“Absolutely Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

I found some time during a recent business trip to CA, so I decided I would see the Pacific Ocean. The hotel staff recommended I take the drive down to Laguna Beach. I am so glad they did! Driving along the Pacific Coast Highway was an incredible experience. There is street meter parking all throughout the area and plenty of places to take fantastic pictures. The town is full of life and has plenty to do. The roads are lined with palm trees and the area is very inviting to guests. Great location!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Laguna Beach is very picturesque. It is an artist colony. The First Thursday Art Walk of every month is fun and worthwhile. The Sawdust Festival is great fun. The Pageant of the Master's is really good. The beach is small, but cute. Walk up the path to the cliff gazebo and Las Brisas restaurant for a wonderful view of the ocean, beach and sunset. If the Art Walk is not on tour the art galleries. There are all kind of restaurants tucked into little corners. Walking on the beach from end to end is nice.

“Laguna Beach for all seasons and a perfect budget date”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We just went to Laguna Beach on a balmy February day and it was gorgeous. We started at the Wyland Gallery across the street from a Public Parking lot ($6) at 11:00 am. We walked the beach boardwalk, soaking up the mid-winter sun, then up the bluffs to the cliffside paved pathways. The views were magnificent in every direction. We walked as far as we could on the paths and then back to the Laguna Village to explore art galleries, eateries, and other shops. Lots of fun! We did all that within the 3 hour time limit in the parking garage. We missed enough that we look forward to going back!
