We spent some time in Laguna Beach in February. It is absolutely a beautiful coastal town! There is a beautiful walk along the ocean that is above the rocky coast and beach. It is lined with gorgeous flowers, plants and cacti. The parking is a bit of a pain but you can use your credit card to pay for a few hours at a time. I think Laguna Beach is a hidden gem of California, not well known outside of the local circles but well worth the visit! There are also great restaurants that look out over the ocean for sunset dining and quaint little shops where you can window shop or spend some money! Worth the visit!
