Ojai California is an incorporated city located on Highway 150 between Ventura and Santa Paula surrounded by the majestic mountains of the Los Padres National Forest. Ojai is the focal point for the Ojai Valley and the main center for most of the Valley's activities and events.
Some of the neighborhoods that are common to Ojai are Arbolada, Persimmon Hill, Del Oro and Golden West.
The City of Ojai, which is the heart of the Ojai Valley, is off the "beaten path" some fourteen miles inland from the ocean. You have to go out of your way to get here and that is just how the residents like it. This is not a Wal-Mart town and never will be. Instead you will find many small town, family owned businesses, one movie house, some great "down home, kick back" coffee houses, a weekly farmers market with organic fruits and veggies, one small town local newspaper, some incredible art galleries, quaint shops and many fine restaurants. For the outdoor lovers there is a world famous 18 hole champion golf course, numerous hiking, biking and horse trails, a full service athletic club complete with tennis and two pools, acres of peaceful park lands and Lake Casitas.
Ojai is a community where on the 4th of July everyone comes out to watch the local parade and the fireworks. It is a community where people gather to raise money for and provide support for the land conservancy, the arts and to promote local theatre and music and film festivals. You will find churches here, meditation centers and health food stores. There are world famous private schools and excellent public schools. It is a place where the stress levels are low, the dress code is casual and people are just downright friendly. There is always something going on here and if you want to get involved and participate, you will never be bored. In the Valley there are more than 250 clubs and organizations that provide a wide-range of cultural, fraternal and social opportunities. Flowers will bloom here all year round and the weather is almost always perfect. By 10 PM this town is in bed and all is quiet except perhaps the distant sounds of a group of coyotes in the near by Los Padres Mountain Ranges.
