Smart shoppers can save money and help Santa Paula Police Explorers Post 2350 at the same time with the purchase of a chock-full-of-bargains Ventura Axxess card.

For only $30 the card offers plenty of two-for-one restaurant offers, other fine dining and wine tasting opportunities, merchant discounts, automotive and pet services as well as tons of fun entertainment throughout the county and beyond!

Special discounts are offered on theme parks, zoos and museums throughout Southern California from the Aquarium of the Pacific, California Academy of Sciences, Gilroy Gardens Theme Park, Knott’s Berry Farm (and Soak City) to the LEGOLAND California Resort, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Museum of Ventura County, San Diego Zoo & Safari Park, SeaWorld San Diego, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, Six Flags Magic Mountain and Universal Studios.

The deals are great but you’ll have even more money in your pocket when you use the Axxess card for two-for-one dining at a variety of restaurants: start close to home at The Mupu Grill and El Pescador and then branch out to the more than 115 other fine restaurants where you can use your card!

From the 805 Bar & Grilled Cheese and Baja Fresh to Bandit’s Grill & Bar to Basil & Mint Vietnamese Café the two-for-one restaurant specials offer an affordable night out on the town dining on Indian, Cuban, Mexican, Chinese, Italian and Cajun food, steaks at The Sportsman, old fashioned American favorites at Country Harvest Restaurant, fish at Spencer McKenzie’s and Chuy’s Killer Chicken. You can stop at Bonnie Lu’s Country Café, Dayne’s Chicago Beef & Dawgs, El Tecolote Mexican Restaurant, Four Brix Winery and Gandolfo’s New York Delicatessen or, if you’re in the mood for sushi check out Hakane Sushi & Grill. 

Food traveling can include Himalaya Cuisine of Nepal, India & Tibet or some fine German noshing at Jeanette’s Edelweiss followed by sweets at Kona Ice or Nothing But Bundt Cakes.

Whether in the mood for Peirano’s Restaurant or Pick Up Stix, Sabores Peruvian Café or Safire American Bistro the best part of using your Axxess card, other than the great food of course, is that it can pay for itself with the first use!

From Swirl Frozen Yogurt and Tacos Don Chente to the Tilted Kilt and Toki Japanese Noodle House, the Axxess card is a wonderful reason to try that place you always wanted to stop at, even the Watermark Restaurant & W2O overlooking downtown Ventura.

You’ll be having so much fun you might forget that it’s all for a great cause — the community based policing program, the SPPD Police Explorers, youth 14 to 21 years old that receive training to help police as well as help at and patrol special events. Being an Explorer allows a youth to foster their interest in a law enforcement career and encourages and guides young adults to take a better path for the future.

SPPD Explorers are specifically raising funds for a 2016 national Explorers competition in Chandler, AZ where they’ll show off their skills in policing, the same challenges faced by sworn officers. 

Axxess cards — only $30 each! — are available from Explorers or at the Santa Paula Police Station, 214 S. 10th St.
