Ventura is a city that follows a portion of the Santa Paula Freeway. It's located just north of Wheelhouse's dispensary in Oxnard. The area has been voted one of the most desirable to live in, and us at Wheelhouse certainly see why. Currently, the city has 110,000 residents, making it the 61st largest city in California. It's no surprise it's so large -- Ventura has been widely inhabited for over 10,000 years. Its population density is much larger than average, but the city still contains sprawling, open green spaces and its own beach. We love the residents of Ventura, and they love Wheelhouse too!

Wheelhouse loves Ventura. It's why we're located here! One look at the city will explain its allure. Considered one of America's most desirable places to live, the coastal community has year-round good weather, friendly locals, and stunning scenery. Residents love getting outside, as seen by the number of outdoorsy brands headquartered here, huge population of soccer players, and prevalence of surfers. With open beaches and nearby Channel Islands, we can't blame them. Located between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, Ventura is all the style of L.A. with all the laid back vibes of S.B., which explains how Wheelhouse fits in oh-so perfectly.
It almost goes without saying that Ventura is beautiful. This scenic area is composed of an impressive park system, including 32 parks and historic sites and more than 800 acres of open green space.
Living close to the beach has its perks, and Ventura's Surfers' Point proves that. Located in Seaside Park, this part of the ocean has right hand waves that roll in constantly. Surfers ride these waves towards the Ventura City Pier.
Ventura's rich history goes far back, and there's evidence of people having lived there for at least 10,000 years. The city is especially diverse, and there's significant cultural influences from the Chumash, Spaniards, Europeans, Chinese, and more.
Did you know that gluten-free flour started here?
Gluten-free is a huge dietary trend that's been exponentially growing in popularity. For those with celiac disease, a gluten-free diet is necessary. For others, they may engage in a gluten-free diet for health benefits. While gluten-free options are frequently served now, it didn't start that way. Who pioneered it all? Ventura! Ventura was the first place in the world to grow and produce lima beans outside of their native region, Peru.
In the 1920s, a baker by the name of William Baker (legally changed from William Koch, which means "cook" in German) began working at a Ventura bakery. Finding his passion in baking, he later opened his own Bill Baker Bakery in Ojai, just north of Ventura. It was here that he perfected wheat-less flours. He combined lima beans, grown in Ventura, with soy products. Mr. Baker sold everything from bread to pastries with his innovative flour, and it was marketed as a health food far before the trend evolved to what it is today.
