Now that you’ve found us, it will be hard to forget us!
With 30 coves and beaches packed within 9.1 square miles srrounded by 20,000 acres of protected wilderness, there’s a lot of outdoors to navigate here. Laguna Beach is also home to luxurious resorts, intimate boutique inns, bed and breakfast hideaways and seaside cottages for visitors to pick and choose from. The tree-lined streets of the downtown village area are lined with quaint shops, sidewalk cafes, chatty pubs and espresso bars.
Located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, along the southern coast of Orange County, Laguna Beach is widely known as an artist colony, boasting over 100 galleries. And Laguna Canyon is breathtaking within itself, and hosts the renowned Festival of Arts, Pageant of the Masters, Sawdust Art Festival and Laguna Art-A-Fair which take place each summer. In addition, the City is also home to the Laguna Art Museum and The Laguna Playhouse, where an unknown Harrison Ford appeared on stage in 1965, in one of his earliest acting debuts.
Many Southern California visitors have often day-tripped to Laguna Beach, but what they’ve often discovered is that they should have planned for more time in our beach paradise. Whether it’s browsing the art galleries, shopping in one of our many locally sourced boutique shops, riding rip curls, soaking up rays, exploring our famous tide pools, taking in a round of golf, eating at one of the various coastal restaurants or hiking through one of our many trails, a visit to Laguna Beach can provide an endless amount of things to do (and things to write about). Check out a list of story ideas to get your brain churning for your next assignment.
Laguna Beach has so much to offer the year-round visitor that it really must be experienced first-hand and Visit Laguna Beach works closely with journalists from around the world to coordinate travel accommodations, provide media resources, offer fact-checking and arrange interviews and tours with people, businesses and organizations throughout the City.
