Park the car and put on your walking shoes. There are so many little shops and restaurants to explore. People watch at the beach and take in a beautiful sunset.

I took a taxi from Dana Point to Laguna beach, about 30.00 US each way. The towns is full of shops, restaurants, souvenirs. Forest St has cute store. You should try the Ice cream parlor on Forest St and Pacific Highway is so good. I visited a store for leather purses is on Pacific Highway in a little Alley called... More

Laguna Beach is definitely worth the trip down from LA. Takes about an hour if you go on the freeway, along the water is more interesting which is about another half an hour droid. Even though it is somewhat touristy I found it very inviting. After walking around we wound up eating at The Cliff on the ocean. All in... More

Ok- nothing is as great as the Amalfi Coast. But if you're visiting California and what to relax in a beautiful classic beach town set among coastal hills right at the water, sandy hidden coves, strolling Boardwalk on the beach, quaint eclectic mix of architecture, a established art community, mountain biking, hiking, surfing, skimming, sunning and decompression, this is certainly...

Laguna Beach is idylic. Soft, clean sands, gentle surf and lots of things to see. The boardwalk and paved pathways are great for strolling . The volleyball game, sidewalk musicians, families enjoying the day, people walking dogs.. it's all great fun.

We were there to attend a family wedding. It was lovely weather, the sound of the surf was relaxing and calming. All around just a wonderful time. We walked the beach several times while we were there, sand felt good and it was clean-not any litter to speak of. We stopped at a couple places along the waterfront, enjoyed the... More

Laguna has something for everyone! Beaches, art, parks, music, restaurants, walking, stand-up paddling, surfing, snorkeling, picnicking, bon fires.....the list go on and on! The most scenic area of southern California is in Laguna Beach. The coves are spectacular. Walk down the steps at Diamond Street or Tablerock Street and you will be in for a surprise...and maybe see dolphins, whales... More
