Travel Tips for Ojai

Eclectic Bunch of Locals

by pigletsmom

Ojai is a combination of classes and cultures. Included in the local population are wealthy artists and entertainment people,
bikers, hippies (yoga & new age), the poor (food stamps and homeless) and a very thriving lesbian population. Obviously not every local fits into one of these groups, but it's interesting to see these sub-culturals co-exist. It makes Ojai for the most part very open and accepting. There are shacks in Ojai, as well as multi-million dollar mansions. The social and culttural gap is astounding. Summer nights in Ojai when it cools down. Festivals in Libby park where everyone congregates.

Local Artists, Galleries, Studios and Workshops

by pigletsmom

Ojai has long been a mecca for artists. Many have settled here, the most famous being the famous artist Beatrice Wood who lived here most of her life. There are numerous other artists that are showcasd in galleries around town. There are also studios, workshops and the Ojai Art Center. There are also children's activities, plus a Artist Studio Tour sponsored by the chamber of commerce every October. Check with the Ojai Visitors Bureau for more info. http://www.visitojai.com/pages/visit/arts.htm Window shopping through the galleries.

Sunday Morning Farmer's Market

by pigletsmom

Every Sunday from 10am - 1pm is the Sunday Morning Farmer's Market. It's located in a parking lot behind Arcade Plaza on Matijia St.. Local vendors sell fresh produce, flowers, hand made soaps and crafts.

Not the Hollywood Bowl

by pigletsmom

Libby Bowl is a local tradition. Located on the west side of Libby park, it's a little venue that hosts a variety of entertainment. The bowl hosts notable acts such as Jackson Browne, Childrne's events plus the local Summer Shakespeare Festival. Check the visitor's center for upcoming events. There is typically something going on almost every weekend at the Libby Bowl.

Sisar Canyon Hike

by pigletsmom

Sisar Canyon Road is off of Santa Paula Road towards Santa Paula. This hike is for the somewhat expereinced hiker, but it's not that difficult or dangerous, it's just not for the very old or very young. Gets hot in the middle of the day so always bring water and a cell phone. Hike is best in the morning on a clear day. Dress in layers because the first part of the hike is covered by trees, then as you ascend it becomes open and can get hot. Great views of the Topa Topa mountains. Takes about 2-3 hours. Great creek and waterfalls that run along side the hiking trail. Mountain bikers, hikers and horses are welcome. Drive up to the water tank and park, unless you have a four wheel drive. My car is low to the ground and could not make it past the water tank. Actually thought I destroyed my engine trying to do so. There's a little ways before you get to the trail head, but look to your right, there is a lovely creek and small water fall. Gorgeous flora and fauna. Bunnies, squirrels, butterflies, and numerous birds. Poison Oak lines the hiking trail. Check out my warnnings tip.
