Ventura, California (PRWEB) February 02, 2014
Ventura Harbor Village has a toasty antidote to frigid winter temperatures, and that’s to hang up the snow shovel, pack a bag with casual fall clothing and head west to thaw out under the Southern California sun. The new “Seaside Warmth Weekend Escape” at Ventura Harbor Village’s Four Points by Sheraton Ventura Harbor Resort is starting off the New Year with fair-weather rates in one of the warmest places in the nation. This is the perfect time of year to visit, with Ventura’s remarkably sunny weather, and glorious sunsets. And, Ventura is less than 30 minutes from Santa Barbara and is one hour from Los Angeles and California’s most popular attractions.
Now through April 2014, visitors can book the “Seaside Warmth Weekend Escape” on Friday and Saturday nights, priced at $119 per night, based on space availability (double occupancy) at Four Points by Sheraton Ventura Harbor Resort. The package can be booked directly through the resort’s reservations department by calling 805- 658-1212 x1290 (Package Code 4239). A possible two-night minimum stay may be required, depending upon dates of travel.
The activities and recreation at Ventura Harbor Village are endless, such as dining alfresco on a patio at one of Ventura Harbor’s seafood restaurants serving fresh, popular seafood dishes. Part of the thrill of visiting Ventura Harbor Village is taking Island Packers Gray Whale Watching cruise – Island Packers - in season January through early April, under the sun in temperatures in the upper 60s, 70s and 80s. Not an evening goes by that the news media don’t hype the gray whales that populate Southern California waters, and there’s no better place to see them than in the channel. Outdoor winter activities abound in the Harbor area. Spectacular sunsets, warm beaches, and outdoor dining, are perfect ways to celebrate the amazing “summer-like” weather of Ventura in winter! It’s some of the warmest weather in the country. Many areas are experiencing early spring bloom, and as the days progress, the Channel Islands will become brilliant with flora, and on the beaches of Ventura, visitors can observe the wonder of huge winter surf swells, then back in Ventura Harbor Village, the fabulous outdoor boutique shopping. Hats and sunshine are made for each other, and California’s hat headquarters, Hats Unlimited has one for every occasion. Then, pick up a kite at Harbor Wind & Kite on the Village’s promenade, and take it for a spin. The balmy weather with Ventura’s sundowner warm winds will take it soaring. Browse the quality art galleries, take in spring and surf fashions, then take a dive lesson from Ventura Dive & Sport as the water warms up for world-class diving near the Channel Islands.
Visitors can also catch a colorful sunset overlooking the destination’s several scenic beaches and take the family out kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, on a harbor cruise via electric boat, or on an Island Packers adventure to the Channel Islands. Back on shore, travelers can also enjoy a leisurely stroll through the more than 30 of Ventura Harbor Village’s shops, many featuring handcrafted and homemade items.
