Ventura is located in southwestern California. In 1782 Father Junipero Serra founded the Mission San Buenaventura, which in English translates to "good fortune." After the Civil War settlers began to move out west to places such as Ventura. However, due to the fact that it is not easily accessible, the rural city remained fairly isolated from the rest of the state. Today Ventura has some of the best surfing in southern California and has been featured in several movies including Swordfish, Little Miss Sunshine, Chinatown, Erin Brockovich, The Aviator and The Rock.
