Laguna Beach provides the perfect setting for ladies of all ages who just want to have fun.
If you're in the mood to shop, boutiques feature artisan-crafted accessories and ready-to-wear designer fashions, jewelry, wearable art, antiques and unique home furnishings. Discover venues and events that showcase beautiful artistic creations by local talent, such as the seasonal Sawdust Art Festival, Art-A-Fair, Festival of Arts or the Laguna Craft Guild's fair, held most Sundays (September - June) at Main Beach.
Next, soak up some sun while reading your favorite book under a beach umbrella, and relax surfside at one of the town's pristine beaches. Close to shops and restaurants, Main Beach is the perfect spot to people watch, stroll along the boardwalk, or take a quick dip. For lunch, dine at upscale restaurants overlooking the Pacific, many of which are within premier hotels and resorts. You can also enjoy a more casual meal at a quaint bistro. From ethnic cuisine to sandwiches and salads, there's a menu for everyone's taste.
A day with the girls calls for pampering, so set aside time to visit one of Laguna's world-class day spas. Treat yourself from head to toe with a manicure and pedicure, as well as advanced skin-care treatments, hot-stone massages and body wraps.
Gain insight into Laguna's soul at any of the town's nearby 100 art galleries. If art inspires you, take in an art class offered by the Laguna Outreach for Community Arts. Designed for small groups, embrace your inner artist in many hands-on activities, such as sculpture, pottery and watercolor. For outdoor adventure, head to the hills for hiking or mountain biking or hit one of the dozens of beaches and enjoy surfing, kayaking and other water sports.
After a full day, enjoy drinks at a trendy Laguna nightspot or indulge in a sumptuous dinner at one of the town's fine restaurants with live music. An eclectic and impressive array of musicians, bands and DJs are featured at many of the town's restaurants and bars. By the end of your visit, you and your girlfriends will have memories that will last a lifetime.
