No time to dally at your Oxnard accommodation. Start your day at Heritage Square where you can see original and replicated historical buildings. Keep the culture coming at the Carnegie Art Museum, where you can enjoy California artwork and new exhibitions.
Okay, serious stuff done. Now for some fun. Head for one of Oxnard’s best-kept secrets: its 32 kilometres of beaches! The sand is soft, and there’s plenty of space to stretch out. Next, get your water shoes ready and head to Channel Islands Harbor for a deep sea fishing trip, a whale watching excursion or a ferry ride to Channel Islands National Park.
There’s no better time to plan Oxnard holidays than the third week of May, when you’ll have the pleasure of attending the town’s signature California Strawberry Festival. You’ll be “berry” sorry if you miss it!
Oxnard is home to the small regional Oxnard Airport (OXR), but you can also fly into Los Angeles or Santa Barbara and take Highway 101 into town. For a more scenic trip, drive up the Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1), which winds down the coast. You can also get to Oxnard and hotels in Oxnard using the Amtrak or Metrolink railways.
Even if you’ve made holiday plans for Los Angeles and booked Los Angeles accommodation, a day trip to strawberry-tastic Oxnard is a great way to take a break from the big city. Wotif will hook you up with the best deals on Oxnard hotels, so you have even more to spend on strawberry-themed souvenirs!
Hotels in Oxnard start at AU$113 per night. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
