Ojai is a small city in Ventura County, California, northwest of Los Angeles and east of Santa Barbara. Set in a valley of the rolling Topa Topa Mountains, the city has a Spanish architecture village-like center dotted with art galleries, museums and New Age shops. A quaint getaway for a spa, yoga or spiritual retreat! Let Archive help you design your event with the best event rentals in Ojai!
The name “Ojai” was derived from a Native American word meaning nest. Known for its boutique hotels, hiking, countless spiritual retreats, and the neatest farmers’ market of local agriculture, Ojai is the gem of the Central Coast. It has the cutest downtown area full of art galleries, design shops and fashion stores. Believe it or not, Ojai city law prohibits chain stores. This is to promote local small business development and keeps the town truly unique! You have to see it for yourself to understand the charm of Ojai. With Spanish architecture and a Mediterranean climate, it’s no wonder that tourists flock to Ojai.
Ojai Valley Inn is a treasure. Situated on a mountainside, the inn is peaceful and serene. The Hacienda Courtyard, Artist Cottage Lawn (each with views of the Topa-Topa mountains) and the upcoming Farmhouse Lawn are all beautiful location for your ceremony. Receptions can be held in the Hacienda Ballroom, the Anacapa Ballroom, or the Orchard lawn (yes, it’s like it sounds – paths lined with fruit trees).
Ojai Valley Inn’s ballrooms are also perfect for hosting business meetings and company retreats. It provides a private, distraction-free environment that is quiet! This allows your team members to focus and concentrate. There’s a reason why Ojai Valley Inn is a premier meeting resort in Southern California.
If you’re looking for things to do, Ojai Valley Museum exhibits art in a historic church. That’s the most Ojai sentence we’ve ever written. Ha! Another fan favorite is visiting the Ojai Meadows Preserve. It’s a beautiful open space full of protected meadows and wetlands. It has a hiking trail, a plant nursery and spring flowers. There is also a variety of organic vineyards to stop by and wine taste! This is the Central Coast after all! Another fun spot: Bart’s Books. It’s an outdoor bookstore! See how charming Ojai is? We are obsessed!
