Drive through the Orange Groves, Ojai, Ventura California

Description

It's nice to take some of the lesser-traveled roads in Ojai to see the orange groves and the nice homes. Follow the route below and you'll see wonderful stone walls, rows of orange trees, and of course, lovely mountains. Homes tucked away amongst pretty landscaping and trees add to the pleasant feel of this drive. Roll your windows down and enjoy the blossom-scented air and the feeling of chic countryside freedom.
Boccali's Restaurant looks like a nice, sunny spot to eat, right at the base of the short winding drive up to Ojai Valley Lookout, amongst the orange groves. On the corner of Highway 150 and Reeves Rd.
While you're right by it, take in the great vista at Ojai Valley Lookout. Afterward, grab an icecream in Ojai Town. If your kids need to burn off some of their climbing energy, take them to Soule Park, where there are fantastic unusual play structures.
The prettiest spot in the whole of Ojai is Ojai Valley Inn and Spa which you must take a stroll around while you are in the area!
