Ventura lies between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara along U.S. Route 101, which was one of the original U.S. Routes.

During the post–World War II economic expansion, the community grew easterly, building detached single-family homes over the rich agricultural land created by the Santa Clara River at the edge of the Oxnard Plain.
