What Bert Has To Say About Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura Metro Area


Ventura is a beach town along the original Pacific Coast Highway (U.S. 101). The inhabited portion of Ventura County also includes numerous towns including Oxnard, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks and Santa Paula. Aside from Ventura and its beaches, the area is a mix of agriculture, small industry, and residential areas.
