“There’s something special about Ojai. The beautiful valley enclave tucked in along the Topa Topa mountains in Ventura County is a haven for artists, spiritualists, spa-goers, golfers, hikers, nature lovers and anyone who loves a fantastic Ojai Pixie tangerine (they’re everywhere, served in and on everything). This is no longer the under-the-radar gem with a country vibe, hidden hot springs and a storied electromagnetic force. A new wave of homesteaders — including Hollywood A-listers, LA restaurateurs and hipsters looking for something more relaxing than the rat race — are setting down roots, buying homes and opening new shops and boîtes around town. The scene is a good blend of the old with the new, all fueled by oranges, olive oil and wine. The original charm is still there, but it’s a little more updated.
Spring is a particularly lovely time to visit, when orange blossoms permeate the air from the citrus groves that cover the area. It’s utterly intoxicating. Coupled with perfect temperatures — it’s not too hot yet — and this winter’s rainfall making everything green along the rolling hills and mountains, it’s a picture-perfect road trip. Here’s where to eat, sip and taste while there.”
