This red-rock wonderland has it all. Vortex seekers can soak in the sacred energy (and crystal stores), fitness buffs can hike and bike world-class trails (Devil’s Bridge Trail is a must) and vegetarians can indulge in the organic, plant-based menu at ChocolaTree.
In this SoCal town nestled in the Topa Topa Mountains, instead of corporate chains (none exist within city limits) you’ll find yoga studios, health-conscious cafés (Farmer and the Cook), and five-star spas (Ojai Valley Inn & Spa). Must-do: Enjoy the famed pink sunset from Meditation Mount.

And with three waterfall hikes within walking distance of downtown, you don’t have far to go to burn calories.

Linked by the Santa Monica Mountains, Malibu’s sun-soaked beaches and Topanga’s hillside hikes make for a dynamic duo. Between the healthy eateries (SunLife Organics and Topanga Living Cafe), and bootcamp-like retreats (notably The Ranch Malibu, pictured, and The Ashram), you’ll eat, sleep, and breathe wellness.
