What not to miss - Laguna Beach stop on OC Beach Tour.


I'll be doing the Anaheim 411 OC Beach Tour in August with my 16 and 7 yrs old. As this is a kind of hop on hop off tour, we intend to skip the stops at Huntington Beach (we'll spend a few days there later on our trip); do a boat tour in Newport Beach, and spend the rest of the time in Laguna Beach. It has 3 stops at Laguna Beach : tide pools, main beach and sawdust festival. Are these areas 'walkable' to one another? The tide pools are a definite - I think we might be there around 2 PM. What is there to see around Main beach and sawdust festival?

Thank you!

Yes those spots are all walkable to each other. You can ask Tom of Anaheim 411, who was a valued poster here in the OC forums, what you should see in Laguna Beach. He is very knowledgeable.

At the Sawdust Festival you can see... ummmm, the Sawdust Festival and Art-a-fair.

Main Beach is at the head of Downtown Laguna Beach so you have all the art galleries, shops, museums, restaurants and sights right there.

If you do not want to walk from the Sawdust to Main Beach, there are free shuttles all over the city in summer.

Here is a Top Question on the summer festivals in Laguna Beach.

Well good news - I would not walk to Main Beach from the Tide Pools. I would recommend stop tide pools then go to Main Beach. You can hit up main beach and from there the city has free trolleys that go up and down Laguna where you can hop on and off.
