The Ventura Avenue
Nestled between the Ventura River, the Pacific Ocean and Ventura hills, The Westside of Ventura, also known as “The Avenue”, has a rich history that’s reflected in the mosaic of diverse residents, businesses, and eclectic interests in this vibrant community.
The seeds of our city were planted here, with its history rooted in its Chumash ancestors, the historic Tortilla Flats memoirs, and the oil boom of the late early 1900s. As the gold rush began to fade, thousands of people, looking for work came to the Ventura Basin. It was here where several major oil companies were formed. Many of Ventura’s pioneer families settled on the Westside as they helped build our great city. They cultivated citrus, walnut, and apricot orchards. They created charming abodes in places like the Simpson Tract, the city’s first historic housing tract.
Many of the homes in this area date back to the early 1900’s. This region of the city has also been “up and coming” for many years, and continues to evolve. Home prices tend to be lower in this area than in other regions of the City, and with the close proximity to the ocean, cute historic bungalows and authentic Mexican food – the secret is out about the Ventura Avenue and the demand continues to grow.
