Ojai Weekend Travel Guide

My full Ojai Weekend Travel Guide has been updated in 2022 and is now available on my other website, Golden State Getaways. Be sure to check it out to learn about 22 Amazing Things to Do in Ojai, California!

Wow, Ojai (pronounced oh hi) has changed so much in just the last few years and is so much livelier than it used to be! There is so much to do and see there now. My grandparents lived there in the 80s and early 90s and my Mom and I would drive up there on the weekends. Only a few years ago, we would drive up for a day trip, and I don’t want to say there wasn’t much to do, but really, there wasn’t much to do aside from eating at Boccali’s, stopping in at Bart’s, and shopping at some of the “old lady shops” at the Arcade. But now there are a ton of restaurant choices and “younger” lady shops!

Be sure to check out my blog post, 22 Amazing Things to Do in Ojai, California to learn more!

I found your travel guide because I'm staying in Ojai for a few days and wanted to find some local things to do...kind of disappointed because the fruit stand you mention is nearly 50 miles from here. Perhaps that is something to note for future visitors looking for something in Ojai rather than 45 miles outside of it.

Hi Laura, Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm sorry you chose to focus on the 5 things I recommend to do while DRIVING FROM LA to Ojai and seemed to skip the 17 things that I recommended to do WHILE IN Ojai. Yeah, 17!

If you had read further down, you would have found some tasty eats, some great shops, and a couple awesome places to go for some yoga and meditation! Perhaps that's something to note when you're reading future blogs, to actually READ them, and scroll down.
