Considered one of the most livable and desirable communities in the nation, the City of Ventura (pop. 111,790) sits in California’s Gold Coast region slightly north of Los Angeles County. A spectacular coastline and incredible climate are just two reasons why media have referred to the community as “the off-ramp to paradise” and identified it as one of the best cities in Southern California in which to live.
