Laguna Beach is one of Orange County's top highlights, as this gem is home to several miles of Pacific coastline, ample natural beauty, high-end art galleries, and world-class dining and drinking. No matter what attracts you to Laguna Beach, you'll love strolling along the beaches, visiting the many parks, and immersing yourself in the art scene.
See Laguna Beach's most impressive art at the Laguna Art Museum, a gorgeous oceanfront space that's filled with awe-inspiring modern and contemporary art. This museum features only California artists, and exhibits change frequently, so you're sure to see something new when you visit.
Next, head to Heisler Park or Main Beach Park, where you'll find the area's best swimming and sunbathing, or go to Rockpile Beach, one of the area's top surfing spots. Once you work up an appetite, sit down to a fresh seafood meal or a healthy dish at one of Laguna Beach's many waterfront restaurants.
Whether you're traveling with the family, a significant other, or friends, you can stay right in the heart of Laguna Beach, surrounded by Mediterranean ambiance and just steps from the Pacific Ocean. For a budget-friendly stay, search just north of Laguna Beach, and you'll find family-friendly properties in nearby Newport Beach.
It's relatively easy to fly into Laguna Beach, thanks to John Wayne Airport, which is a 20-minute drive northwest of the city. Laguna Beach also makes for a fun road trip destination, as it's right on Interstate 5, about an hour from both Los Angeles and San Diego.
