Ojai Pixie Tangerine Month
We already have a soft spot for Ojai, but now we've got one more reason to flock to the picturesque paradise. Ojai Pixie Tangerine Month celebrates — you guessed it — the sweet fruit that's unique to the region. Translation: tons of citrus-themed activities and special deals all month long at the town's restaurants, shops, and hotels. Sit in on a Pixie cooking class, revel in Pixie spa treatments, or take a Jeep tour of the Ojai citrus groves in this cute denim number. You'll look country cool while loading up on all that vitamin C.
