This gem of a town has only 8200 residents and is filled with great restaurants, spas, shops, art galleries and is surrounded by the majestic Topa Topa mountains. If you like a small town feel with lots to do, Ojai is your place. There are many renowned festivals including the Ojai Music Festival, the Ojai Playwrights Conference, The Ojai Wine Festival, and the Ojai Lavendar Festival to name just a few. Between March and October there is something happening almost every weekend. You will never be in short supply of things to do here. Cooking classes, art classes, music concerts, theatre, and gorgeous hiking and biking trails are all plentiful in Ojai. And most importantly, the people in Ojai are warm, friendly, and very caring of their neighbors and fellow community members. I feel blessed to have found Ojai. added by Ojai Gal
