to-raise children. Summer activities. Here are some things to check.

Channel Islands National Park

Cruise from Ventura or Channel Islands [Oxnard] to Channel Islands National Park. These islands are only 11 miles off the coast of Ventura County. On the way, you can see dolphins, seals, pelicans and other wildlife. Once you reach the shore, you can go hiking, overnight, kayaking. Tours can be booked through Island Packers [].

Ventura Harbor Village

Ventura Harbor Village has an arcade with an old-fashioned indoor carousel, an arcade and a candy store with more than 20 types of fudge [made fresh daily]. Families can rent paddles and electric boats to explore the quiet harbour passage. Back on shore, plan to dine in one of the casual port bistros featuring freshly caught seafood.

Ventura County Fair & # 39; Raceway

Almost every weekend, "baubles" cars, motorcycles, and various other racing cars make their appearance at the Ventura County Fair in Ventura County. It's all fun when you cheer for your favorite driver.

Gullwing Children's Museum

This children's museum in Oxnard is very extolling from the outside, but once inside, eight or fewer museums will have a lot of work to do and see that they won't know where to start. They can be dressed as firefighters, doctors, or astronauts pretending they are on the moon on an Apollo ship. There are snakes to catch here, treasures to be found in geological excavations, and there are many Lego bricks that can be built at will. Children can give it a try on the climbing wall or use their imagination in the driver's seat of an actual car.

Sky High Sports

You won't see a big sign from the highway announcing Sky High Sports Camarillo. It must be in an industrial park-this place is huge. It's full of trampolines and floors and walls. Kids can play trampoline dodgeball and other organized games, or … just jump. All under supervision. Skyco also has laser tags. Kids will definitely sweat and get tired-this is the perfect way to spend an afternoon.
