“Lots of interesting things to do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Laguna Beach is a charming town with many restaurants,art galleries, shops for jewelry, clothing and doodads and the beach is lovely. Yes, it's crowded and sometimes VERY crowded but there's a reason because it has something for everyone and not many touristy shops (i.e.t-shirts, sweatshirts, baseball caps & fast food) Parking can definitely be a problem, but persevere.

“Great So Cal Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Laguna is one of the nicest So Cal beaches! It is way nicer than Huntington. If you only have one day to visit the beach chose Laguna or Newport.

“There is "dig me beach" on Maui and Laguna Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

These are my two favorite beaches. Very different but both very special. Kaanapali has the warm trade winds and the best weather in the world. Laguna Beach has a great beach steps away from great art, food, drink, theater and parks. Enjoy it all.

“Laguna beach vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

One of the most beautiful places to visit, lots of art and fun unique gift shops. So many restaurants to choose from, one of my favorites is tommy Bahamas . Great for taking pictures especially by the las brisas restaurant . Tons of little shops tucked away all through the town. Awesome place.

“best little town in SoCal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

had my choice of any place to live in Southern California --- the choice was easy -- there is a reason the Laguna gets over 4 million visitors a year -- fun place, great beaches and parks, terrific restaurants, a zillion art galleries....
