In Ventura County, you can camp right on the beach, hike in the mountains to secret waterfalls and swimming holes, explore vast outdoor malls, or even peruse a presidential library. Ventura County is perfectly situated to take advantage of everything awesome in California. Its miles of coastline and vast mountain ranges may feel miles away from the city, but Los Angeles is less than a 2-hour drive from almost anywhere in VC.
