Ventura: One of the nicest, affordable beach cities in Southern California

I just got back from playing a tennis tournament in Ventura, California at the Pierpont Racquet Club.

I love playing there because the temperature there is always about 20 degrees cooler than L.A. County because it is a beach city.  The air is so crisp, clean and full of negative ions that you just want to live there.

We looked at some of the homes in the Ventura Keys, which is a really nice neighborhood, and were surprised to see that they averaged in the $600k range.

If you're looking for an affordable beach city that has definite charm, then you need to check out Ventura.  Last night we spent some time at the harbor.  It's a great night-life place with fantastic restaurants and shops.  And the marina is just wonderful.

Here are a couple of websites that show what Ventura is all about:
