Visited the Ojai Valley California

Friday, January 18, 2019

The overlook from the Upper Ojai Valley to the lower valley.

Nestled in a picturesque valley Ojai is a beautiful small quaint town in the heart of central coast California.  Just north of Ventura and 90 minutes from Los Angeles.  There's always something new to explore in Ojai, from the locally owned boutiques with charming little art,  history museum in downtown to a unique cafes.

You can ride a bike all the way to Ventura on the protected bike path, amidst spectacular natural scenery.  Lots of outdoors activities for the whole family such as:  horseback ride, mountain bike, rock climb, hike, golf or play tennis. Surrounded by scenic hills and aromatic orchards, Ojai is the perfect place for a rejuvenating retreat. It's like a  mini-vacation to come even for the day.

Astounding views of the Topa Topa Mountains.



Residents of Ojai seem to have a magic touch.  Citrus fruits grow  happily in most of their home gardens.

Farm  for Red Bell Peppers
A great find while on the road . The Navy Missile Park at Point Mugu, a hidden gem that is free for all to stop by at and learn about our military history.

  1. I visited California years ago, I've only visited the main cities. I wish I had more times to visit the national parks. There is just so much to see.

  2. This is to say that California is much more than Los Angeles and I always look for unusual places to discover!
