Middle Lion Water Falls - The crystal clear water in the Middle Lion water falls is cold and refreshing. Even in dry years Middle Lion water falls are beautiful. Only a 2.3 mile hike one way with a 400 foot climb in elevation
out of Middle Lion Campground in Rose Valley. The east and west canyons have many beautiful water falls. Ask our National
Forest Rangers about this trail and hike. Their office is conveniently located a couple of doors down from ours.
If you are into "Green" and hungry, then you must go into Vesta "The Restaurant" and try one of their salads! An Ojai favorite gaining popularity daily is the Chop Salad.
A Ojai hidden secret and for us Tamale lovers, is Gourmet Tamales hidden at the back of Fitzgerald Plaza at 423 Ojai Ave unit #33 (the last unit). Seek them out for an inexpensive meal! A local favorite is the chicken tamale with their green or gringo sauce!
For an authentic Jersey Philly sandwich as well as the nicest sandwich maker in Ojai, go see Ken at Jersey Mike's at 423 E. Ojai Ave. A local favorite is just sitting outside along Ojai Ave. watching the traffic going by while enjoying a Jersey Mike's sandwich and cookie!
The face of "Ojai Coffee". The best Ojai roasted coffee in town, come by and try your favorite coffee, pastry, sandwiches and more. Ojai Coffee Roasting Co. 337 Ojai Ave. Ojai.
Many treasures to be found in Ojai's Libbey Park. Also check out what's playing and happening at the Libbey Bowl and Amphitheatre.
Local downtown park and known hangout for parents.
Incredible pastries, muffins and more baked daily. I love it all, so do what I do and ask for the warmest muffin or pastry! Ojai Cafe Emporium 108 S. Montgomery St. Ojai.
