    Symbol of the City

    The Post Office

    The Ojai Post Office is probably the most recognizable symbol of the city. It's at the corner of Signal and E. Ojai Ave.
    It was built in the Spanish Revival Architecture that typified 1920s and 30s California Style. Nice views of the tower from Libby park.

    Ojai Museum and Visitors Center

    Ojai Museum

    Housed in the same building on E. Ojai Ave. The museum looks like a mission, and there is a nice courtyard in front and also in the back. Visitors centes can offer suggestions on galleries and spas, plus they sell maps of the hiking trails in the area. The museum is filled with local artists work, plus a small exhibit of the Ojai Tennis Tournament. I have not been in the museum for years, so it might have changed. Open, I beleive Thursday thru Sunday.

    Miles of Orange Groves

    Orange Tree on Shelf Road

    Drive through downtown and turn left. You will see acres of orange groves. You can smell the sweet scent of oranges, it' s so frangrant and wonderful. Sometimes growers will have oranges out to sell on an honor system. Makes for a nice drive or bike ride. The oranges are sweet, juicy and delicious.
    They would also make wonderful fresh squeezed juice.

    Hike on Shelf Road

    by pigletsmom Updated May 18, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View from Shelf Road

    This is a very easy hike that overlooks Ojai Valley.
    Take Signal Ave. north of E. Ojai Ave. Take the road until
    the trail head and park your car. Very nice at dusk or early morning, can get very hot in the middle of the day. Frequented by families and dog walkers. Bring water and wear walking shoes, but this hike is fairly easy. There is a bench at the most scenic part of the hike that overlooks the entire valley. Orange trees line the hike.

    Charming Libby Park

    Libby Park on E. Ojai Ave.

    Libby Park is a small park directly in Town. It has a nice spanish fountain along with wonderful oak trees, a gazebo, and play area for children. The park also has 8 really nice public tennis courts in the back of the park. There is a bike, horse trail, and hiking path behind the park that is rather nice.

    Twelfth Night

    A park filled with trees holds a handsome bowl where outdoor activities take place every summer. Watch Shakspeare as the sun sets over the Topa Topa mountain range and turns them pink. Last year they did Twelfth night, I laughed out of my seat!

    Beautiful Ojai Oaks

    These are old beautiful trees that are all over ojai. Stop and take a look. Libby park and the Racquet Club have fine examples, but they're really all over town.
