Ready for a ‘Staycation’?
With gas prices already soaring, an offshore vacation might seem out of the question. Why not consider a ‘staycation’ at the beautiful, tropical Ventura resort? Mandalay Beach provides that offshore experience right here in southern California. And, now there’s even more of an incentive to come and visit Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach with the ‘Gas Card Incentive’ package. It’s easy … Just book your stay at our seaside resort and you will receive a $10 gas card for each night you stay… Enjoy all that this Oxnard Hotel has to offer from the spacious two-room suites to the complimentary made-to-order breakfast each morning and evening complimentary drinks & snacks at the Manager’s Reception. The offer is valid all year long, so it’s time to get away and soak up the sun.
Kids Eat Free
Who said there is no free lunch? Well, maybe not lunch, but how about dinner? Families can take advantage of the ‘AAA Kids Eat Free’ Program just by showing your AAA card at check-in. This entitles guests to one free children’s meal with one paying adult at the award-winning Capistrano’s Restaurant. The program is available Sunday-Thursday during the dinner hours. Guests can order an adult entrée off of the dinner menu and receive one kid’s meal off the children’s menu free.
Whale Watching Season is still going strong and it’s time to celebrate with the 16th Annual Celebration of the Whales Festival scheduled for Sunday, March 18. The annual event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and features live entertainment, whale & marine education exhibits, arts & crafts market, children’s activities, BBQ and seafood booths and the weekly Farmers’ Market. The celebration is free and is a great way to learn about and enjoy the magnificent Pacific Gray Whales that grace our ocean floor every year. Whale watching excursions will also be running via Island Packers.
Put Your Green On!
Take part in a ‘Bit O’ the Irish’ this St. Patrick’s Day at Rancho Ventavo Cellars located in Heritage Square in downtown Oxnard. The local winery provides a magical evening of traditional Irish foods and music. The cost is just $10 for your first glass of wine and $5 each additional glass. Plus, it includes appetizers. Or, you can simply stay at the Ventura beach resort, dine at Capistrano’s Restaurant and enjoy a traditional favorite, Corned Beef & Cabbage!
Catch a Springtime Play
While visiting Heritage Square, you might catch the stage play, ‘Lilies of the Field’ playing now through April 1. The play is based on the funny, sentimental, charming and uplifting story of Homer Smith, an itinerant handyman who follows a journey of discovery.
If you are heading out to the islands, you might stop at Marine Emporium Landing in Channel Islands Harbor. It’s one stop shopping for everything you might need for an ocean adventure. At Marine Emporium Landing you will find sportfishing & kayaking outfitters, harbor rentals and information on harbor cruises and island excursions. There is even a deli so you can grab a boxed lunch while venturing out on the blue Pacific. Marine Emporium Landing also hosts the weekly Farmers’ Market taking place every Sunday.
