Ventura, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2010
An eclectic mix of music and art come to life in Ventura’s Downtown Cultural District during the Ventura ArtWalk held April 17-18, 2010, and the Ventura Beach Marriott hotel has just the hotel getaway packages to help guests enjoy it even more.
A day of gallery hopping is naturally paired with an afternoon of wine tasting. The hotel’s ‘Ventura County Wine Trail Getaway’ allows the artistic-minded guest to experience warm hospitality from four of Ventura County’s award-winning wineries, sample their creations and indulge in a gourmet snack box. If an active adventure is on the agenda, the ‘Island Adventure Landing’ package includes a guided tour of nearby Channel Islands National park where visitors can observe seals, sea lions and other wildlife. Both packages can be booked online and are subject to availability.
The ArtWalk is a free, two-day walking tour through more than 80 galleries and studios featuring hundreds of artists – established and emerging – in Ventura’s Downtown Cultural District. This bi-annual event is less than two miles from the Ventura Beach Marriott hotel and just steps from the beach and Ventura Pier. Participating venues also include local restaurants, salons, boutiques and coffee shops. Catch live outdoor performances both days, and take advantage of a free ArtWalk shuttle bus that transfers attendees to outlying locations.
For a great weekend escape from the city, a visit to famed Ventura Beach and a chance to absorb the best of the Ventura ArtWalk 2010, Los Angeles visitors should choose the Ventura Beach Marriott.
