Located in Ventura County, and minutes from the coastline, Ojai is a one main street town surrounded
by beautiful rolling hills covered in lush green foliage.
This was my second trip to Ojai where I found
the town to be just as charming, and full of new surprises.
hip and trendy, Ojai has become a tourist destination without the usual fanfare.
Visitors will not find a t-shirt shop, big box stores or fast food restaurants. However guests
family owned business's that range from fine dining,
boutique clothing stores, art galleries,
a candy store and
of course an ice cream parlor.
Located on the main street is the Oaks at Ojai, this is where
I stayed. With a focus on health and well being
this is one
place guests want to get on the scale after a day of delicious low calorie fare, lounging by the pool,
fitness classes and lectures...a wonderful experience, no pressure, do as you please.
I dined at several
places including the celebrity studded Ranch House, delicious.
For things to do, a must is Bart's Books, I promise you have never
seen a used book store such as this. Offering about
amazing. Take comfy shoes for walking up and down main street, enjoy an ice cream or visit the Theatre.
I was lucky enough to experience the incredible Taft Gardens,
80 acres of amazing and only available to guests of the Emerald or Blue Iguana
There are many events coming up in Ojai, The World Music
Festival and the Storytelling Festival to name a few.
