Travel // Off to Ojai

Oh haaayyyy, Ojai! I know, I know, a super original joke. I just can’t help it. I’m taking off today for a teeny mini-vacay with Mr. Lovely, and we’re heading just a bit outside the city to Ojai. Can’t wait for some time to relax, chill out, get recharged, and have a little belated birthday celebration.

If you’ve ever been to Ojai I’d love to hear your tips! We’re looking for great spots to eat, pretty hikes, fun shops, and everything in between. So let me know if you have any recommendations. Stay tuned this week, though, because I have some killer stuff coming up that you won’t want to miss (here’s a hint: Palm Springs peeks, giveaways, DIYs, and more!). xoxo

      It was such a treat! Loved it. Do you live in Ojai?

      • Joelle on said:

        I live in Ventura, but Ojai isn’t far and we try to get out there whenever we can 🙂

          That’s awesome! I haven’t explored Ventura much but I’d love to — that’s kind of where the turnoff is to get to Ojai, right? Near the coast?

    There’s a LOVELY ice cream shop on the main little street. no idea what it’s called. Ok, I’m SO helpful. have the best time!

      We saw it! By the time we found it we just happened to be stuffed with strawberry shortcake, so… I guess we’ll just have to go back. 😉

    Ojai is beautiful! I’ve been there a handful of times, mostly when I was a teenager (so a long time ago). I can’t think of one particular attraction to tell you about to go see. The whole place is magical. Hope you have fun.

      Magical is right! What a cool spot.

    I hope you two are having a wonderful time! My mom was born/raised in Ojai and I grew up there on the weekends visiting my grandparents/aunts/uncles/cousins. Such an amazing little town! I hope you got over to Bocalli’s for some bruschetta, pizza, and their AMAZING strawberry shortcake. If you’re still up there, you might want to go get a drink at the Deer Lodge tomorrow!

      Thanks so much for the recommendations, we did both! So, so fun — can’t wait to go back.

    Post Baby we went to Ojai for my husband’s 40th getaway. Sigh. We never even left the Ojai Inn and Spa. LOVE that place. It’s heaven.
