To learn about the history of Oxnard, head to Heritage Square. The district was created in 1991 and currently displays historic structures that were restored and relocated. The houses that stand in district were originally farm houses, when the district was full of life in the 1920s.
People would work on their farms all day, but let loose a little bit on the weekends. Visiting friends, getting dressed up and drinking tea were all part of their routines. You and your family can join in on the same type of fun by drinking tea at La Dolce Vita Ristorante. The square is open daily and guided tours are held on the weekends.
If you’re looking for a little friendly family competition, pay a visit to the River Ridge Golf Course. River Ridge has a beautiful 18 hole golf course, as well as an 18 hole FootGolf course as well.
FootGolf is a sport that combines both soccer and golf. The purpose of the game is to kick a soccer ball into the hole in the least number of kicks. For a unique way to get around the golf course, try out a surf cart.
While you’re riding the cart, take a moment to enjoy the beautiful Oxnard scenery that the course has to offer. Looking to sit down and relax with a glass of wine? The tasting room at River Ridge is perfect for that too!
To learn all about the maritime version of the history of Oxnard, drop by the Channel Islands Maritime Museum. Here, you can explore five centuries of maritime art, intricate ship models, and artifacts from shipwrecks. Kids can learn to tie a proper nautical knot and imagine themselves commandeering the ships. The museum is extremely interactive and a great place to bring the entire family!
