Spouse/Guest Outing — A Day in Laguna Beach
Saturday, March 18 — 11:00 AM – 2:30 PM
Most people who visit Laguna Beach dream of living there, at least for a moment.
Seven miles of pristine coastline, an ideal mix of fine dining and casual fare, outdoor adventure, unique shopping experiences, and plenty of arts and culture set Laguna Beach apart from other southern California beach destinations.
There are 20 coves and beaches packed within 9.1 square miles. The tree-lined streets of the downtown village area are lined with quaint shops, sidewalk cafes, art galleries, chatty pubs, and espresso bars. Whether you choose to stroll with the local naturalist and tour guide or head out on your own, you will enjoy the charms of this picturesque village.
The plein air (creating art in open spaces) movement took off at the turn of the century in this seaside community, and Laguna has diligently retained its artistic roots. Heisler Park at Cliff Drive features selected “Art in Public Places” and a breathtaking panorama of tidal pools and coastline – altogether an ideal excursion for those wanting stimulation for the mind, body, and soul!
Just as it is noted for its art, Laguna offers tempting culinary fare at a multitude of classy and cozy cafes and restaurants, so it’s only a question of which ocean view you desire. Whether you’re shopping for one-of-a-kind items, made-in-Laguna flipflops, or adding a summer dress to your collection, you’ll find it in Laguna Beach.
