Located in southern California, Laguna Beach (also known as just ‘Laguna’) is a beautiful seaside resort city known for its mild year-round climate, scenic beaches and coves, quaint downtown village, and for being an artist community.

It is easy to fall in love with Laguna Beach! What could be better than a relaxing get-away with seaside village atmosphere in a luxury hotel with great restaurants and shopping and a chance to walk along an beach boardwalk enjoying Laguna’s beach scene and historic lifeguard tower (see photo)?

Separated from the inland by a long canyon, Laguna runs about 7 miles along California’s Pacific Coast Highway PCH 1. We stayed near Main Beach (see photos), where Laguna’s downtown village meets the shore, with its Mediterranean Riviera-like ocean-front park, irresistible boutique shops (for women), very good restaurants, and inviting bars that are clustered along the easily walkable area of Laguna’s downtown village located along three parallel streets (Forest Avenue, Broadway, and Ocean Avenue).

Don’t miss walking along the beautifully landscaped walkway north of Laguna’s village to Heisler Park taking in the spectacular bluffs and ocean views. Other interesting attractions include the Laguna Art Museum, The Laguna Playhouse, Pacific Marine Mammal Center, and tide pools.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Laguna Beach and dinner at the 240 Forest Avenue restaurant on Forest Avenue (see photos) followed by a great frozen chocolate banana from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Laguna Beach’s numerous art galleries are fun to explore and Pat could not pass on the beautiful fashions from the shops.

Downtown Laguna swells with tourists on summer weekends, but even during the busy season you can find less crowded small beaches away from the downtown village and Main Beach.
