Oxnard vacation rentals, found in the largest city in Ventura County, are a great way to spend your southern California getaway. Perhaps best known for its Pacific beaches, Oxnard is home to over 20 miles of scenic, peaceful coastline. There are even sand dunes near the Oxnard coast, which has been the setting for many desert recreations in Hollywood movies. These large, expansive beaches, like Mugu Rock State Beach, Ormond Beach, Hueneme Beach, Silver Strand Beach, Hollywood Beach, Oxnard State Beach, and McGrath State Beach all have soft sand and some are world-famous for great surfing opportunities. Surfing legend Tim Curran even lives in Oxnard, and can often be seen honing his skills near the various beaches.
The climate in Oxnard is often described as being Mediterranean, with warm, mild winters and summers that are cooler than average. With an abundance of sunshine as well, the area has proven vital for various agricultural pursuits, and Oxnard holds the honor being both the strawberry and lima bean production capital of the world. Additionally, the area is very rich culturally, boasting a plethora of museums and art galleries, such as the Carnegie Art Museum, the Chandler Vintage Museum of Transportation and Wildlife, and Heritage Square, an area with many examples of Victorian and Craftsman houses once owned by pioneers.
