Traveled to Laguna Beach to honor the 18 anniversary of a sister's passing. And to celebrate my other sister's recovery from cancer and my own cancerversary. Heavy weekend, but the burden is lightened by the peaceful Laguna Beach atmosphere. Terrific walking trails, we put on several miles. Many families enjoying a weekend day. It's a well maintained ocean park!

Recently spent three glorious days in Laguna Beach. Had a wonderful time! Stayed at the Art Hotel and ride the trolley that runs all the way down to the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point and back, stopping at several stops near restaurants, hotels and galleries. Especially loved Las Brisas restaurant, the Watermarc restaurant and the beaches. Can't wait til my... More

I can't give a review that is anything but excellent. I've lived in the community surrounding Laguna Beach my whole life & I'm still finding hidden gems tucked away into the nooks & cranny's of this beach town that I've never seen. Traffic can be bad, but that is to be expected. While you're waiting, roll down your windows, take... More

What's not to love about Laguna Beach. You have everything within walking distance from fine art, excellent dining, unbelievable sunsets, great people and I can't say enough about the beaches. Take the Trolley or stroll through the streets. You will never get bored each time you go. Check out the Laguna Art Museum, get some coffee and Urth Cafe, watch... More

A wonderful town to live in and spend time in while traveling. A great place to find some unique galleries in the North side of town.

it took me one hour to ride from the Ritz Carlton stop to the Sawdust festival. I went on a Saturday at 11 am which is a busy time in Laguna Beach. This is pretty much the entire route of the free trolley. It is a great way to see Laguna Beach in small pieces, free and a pretty ride.... More

I recently went here for a food/town tour. I was totally impressed. What a great little beach town! Downtown is very walkable; be aware you can easily pay $20 to park your car for the day. There are local restrooms available ( some take quarters so have a bit of change w/ you) and lots of parking meters. There are... More

Nice beach for the active lifestyle. It is not a quiet beach by any stretch of the imagination. A nice beach to walk and surf. The tide comes very high and by night it's difficult to walk it. Otherwise, enjoyed looking at it from the many rooftop bars beachside.

Nice place to walk around and have lunch or dinner and then take a walk on the beach. The only downside is the heavy traffic and the crowds.
