Laguna Beach is a quintessential California beach town with a twist. Like most beach communities, it has a laid back feeling, but is also artsy and filled with galleries, outstanding restaurants, adorable shops and beautiful views.
While it has the typical candy, seashell and surf shops, it also has some well-curated home décor and clothing shops. In addition, Laguna Beach is quite the dining destination and has some of my favorite California restaurants. The former artists’ colony is also home to Pageant of the Masters, a summer-only event that exhibits “living pictures” where classic and contemporary works of art are recreated using real people. Another summer-only event is Art-A-Fair, a marketplace filled with art created by artists worldwide.
Visit Laguna Beach if you ever have an opportunity!
