If you miss Oxnard, there's another detour 11 miles up on Seaward Avenue in Ventura. This is a good place to grab a cup of java and stretch your legs with a stroll on the beach. There's street parking and a small lot with clean restrooms and showers to rinse off the gritty stuff. If time permits, let the kids ride the carousel in nearby Ventura Harbor Village, or take a guided cruise around the harbor.
