Ojai reminds me of a 1930s fruit crate label. It's filled with things that are wonderful and reminiscent of early 20th century California. Ojai has never allowed big chains or fast food restaurants to come into Ojai, and that's one of the reasons why it still retains it's old fashioned look and charm today.
Ojai was founded more than 1,500 years ago as a Chumash village. It's modern name is from the Chumash and means "nest of the moon".
Where is Ojai?
Ojai is appoximately 1 1/2 hours north of Los Angeles, and twenty minutes inland from Ventura. 40 minutes south of Santa Barbera.
