This is an interesting community that has a wide and crazy mix of high and low class hotels, nice restaurants and dumps, rich people with ostentatious homes and street people living on the beach. Lots of shopping, surfing, eating and drinking. Something for everyone.

Laguna beach is like California from a movie. Amazing boardwalk. Lots of food options, basketball and volleyball on the beach and really cool surf shops.

Cliffs overlooking rocky beach with pockets of sand and surfers in the water...idyllic, but the town, lots of shops, lots of restaurants, lots of people, a fair bit of galleries (some interesting), but seemed rather canned, which doesn't mean not to go, just noting didn't see that special character here.

One of a kind beach resorts - stroll the area and explore the many shops and art galleries - check out the Sawdust Festival - sample the wide variety of restaurants while enjoying the sunset or just hang out on the breach for some fun in the sun

Laguna Beach is the most beautiful town in all of California. I have driven the coast and have yet to find a town with so much to offer! Restaurants, beaches, breathtaking views, galleries, clubs and shopping galore are just a few of the highlights of this beautiful town. I guess that's why I moved to the next town east of... More

We like Laguna Beach - it's not too big but it is big enough to have nice restaurants and a few good shops. The parking can be tricky but persevere and you'll find somewhere. It's quieter than the bigger places such as Newport Beach.

This is a beautiful beach town. The beach is rugged. The town has numerous art galleries and fun boutiques as well. Can be crowded on the weekend. Lots of nice restaurants perched on the beach.
