Sight seeing isn't the only thing attractive about our destination
ForbesTraveler.com, a high-end Web site that provides expert advice for the luxury traveler, voted Laguna Beach, California, as one of the "Top 10 Sexiest beaches in North America," in June 2008.
Among those voted in the top 10 destinations in North America, are South Beach, Miami, Fla. to Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
"We are elated that ForbesTraveler.com has honored Laguna Beach as one of its top destinations," said Judy Bijlani, Executive Director of the Laguna Beach Visitors & Conference Bureau. "This important consumer Web site recognizes the unique attributes of our seaside city including the artists, galleries, one-of-a-kind shopping, award winning restaurants and oceanfront accommodations."
"The surf's always up on this seductive swath of southern California coast, where toned bodies ride the waves and play perpetual volleyball," according to Lynn Parramore, the feature writer for the story. "The scenery is pure magic: rugged cliffs, swaying palms, and broad expanses of gleaming sand. Laguna is blessed with coves secluded enough to give couples a chance to get cozy. For solo travelers, the flirt factor is high in village cafes and on the plentiful hiking trails. At sunset, head to Splashes Lounge at the Surf and Sand Hotel for a buzzing cocktail scene."
Laguna Beach was also named one of the Top 10 beaches in America last summer by msn.com and aol.com. Laguna Beach was named one of the best beaches in the Country in '07 for its water quality and was also ranked No. 1 in the United States in economic impact of the arts on a per capita basis which includes total spending by both organizations and audiences.
