Ventura Bay is a fictional California city that is the open world setting of Need for Speed (2015). The in-game accessible area is divided into six major districts, each with their own sub-districts and landmarks.
The district is divided by a canal, with the sub-districts of Beckenholl and Shoreline Front to the east, and Los Sol and Cross Roads to the west. Amy's garage is located here, in the northern end of Shoreline Front next to the Los Sol Bridge.
Landmarks include the aforementioned Los Sol Bridge crossing over the canal and the EYEKA shopping complex in Beckenholl. In addition, a small island used as an interchange is located in the city's bay just southwest of Cross Roads.
It is also the only district without any live-action storyline locations affiliated with any of Travis' crew. It is divided between Buck Foothills to the south, Weid Canyon to the north, and Granite Spring in between them.
Landmarks include the Buck Foothills View, Crescent Mountains Bridge, Granite Spring Monument, and the Weid Canyon Dam.
Landmarks include Ghost Stadium in Millennium Plaza, Arcadia Park, the Esplanade Church, and the Lone Palm Village Mall, also in East Esplanade.
Manu controls a warehouse he calls "The Bunker" in Navy Pier. Landmarks include the VB Petrochemical Plant between Navy Pier and San Pedro Transfer, and the oddly-placed Ventura Bay Art Centre on the island's northern peninsula.
It is divided between two districts; Harbor View to the northeast and Apollo Heights to the southwest. Each of these two sub-districts have sub-districts of their own. Harbor View has the Morphus Complex and the Harbor View Mall shopping centre, while Apollo Heights has BBA Industries alongside the main area of the sub-district. Spike and the rest of the crew frequent a bar and eatery in Harbor View called The Longhorn, where they drink and play billiards.
The El Rey Pier, where Robyn's trailer can be found in a warehouse, is on the northwest shore of the district. Landmarks include the El Rey Monument towards the south of Sinner's Peak, Sinner's Peak Observatory, and Castle Hill Falls, though the latter two landmarks are actually located in the Reserve.
