My daughter is in Pt Hueme, with a graduation date in October. Are family members invited and/or encouraged to attend? We took the family to Newport after OCS, but living in PA it was a 6 hour car ride. My husband and I were hoping to attend since we planned to visit before she starts her official tour in San Diego.
Also, any recommendations where to stay?
We have stayed in Pt Hueneme a couple times to visit our son. The first time we stayed at Embassy Suites, Mandalay, near the base. It is very nice. This last time we stayed in Ventura at a Four Points Sheraton. It was nice too. Not as close to the beach as the Embassy Suites.
The Holiday Inn in Ventura has a nice view of the marina. We noticed when we stayed.
We didn't see a lot besides the Embassy Suites that was close to base and nice.
There is Navy Lodging on base. Your daughter might be able to help you check that out.
I hope you have a good time.
