5 Reasons You Shouldn’t Move to Ventura, CA

REASON #1: The Weather is Terrible

It’s always so sunny and breezy.  Booooring.  I mean, could we get a blizzard or something once in a while? Hail? Anything besides a steady 75 degrees??

REASON #2: It Has Way Too Much Character

Everyone knows a good city should be bland, characterless and full of big box stores.  I keep walking around Main Street looking for the Wal-Mart but all I can find are boutiques and artisan shops!

I had to walk through a bookcase to get into a bar. What happened to good old fashioned doors?

REASON #3: It’s Entirely Too Fertile Here

Who actually wants to pick an avocado straight off a tree? I prefer the convenience of buying mine at a grocery store.  They taste better after being shipped a couple thousand miles, amiright?

REASON #4: There’s Nothing to Do

What is there to do after you’ve laid on the beach, taken a boat out, explored the Channel Islands, paddle boarded in the bay, walked around the harbor, watched fireworks on the shoreline, picked strawberries at a farm, visited the wineries and explored the cool bar behind the bookcase? Doesn’t anyone have a looming deadline around here? No one is rushing from place to place and there isn’t even any traffic to sit in!

REASON #5: There Aren’t Enough Bugs

Don’t you sometimes just crave a good mosquito bite?

    1. Thanks Katie! It’s forecast to be 109 degrees in Austin on Monday – hope you’re enjoying your boring 75 degrees. ;D
