From some of America’s largest suburban parks, horseback-riding in National Park-lands, dolphin-watching cruises and the largest presidential library in America, Ventura County has lots to offer locals and tourists visiting the area. Even more so for people traveling by a limo service. Whether you’re looking for wine tours in the evening or enjoying a beach bar in the sun, combine your outing with limousine services for a day to remember! These are some of our most popular destinations, even often ordered for LAX airport sedan rides from the airport. Without further due, these are our picks for best things to do in Ventura County!

7. Wine-Tasting Tours

Although most wine tours go to the Malibu Canyon, Santa Barbara and Temecula, Ventura County also has a few beautiful spots for a wine-tasting tour. The Ojai wine country isn’t just beautiful, but also plentiful and different from most wine-tasting sceneries. There are a huge number of wine-tasting venues in town, but our limousine services represent some of the most visited on our wine tours. “Downtown’s” Casa Barranca Winery is a popular choice, with wines made in Ojai only. For beautiful outdoor tastings, many limo service travelers decide on the Majestic Oak Wine-Tasting Room with its nice outdoor balcony area. For the best scenery, head to Topa Mountain Winery and check out their gorgeous view and locally made wine varietals. Many limo service riders love the wine- and food matching at The Vine. For more popular wine tour destinations, contact us about Malibu- and Santa Ynez wine tour options. We often have international tourists using an LAX airport sedan to get here, right after they get into town! Here you can enjoy the rolling green hills of untouched nature in the Santa Barbara wine country, or enjoy a nice evening of wine-sipping and live entertainment on a wine tour to Malibu.

Cornell Winery is a frequent stop on Malibu wine tours.


6. Wildwood Regional Park

One of the deciding factors for why Washington Post named Ventura County “the best U.S. county to live in”, Wildwood Regional Park is one of America’s largest suburban parks. As a reporter from LA Times wrote: “It is highly unusual to find such a large nature park in the backyard to one of America’s largest cities.” Here you can find a varied fauna and flora, nearly 30 miles of hiking trails and beautiful nature reminding visitors how California once used to look like. Some of the animal life here includes mountain lions, deer, coyotes, hawks, snakes and even the threatened Pond turtle. Thousand Oaks party bus and limo clients start their trails either in Thousand Oaks or in nearby communities such as Moorpark, Newbury Park or Santa Rosa Valley, CA. While trails from Santa Rosa County Park starts by climbing the Mountclef Ridge, trails from Newbury Park follows La Branca and the Arroyo Conejo Creek until reaching Hill Canyon and later entering Wildwood. Come here for great hikes, horseback-riding, mountain biking or other recreational activities. There are also many students from California Lutheran University (CLU) venturing out here for a day of study in the peaceful surroundings. Many Thousand Oaks party bus- and other limo service clients don’t realize Wildwood is a movie tour mecca. Being the location of the former Janss Conejo Ranch, over 50 movies and TV series were filmed in Wildwood! Just a few of the television series filmed here are Bonanza (1959-1973) and The Rifleman (1958-1963). Some of the movies filmed here include Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier (1955), Lassie Come Home (1943), Dodge City (1939), Spartacus (1960), and many more. So tours to Wildwood are popular for a variety of reasons. We have even had LAX airport sedan customers flying in to LAX and going on a cinematic tour of Ventura County. There’s lots to explore!

5. Horseback-Riding in the Mountains

A beloved point of disembarkation for our limousine services are the gorgeous Santa Monica Mountains in southern Newbury Park. Here you can rent a horse at the Rocking K Horse Rentals for an unforgettable day of horseback-riding in the mountains! Bring sunscreen, your camera and riding pants for a truly memorable day of fun climbing the mountains on the horseback and experience one of the few National Park lands found here in the county. Nearly a thousand acres of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA) is situated within southern parts of the Greater Thousand Oaks Area. Besides horseback-riding, a visit to the Santa Monica’s Satwiwa Native American Indian Culture Center is a must. At Satwiwa and nearby Rancho Sierra Vista you can learn more about the Chumash people that once inhabited Thousand Oaks and nearby areas for as long as 10,000 years ago. Boney Peak is also located in the nearby area and is a holy mountain for the Chumash and one of the highest mountain peaks in the Thousand Oaks area. Further up in the Santa Monica Mountains is where we find SIP Malibu Grapes, Malibu Family Wines, Cornell Winery and other popular places for wine-tasting tours in Southern California.

4. Silver Strand Beach

Whether by LAX airport sedan, limousine, SUV or party bus, Silver Strand Beach in Oxnard is a popular place of visit of locals and tourists. Here you can spend the day being lazy at the beach, rent a bike at sundown and bike up the many beach cafés, restaurants and bars for a drink or dinner at evening. The local Beachcomber Tavern is a popular stop for our and other limo service companies in the area. Just steps away from the sandy beach, enjoy a cocktail here before or after enjoying a day at the beach. Renting a bike to explore the beautiful neighborhood streets, local shops and eateries can make for a day of a lot of fun! Our Thousand Oaks party bus facilities have often party bus vehicles heading out to Silver Strand.



3. Ronald Reagan Library & Museum

Being the largest and maybe most exclusive of the United States presidential libraries, you don’t have to be a die-hard Reagan fan to enjoy a visit to the Reagan Library & Museum. Located in Simi Valley, CA, the library might be the most popular tourist landing place in Simi Valley for LAX airport sedan companies and party bus rentals. At over 150,000 sq. ft., the library features tours of the Air Force One which hangs in the library and parts of the Berlin Wall are located here. There are also many famous exhibits that take place here. Recently we transferred with limousine services here to see the unique Batmobile and other vehicles on display. As Ronald Reagan was the 40th U.S. president, the library’s address is 40 Presidential Drive in western Simi Valley, just a minute away from the Thousand Oaks city limits. The library is the second-most visited presidential library in America with over 300,000 visitors per year. Another temporary exhibit here was the over eighty Nancy Reagan dresses displayed here in 2008. Make also sure to make a stop by the grave-place of Nancy- and Ronald Reagan on the outside of the library. From transporting international tourists and politicians for the primary debates that were hosted here, our Thousand Oaks party bus and limo services transfer clientele here on a weekly basis.



2. Island Packers Tours

Island Packers in Ventura offers great whale (and dolphin) watching cruises in Santa Barbara Channel and amazing adventures to the Channel Islands National Park. On their whale-watching tours you can enjoy seeing animals such as porpoises, dolphins, gray whales, seals and lots of other sea creatures. Of their island tours you can choose between various islands such as Anacapa-, Santa Cruz-, Santa Rosa- and San Miguel Islands. This is the place to experience how Southern California once looked like - undeveloped, naturally beautiful and with a blooming flora and fauna. The largest island in California, Santa Cruz Island, has been named “North America’s Galapagos” for its many species of animals and plants found nowhere else on Earth! Bring your hiking shoes for a hike on the Channel Island of your choice or a jacket for a day at sea for some great opportunities for wildlife viewing on the Pacific Ocean. Party bus- and limousine customers love visiting the Channel Islands and some even bring their tents along to camp on the islands. Did you know a woman lived in solitary on the San Nicolas Island for eighteen years!? Juana Maria, nicknamed the Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island, might be most known for being featured in the novel Island of the Blue Dolphins (1960) and later the movie of the same name. Tours to the Channel Islands are so popular they’ve at times even competed with wine tours. They’re in fact becoming so sought-after that the harbors for ferries to Catalina and the National Park have become LAX airport destinations for clients flying into LA.
