Santa Paula Stroll

John and I took a trip to Santa Paula a couple of weeks ago. We love to get in the car and wander for a day into the small towns nearby. It's not hard to get out of Los Angeles and find something sweet.

Originally a Chumash Indian village, Santa Paula is now the Citrus Capital of the World.

The town seems to be doing well, but I like this empty store shot.
We made the mistake of eating in Fillmore. Don't do that. Eat in Santa Paula. There are a few good choices. Antique shops, too. It's an easy drive from Los Angeles, and a nice place to stroll the streets and feel like you live in a small town for a day.
