A perfect day in Ojai, California would depend on individual preferences, but here's one itinerary we recommend:

Morning: Start the day with a hike in the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy. The Conservancy has many trails to explore, such as the Hermitage Trail, the Horn Canyon Trail, and the Gridley Trail. Each trail offers different views and experiences of the valley.

Mid-day: After the hike, head to the Ojai Farmers Market for a delicious, healthy, and locally-sourced lunch. The market is held on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and offers a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, and prepared foods. If your coming any other day, we recommend Pinyon or The Dutchess for lunch! 

After lunch stop by the charming Arcade Plaza and shop our locally owned small businesses, including our retail space that is located at the North Entrance.

Afternoon: Spend the afternoon exploring the Ojai Valley Museum. The museum offers a fascinating glimpse into the history, culture, and art of the Ojai Valley. The exhibits change regularly, so there's always something new to see.

Evening: Enjoy dinner at one of Ojai's many excellent restaurants. There are options for all tastes and budgets, from farm-to-table to sushi to pizza. 

Night: Finish the day with a soak in the natural hot springs at the Ojai Hot Springs. The hot springs are open until 10 p.m. and are a perfect way to relax and unwind after a day of exploring the Ojai Valley.

Ojai is a beautiful and unique place, and there are many things to do and see, this is just one possible itinerary for a perfect day in Ojai, California.
