Well...it's a reality-based TV program so it is taped all over Orange Co. and not just Laguna. If you travel to Laguna, you can tour the high school and the beach ("Main beach", in particular) and a few of the restaurants, etc. It won't take long to meander up and down the streets of the town center. Much of the program is also filmed at the homes these people live in which are NOT identified and you obviously would not be able to tour (these are private homes in an actual neighborhood). There are not any relatively cheap places to stay. You're best best is to find a hotel by John Wayne Airport/Costa Mesa/Newport or Irvine/Lake Forest and you can thereby drive everywhere closeby.

My daughter and her friends love this show. A group of girls were over last night until midnight watching the entire season on DVD. She gave it to her best friend for her 17th birthday! :)

We are considering Laguna Beach for our 25th anniversary in Dec. We have never been here, it's time I guess! :)

I agree you need to see Main Beach there. Drive north from main beach and turn left on Cliff drive and you a restaurant Las Brisas follow up that road. Nice grassy areas for walking and views of Laguna that is breathtaking. People actually will picnic at sunset.

Across the street from Las Brisas is "The Cottage" like a qute little house restaurant which is a great place for breakfast with lots of character. Just a bit north you hit Emerald Bay real wealthy community along the coast and just north is Newport Coast where they film "The OC" and where Kobe Bryant from The LA Lakers resides.

Go south a bit and Thalia Street walk down and there is a lookout areas that is filmed quite a bit in laguna beach for surf shots and some of the reality actors having deep conversations overlooking the beach. Many of the shops there on PCH are filmed inc. THE WHITE HOUSE, kinda a restaurant.

You can find a little cove and head down to the beach and get lost. Also people like finding and checking out all the marine life when the tide is out and walk out on the tidepools.

For accomidations I would recommend that are reasonable Best Western Laguna Reef Inn.

Lots to see in Laguna and the views of the coast is amazing. Worth seeing.
