Just outside of Los Angeles, Ojai (pronounced O-HI) provides a quiet escape for couples, families and even celebrities looking to unplug for a few days. Ojai is a laidback, bohemian community, and one that's best for families with infants and toddlers who are content to nap in the stroller while you explore the downtown shops, or splash in the hotel pool while you savor cocktails made from local ingredients. Save for some hiking opportunities, your teens will likely be bored in Ojai.

Ojai is known for its upscale shopping and restaurants, vineyards -- including the famous Ojai Olive Oil company -- and boutique hotels and resorts. Combine your trip to Ojai with a visit to neighboring Oxnard and Ventura, California. In both towns, you'll find outdoor adventures, beautiful beaches, museums, a children's water park and a more family-friendly vibe overall.
