OXNARD, CALIFORNIA-- For years I've been telling people about my love of Oxnard. From electric boat rentals to stand-up paddleboarding, from whale watching to fine dining, Oxnard is one of those destinations we sometimes overlook in our rush to get to better-known locales.

Visit Oxnard is playing on that exact theme with their new tourism campaign: "You Don't Know Oxnard."

What you probably don't know

Here's a list of things to do in the area:

  • Boarding an authentic Venetian gondola at Seabridge Marina
  • Enjoying a locally-brewed beer at Red Tandem Brewery in Oxnard Shores
  • Savoring delicious tacos from Tacos La Bonita in Downtown Oxnard
  • Stepping into the ring at one of the city's champion-producing boxing gyms
  • Catching a wave at one of Oxnard's many beaches
  • Adventuring to the Channel Islands National Park, where you can see the indigenous diurnal island fox
  • Taking in the local ballet Folklorico performances
  • Touring the world headquarters of the famed DW Drums
  • Sailing through the Channel Islands Harbor
  • Checking out classic and exotic automobiles at the city's automotive museums
  • Meeting your match at the volleyball nets on historic Hollywood Beach

Plus loads of:

  • Kayaking
  • Bicycling
  • Camping
  • Fishing
  • Hiking
  • Shopping
  • Scenic driving
  • Beach sitting
  • Surfing
  • Bird watching
  • Wine tasting
  • And eating

A positive outlook for the summer

Despite losses due to Covid-19 business closures and community lockdowns, Oxnard, along with the state of California, is well-positioned for recovery. The California travel industry's underlying strength and enduring selflessness and resilience align with California Tourism Month's theme, the “Power of Possibility.”

The long-term outlook for California has brightened. Tourism Economics projects domestic visitor spending in California will reach 76% of 2019 levels this year. In 2022, domestic spending will hit 94% of 2019 levels, and total visitor spending, including resurgent international travel, will hit 87%.

The Golden State remains among the best-performing states in case counts and vaccination rates and has implemented long-term health measures so visitors can feel safe.

The outlook for summer travel in California is very positive, as the state expects to remove most restrictions by June 15 – just before summer officially arrives.
