Top 5 Favorite Things to Do in Ojai

Ojai, California is a dreamy town, 90 minutes outside Los Angeles, surrounded by foothills in a picturesque setting. Looking for fun things to do in Ojai? Here are my favorites:

Equine Experience at Smarty Pants Ranch - looking for a unique experience? Spend 2 hours immersing yourself in nature at a private ranch, exploring mindfulness, presence, authentic connection and cultivating your intuition with horses. Great for individuals seeking inner exploration & grounding, couples seeking more intimate connection and families wanting deeper connection with each other and nature. Register here for our next group session, or schedule a private.

Hike on Horn Canyon Trail - off the beat and path, at the edge of town, a 45 minute round trip hike, with four water crossings is sublime. Enter at Thacher School, 5025 Thacher Rd, Ojai, CA 93023, then hang right, and follow signs to Gymkhana field, and you will see Horn Canyon trail-head on your left.

Visit Ojai Olive Oil- want to see how olive oil is made? An organic farm, remote beautiful setting, learn some history of olive oil, how olives are grown, and how extra virgin olive oil is extracted, blended & bottled - not to be missed.

Visit the Turtle Conservancy- love animals? Come have a private tour and see some of the most endangered turtle species on the planet. Arrange a private tour, for a moderate donation, and you will sink into the beauty, educate yourself about turtles….and will pet & feed tortoises too! Beautiful, unique setting.

Watch the “Pink Moment” from Topa Topa Winery - the Pink Moment is worth it all. Face east, and watch the sun set on the stunning, Topa Topa mountain range and watch it turn pink. This winery has the best outdoor vibe, lots of open seating areas to enjoy!
