There’s something special about Ojai. Our beautiful valley, backed by the Topatopa Mountains and bordering the Los Padres National Forest, is a haven for nature lovers, hikers, artists, spa-goers, and golfers. Ojai is a small town, only 10 by 3 miles wide, but its village-like center, Spanish architecture, and Mission-style main-street arcade is dotted with art galleries, chic boutiques, family-run businesses, and wine bars. With its hidden hot springs and storied spiritual vortex, Ojai is full of natural beauty, a place to refresh your senses, where city dwellers and a new wave of homesteaders come to escape the stresses of urban life. Ojai is particularly known for the “Pink Moment,” when the sun sets and everyone stops, faces east, and silently takes in the rosy hue on Chief’s Peak and the Topatopa Bluffs. The spirit of Ojai offers a welcoming scene and a blend of the old and the new, with a country vibe fueled by nature, oranges, spiritual retreats, hiking, and wine.
