VENTURA, Calif (May 28, 2019) Visitors to Ventura Pier, California’s longest wooden pier, stroll its length on a clear, early summer morning. Built in 1972, the pier has been damaged by storms and reconstructed several times, most recently in 1993. (Photo: © 2019 Greg Vojtko/All Rights Reserved)

On Tuesday, after the Memorial Day weekend, I went for a short road Trip to Ventura. I’d driven through the town, en route to Santa Barbara and points north a gazillion times, but never stopped. After a brief walk on California’s longest wooden pier I enjoyed lunch at Beach House Tacos, rumored to serve the best fish tacos anywhere. I can confirm the rumors are true.
