Most Expensive Ventura Neighborhoods
Ventura is a larger medium-sized coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 109,484 people and 27 constituent neighborhoods, Ventura is the 56th largest community in California.
Housing costs in Ventura are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in California.
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Ventura is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Ventura is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Ventura who work in office and administrative support (12.70%), sales jobs (11.63%) and management occupations (10.93%).
Also of interest is that Ventura has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One thing noticeable about Ventura, although not a huge city, is that it has a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. That’s because Ventura is full of single people in their 20s and 30s and who have undergraduate or graduate degrees and are starting careers in professional occupations. This makes Ventura a pretty good place for young, educated career starters looking to find many people like themselves, with good opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
Ventura is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
The overall education level of Ventura citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 33.61% of adults in Ventura have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.
The per capita income in Ventura in 2010 was $33,180, which is upper middle income relative to California, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $132,720 for a family of four. However, Ventura contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
Ventura is a somewhat ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Ventura home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Ventura residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Ventura also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race). People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 32.68% of the city’s residents. Important ancestries of people in Ventura include German, English, Irish, Italian, French and Scottish.
The most common language spoken in Ventura is English. Some people also speak Spanish.
