Scrapbooking in Camarillo, California
By:Audrey Okaneko

The Camarillo area offers many tourist attractions, great for creating a scrapbook of your stay in Ventura County.

The Camarillo Ranch House was built in 1892. The House has been renovated to preserve the property as a cultural, educational and event center. The most notable structure on the Ranch is the large, white Victorian Camarillo House. The 4 1/2 acre Ranch also includes a large red barn, a stable and tack room.

The Pleasant Valley Historical Museum and Botanical Garden offer beautiful plants and trees in a park- like setting.

In nearby Oxnard, you'll want to visit The Murphy Auto Museum. It's a must see for those who enjoy cars. They have over sixty autos on display, including antiques, early classics, street rods and a large collection of Packards.

If you have children, plan to visit Ventura County Gull Wings Children's Museum. There are over 20 hands-on exhibits, a costume area, a moon room and a space center.

In Ventura, you'll find Lake Casitas Recreational Park which features camping, boating, fishing, family water park & picnicking. At the Ventura County Museum of History and Art, you'll find activities and events for both children and adults.

If you're looking for a local scrapbook store, stop by Scrap It, in Camarillo, Scrapbook Highway in Oxnard or Scrapbookers Villa in Ventura. All 3 stores can help you find the supplies you're looking for to create your scrapbook of your visit to the central California coast.

If you'd like to venture a bit further, consider the Channel Islands National Park, where you're invited to hike, camp, snorkel, kayak, bird watch, or just relax.
