    Oxnard: Find Your Close-to-the-Beach Stay
    Visit Ventura
    Hello there, Pacific: The Embassy Suites by Hilton Mandalay Beach Resort sits near Channel Islands Harbor and a bevy of beautiful beaches.

    HOLDING TIGHTLY ONTO SUMMER? It's possible to make it all last, though the final days of August do seem to slide through the fingers with the ease of so many foamy ocean bubbles. One day it is springtime, and we're talking about all of the summer road trips we'd like to take, and then, we see it: Halloween candy filling the shelves at our local supermarket. But the beaches of Southern California have a pretty consistent and commendable way of sticking around throughout the calendar, whether it is summertime or not, and making your way to one is possible regardless of season. September and October, in fact, are fine months to beach it up, thanks to the continuing warm weather and the thinning of crowds (well, it is California, where places bustle all year, but, come fall, travel does wind down a touch). Embassy Suites by Hilton Mandalay Beach Resort happens to have a front row seat to some blissful beachery, and it is close to Channel Islands Harbor, too, in case you want to hop a boat out to Channel Islands National Park. There are...

    "250 NEWLY RENOVATED ROOMS"... at the expansive property, a spread that includes an ample amount of ocean-front beauty (the resort sits on eight-and-a-half acres). As for the hotel's line-up of packages? There are deals designed for family trips, for getawayers looking for a long weekend, and a military family rate, too. As for finding your perfect area beach? Oxnard has a multitude, from ocean-y areas perfect for kayaking to places made for a soak-in-the-sun picnic. The summer of '17 isn't done, not at all, and balmy days will balmy-on for at least four or five more weeks, though maybe more. If you didn't get your beach time in over the last couple of months, make a night or weekend of it, at a property that's so sand-adjacent it is nearly sitting in the surf.
