“Lots of great travel info about California. A wine tasting bar with bottles to buy that can be used in local restaurants without corkage fee. 
Great selection of California souvenirs.”

“The best visitor’s center I’ve visited. Very friendly and informative staff. The staff listened and learned about our interests before making recommendations. They really know the area well. They went the extra mile in terms of calling places they were recommending to make sure open, what shows playing etc. And the “Ventura Wine Trail” wine bar was fun to try out!”

“I have been to the center a few times. The reference materials are extensive and there are nice things to buy as gifts or mementos. I have been to a couple of the wine tasting evenings, which were very enjoyable and well run. This also introduced me to a couple of local wineries I knew nothing about. Staff friendly & professional.”

“What a great way to welcome visitors to Ventura county. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. The wine tasting was an experience like no other. Highly recommend it.”

“Great place to stop in and see, a wealth of information at your fingertips and locations to visit. They even have a wine tasting room of local wineries in Ventura and great merchandise. Located in a shopping center with great restaurants and shops.”

“The Welcome Center is located in The Collection. We stopped in there after a movie (Riverpark 16 is right there) on a whim. What a nice surprise to find all the items they have to offer: from maps and brochures of everything in Ventura County plus other counties to t-shirts and magnets. They also have a wine tasting corner (!) and will put together a wine basket as a gift!! Sweet!”
