Ojai Avenue, Ojai
Santa Barbara area
Distance: 79 miles one-way
It's only 16 miles from the coast, but Ojai feels farther than that. Its main drag features Libbey Park on one side, high-toned shops along an arcade on the other. Before or after a hike in the surrounding Topa Topas or a 15-mile bike ride on the paved Ventura-Ojai path, come here for a bite or a retail stroll. www.ojaiconcierge.com.
