Oxnard offers lower-cost beach getaway
The name "Oxnard" doesn't quite roll off the tongue like Catalina, La Jolla or Coronado, but the city named Oxnard does lay claim to some of the state's most wide open, accessible beaches and a whole host of nearby attractions that make it definitely worth considering as base camp for your next beach getaway in the Golden State.

Even though this part of Southern California boasts lots of sun, sand and scenery, the prices for your Oxnard getaway are likely to be a little less than more famous beach communities. And in today's economic climate, that becomes a major consideration for many families who don't want to entirely forego their getaways, but also want to be prudent about costs. Driving about 60 miles northwest of L.A. helps lower those costs.
