Thanksgiving Day in Laguna Beach

With over 100 restaurants, you are sure to find somewhere to make your Thanksgiving a meal to remember.

Let someone else do the cooking as you and yours enjoy Thanksgiving in Laguna Beach. With special meals, fall-inspired dishes, and warm sunny skies, you can't go wrong making your Thanksgiving a beach inspired feast. 

After you've stuffed yourself on stuffing and tasted too much turkey, you'll probably be ready for relaxation. But don't forget about this one-of-a-kind event at the Nix Nature Center, for a chance to walk off that hearty meal with a scenic stroll through our wilderness park.
