Ojai holds a special place in our hearts. It’s a quaint, wildly beautiful town, tucked away in the California valley. Our founder, Amber, has been going to the Ojai Valley ever since she was a kid and it’s still one of her favorite places on earth. Her family is rooted there and there is a certain type of magic to the town that words can hardly describe.
One of the best things about Ojai is that it’s only a short drive from Los Angeles. It’s the perfect day trip and also the ideal weekender. Whatever you can swing, just make sure you stop by some of our favorite spots below.
