Welcome Visitors

Oxnard Collage

From its breathtaking sunny shores to its diverse cultural activities, Oxnard is a welcome retreat. Whether kicking off your shoes and running barefoot along the shore or swinging your hips during the annual Oxnard Salsa Festival, the city is alive with activities and events.

A mere hour northwest of Los Angeles, Oxnard stands as the entrance to California's Central Coast and represents all that the Central Coast has to offer-a progressive cultural diversity wrapped in historic California-style. Oxnard prides itself on its diversity and nowhere is this more evident than in our offerings of things to do. Sample a glass of kosher red wine. Visit our Historic District. Celebrate at one of our cultural events.

Perhaps Oxnard's best asset is our seven miles of uncrowded, white sandy beaches that offer surfers and sun-lovers a real haven. Oxnard is also a departure point for the Channel Islands National Park and Marine Sanctuary. Only 11 miles off the coast, this remote park comprised of five of the eight-island archipelago, has been called "America's Galápagos."

For the young and carefree (and young-at-heart), there's the Channel Islands Harbor, two miles from our historic downtown. Kayaking, electric boat rentals, private yacht and sailing charters, sport-fishing and scuba diving are just a few of Oxnard's outdoors adventures. And, for those who prefer land to sea, our nearly year-round sunny weather makes Oxnard an ideal venue for golf, biking, hiking and sightseeing. Pick your adventure and discover Oxnard's hidden treasures.
