The Resting Place
Port Hueneme (pronounced "Wy-nee'mee") is a charming, tranquil seaside community in Ventura County, California, located 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles and 40 miles south of Santa Barbara. The City's name derives from a Chumash word (Wene'mu) that means "resting place." The town is only four square miles in size, and is far enough from the main highways to attract few outside visitors. The population was 22,138 at the 2013 census.
