Laguna Beach, California is an amazing place. It is the closest place I have found to Hawaii on the mainland. Malibu may offer similar vistas, but Laguna is more easily accessible. It’s a town with a mix of arts culture, beaches, restaurants, shops, galleries, and sunsets.
Being just down the road from Huntington and Newport, it offers landscape with rolling hills and incredible views. Huntington and Newport are much more flat. Somehow Laguna Beach has cliffs and ups and downs, and crashing waves.
It is also the location of Festival of the Arts Pageant of the Masters. Famous works of art are brought to life in front of an audience for a show quite unique. It’s rather extraordinary. Just like the town itself.
