Ocean View Inn B&B, Montara
Built in 1906 as a roadhouse, the Ocean View Inn still echoes its turn-of-the-century heritage with the old red brick built into the landscaping around modernized rooms. Most likely built after the great 1906 earthquake by a German couple, the Inn still displays a beautiful stained glass window with an inscribed dedication written in German, possibly as a memorial to his wife. The Inn was later converted to a hotel, then changed hands in the late 1950's and called the Farallone House. In the 1990's, the Inn was purchased by a corporation that attempted to demolish it and build a franchise in its place. Thankfully the County of San Mateo prevented this from happening, citing the Inn's historic value to the town of Montara. Soon after, it became the Ocean View Inn, still retaining hints of the old hotel ambiance.

Viticulture in Napa suffered several setbacks in the late 1800s and early 1900s, including an outbreak of the vine disease phylloxera, the legal institution of Prohibition, and the Great Depression. The wine industry in Napa Valley recovered, and helped by the results of the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976, came to be seen as capable of producing the best quality wine. Almost 4.7 million people visit Napa Valley each year, making it the second most popular tourist destination in California, second only to Disneyland.

Occidental is unique for its high concentration of visionaries and famous artists during recent history, and was the hub of community-centered social movements in the late 1960s and early 1970s, giving rise to nearby communes such as Morningstar, Wheeler Ranch, and Star Mountain.

There was a point in the early 1990s when the town was also a center of the "neo-hippie" movement in Sonoma County, but high property prices and other economic pressures have since driven out the young families that fed this movement.

For many years Occidental has been known for its Italian restaurants, which serve generous family-style dinners for a fixed price (following the European custom). The two Italian restaurants today are the Union Hotel (founded in 1879) at 3703 Main Street and Negri's at 3700 Bohemian Highway.. More recently, the large number of craft breweries in the area have made Barley and Hops Tavern, in downtown Occidental another local and tourist destination
