Visiting the Ojai Mountain California

Monday, December 2, 2019
The tradition of Thanksgiving is as strong as ever. Turkey, football, turtlenecks, and post-meal naps. Thanksgiving is about being thankful for what we have.  While it can be nice to spend your time off at home, or at a relative's house, it can also be a great opportunity to do a short road trip to get some break.

We visit the Ojai mountain at least twice a year, if not more. It is few miles from the coast, peaceful Ojai feels far removed from the noise of city life and congested freeways. It’s also visually stunning, encircled by rippling mountains where the sun casts a pink shadow when it sets.



Dreams do come true
Remember sometimes a delay is not always a denial. Trust in the Lord's timing.
Grateful to all of you, my friends and family for the prayers, constant love and support! We love and appreciate you all.

The city of Ojai is situated in a small east-west valley, north of Ventura and east of Santa Barbara. It is approximately 15 miles inland from the Pacific coast. The climate here is Mediterranean, characterized by hot, dry summers and mild winters, with lows at night sometimes below freezing. As is typical for much of coastal southern California, most precipitation falls in the form of rain between the months of October and April, with dry summers at times.

Ojai has the small town vibe, with a cool spirituality and artsy vibe. You can do as much or as little as you want: take a hike, shop, check out the downtown area and its charming, historic buildings, the museums, visit an olive oil farm or a tangerine grove, do some wine tasting. Many painters, sculptors, and musicians call the Ojai Valley home.


The town moves at a divinely unhurried pace, which is probably why stressed-out Angelenos — and Hollywood stars — have been coming here since the 1930s. But mind you, it’s no ghost town. A string of charming wine tasting rooms, art galleries and cozy B&Bs line Ojai Avenue. And the community-led Ojai Valley Land Conservancy works hard to maintain the town’s reputation as a haven free from shopping malls and large commercial developments.



Whether it’s an unplugged nature retreat or an indulgent weekend of dining and spa treatments you’re after, don’t miss your next chance to take the two-hour drive up from Los Angeles to Ojai.

    1. West Coast especially California State the cost of living is high. But you can't beat the almost perfect weather and beautiful mountain and coastal coast that is only hour/s away from each other. We just move here from the East and so far we love where we at.
