Just 11 miles offshore, yet worlds apart, the Channel Islands National Park is an all-natural playground for those interested in hiking, camping, diving, kayaking and nature walks. The Channel Islands National Park encompasses five remarkable islands - Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, San Miguel, and Santa Barbara - and their ocean environment. Isolation over thousands of years has created unique animals, plants, and archeological resources found nowhere else on Earth.
Oxnard's coastal setting, and accessible beaches and parks are ideal for outdoor activities. Rent an electric boat or kayak and explore Channel Islands Harbor waterways. Enjoy a round of golf at River Ridge Golf Club. Visit local farm stands or the weekly farmers markets. And if you dare … learn to race or do some laps at Jim Hall Kart Racing School, the most renowned school of its kind in America!
