About Ventura County

How to Beat a Ventura County Traffic Ticket

Ventura County was originally inhabited by the Chumash people. In October of 1542, an expedition lead by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo anchored in an inlet near Point Mugu and explored the area that would become Ventura County. Over 200 years later, in March of 1782, the Mission San Buenaventura was founded by Father Junipero Serra. Yet, the area remains largely unchanged through the Mexican-American War and when California was formally transferred to the United States in 1848. Created from a part of Santa Barbara County, Ventura County was formed in 1873.

Devastation struck Ventura County in early March of 1928 when the St. Francis Dam collapsed, sending 12.5 billion gallons of water through the Santa Clarita Valley, killing as many as 600 people, destroying over 1200 homes and flooding nearly 8,000 acres of land. The collapse of the St. Francis Dam is the second-greatest disaster in California history in terms of loss of life, the first being the San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906.

The county has a total area of 2,208 square miles, 365 square miles of which are water. Most of Ventura County’s 854,200 people live in the southern portion of the county in the cities of Oxnard, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Ventura (San Buenaventura), and Camarillo. According to the USDA Economic Research Service, Ventura County is one of the most desirable counties to live in within the 48 contiguous states, using six metrics of climate, topographic variation, and access to water as some of the variables.  Several of the communities in Ventura County are also deemed to be some of the safest communities in the U.S., including Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Newbury Park, and Moorpark. Crime in Ventura County is 33% lower than the rest of California.
