Above the U.S. National Average.
Naval Base Ventura County encompasses two separate geographical locations about 10 miles apart. Some services are provided on both bases and some are only available at Point Mugu or Port Hueneme (i.e. gas stations on both bases but only one commissary at Port Hueneme). Asking questions and planning ahead are the best methods to ensure you make the right decisions concerning housing particularly, if you have family members.
Having a personal vehicle is crucial. There is no shuttle on or between the two bases and community transportation is limited.
