DAY TRIP | Ojai, California
Music of the Day: Lord Huron "Ends of the Earth"
Main Street, Ojai is fun to check out by foot -- you can find cute shops, wine tasting bars, ice-cream + coffee shops, and galleries.
Bart's Book is an independently owned outdoor bookstore with a large collection of rare and vintage books. There are plenty of spaces to sit and read in the shade and tons of interesting books to choose from.
Summer Camp is a home and lifestyle shop that totally had Wes Anderson "Moonrise Kingdom" vibes. The shop was full of whimsical camp-themed decor, vintage goods, and cute finds. The price-point was a bit high but it was still fun to window shop and admire every inch of space.
A fun place to relax and explore is Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. We enjoyed stopping by the ice-cream shop, sitting under the shade of these lantern-covered trees, and checking out the herb garden with tea houses.
