Oxnard is a city in Ventura County, on California's South Coast. Incorporated in 1903, Oxnard lies approximately 60 miles (97 km) west of downtown Los Angeles and is part of the larger Greater Los Angeles area.

It is at the western edge of the fertile Oxnard Plain, adjacent to an agricultural center of strawberries and lima beans. Oxnard is also a major transportation hub in Southern California, with AmtrakUnion PacificMetrolinkGreyhound, and Intercalifornias stopping there.


Port Hueneme is a small beach city in Ventura County surrounded by the city of Oxnard and Ventura and the Santa Barbara Channel.  The name derives from the Spanish spelling of the Ventureño phrase wene me, meaning "Resting Place". The town's name was officially changed to Port Hueneme in 1939 and was incorporated March 24, 1948. Both the commercial Port of Hueneme and the Navy Base lie within city limits.

Port Hueneme has a south-facing sand beach, known for its surfing.  The beach has a wooden fishing pier and is about a mile long between Ormond Beach downcoast and Point Hueneme Light at the harbor entrance shared by the naval base and the port. The Waterfront Promenade, also known as the Lighthouse Promenade, provides a paved public access along the shoreline with two historic sites, the 1872 Wharf and the Oxnard Packing House
