- Things to Do
Laguna Beach Sister Cities is a unique initiative focused on building relationships with cities from around the world as a collaborative exchange of cultural and artistic ideas.
The Laguna Beach Sister Cities Association (LBSCA) was established in 2008, with the primary goal to establish and maintain long-term relationships between the City of Laguna Beach and our sister cities, Menton, France; San José del Cabo, Mexico; and St. Ives, England. These partnerships encourage a collaborative exchange of cultural, educational, and business activities. LBSCA is a member of Sister Cities International, an organization providing leadership and guidance in the establishment and operation of sister city organizations worldwide.
The Laguna Beach Sister Cities Association (LBSCA) Inc. is a broad-based, Laguna Beach City Council approved, all volunteer, non-profit organization.
