Every summer they have a great line up of bands. You can bring your own picnic meal and reserve tables . This is a great outdoor venue for music.

I was expecting more. I know it is old, but the grounds had no landscaping whatsoever, just dirt. Could see in past photos there used to be a lawn and gardens...not now.

Great concerts, bring your own picnic food and drinks or purchase onsite under the stars every Saturday from mid July to Labor Day weekend. Very reasonable prices.

A visit here allows you to step back in time and learn something about the history of the region and one of its first families. It's near the Channel Islands Natl. Park Visitors Center, so we visited both in one morning.

I've been to Olivas Adobe before, but decided to take the family. The buildings themselves are closed Monday-Friday, but you can walk in and around them, and peer in the windows, for free. There are some signs that are informative, but could and should be...More

This is definitely a place to visit - if you want to see what Old California was like. Check to see if one of their special events or evening concerts will be occurring while you're in the area. Fun! They also have inter-active hands-on displays...More

I really enjoy this quaint place. It's a nice, peaceful stroll around the grounds but the ROSE GARDEN, that's amazing! I've never seen such a huge variety in one place and they are absolutely spectacular!
