The Classic Californian Vacation in Laguna Beach
If you’re packing for a trip to Laguna Beach, get ready to fall in love with nature: with clear blue skies, blue ocean waves, and hidden coves - perfect for a romantic spot. You can also have fun exploring Laguna’s art scene, reflective of the early impressionists who gave the California destination its artistic reputation back in the 1900s. There are many galleries to explore, live music festivals and parties in the summer. Stroll around the popular streets of Broadway and Ocean Avenue, people-watching on the weekends, or taste delicious Californian fusion cuisine in the many restaurants. Of course, the sand and shore are never far, and if you come with kids, you can have the perfect time just relaxing at the many beaches. What's more, when you choose a Laguna Beach vacation home, you’ll find all the comforts and privacy you need on vacation.
How to reach Laguna Beach
It’s a breeze getting to your Laguna Beach vacation homes. In the heart of Southern California, you’ll find it 35 miles south of Los Angeles. Driving to Laguna Beach will take you along the beautiful and scenic Pacific Coast Highway 1. If you have time, enjoy the ocean view and get swept away by the beauty. If flying in, the closest airport is John Wayne Airport in Orange County. It has over 20 domestic and international flights a day. Rent a car and drive just a half an hour to your Laguna Beach vacation rental, or take a taxi from the airport.
Best places to enjoy on your Laguna Beach vacation
From your Laguna Beach vacation rental, head to the central beach of Laguna, the center of the action. Your family will love the volleyball and basketball areas, and for smaller kids there are also playgrounds available. The most popular beach for swimming, this is where you can work on your tan and lounge around while enjoying the ocean waves.
At Heisler Park, just above Picnic Beach, explore the coves and tidepools of the rocky coast, or just kick back and enjoy the view. The perfect place for taking amazing travel photos, it’s also a good idea to bring an underwater camera: snorkeling is great in these parts, as is deep sea diving.
Crescent Bay is the best beach for surfing, and has spectacular views. Over on the south end, you can go skimboarding and scuba diving at Victoria Beach, which feels a little less crowded. Aliso Beach County Park is also great for body-surfing. Families will enjoy the barbecue pits and playground. Parking is also available here.
Another local favorite is the Thousand Steps Beach, a more secluded spot great for sunbathing and snorkeling.
Art events and fun in Laguna Beach
If you book your Laguna Beach vacation rental during the summer, try to catch The Festival of Arts. It is an annual event, running from July to August. For two whole months, be witness to some of the best displays of local art. Not just paintings, but the festival also has art workshops your children can join, and bands entertaining every day with live music. A particular highlight is the Pageant of the Masters, a performance in which live actors recreate famous paintings with elaborate costumes and sets.
The monthly Gallery Art Walk is one of the most festive events in Laguna Bay. Forty galleries and the local museum participate, attracting a lot of visitors.
If you love theater, check out Orange County’s oldest theater, the Laguna Playhouse. Active during both summer and winter, you can catch some of the finest acts live. It is easy to enjoy the local culture before relaxing for the evening in your Laguna Beach vacation home.
Making memories in Laguna Beach
This is the place to vacation if you need to reconnect with nature. Besides swimming, you can simply take walks along the coast, hike around, or go diving. It’s one of those thrills you shouldn't miss, even if you try it just once during your stay in a Laguna Beach vacation rental.
Divers can rent gear from the Laguna Sea Sports near Shaw’s Cove. They also give lessons, so even if you are a complete beginner, you can sign up for your first dive. If you prefer biking around nature, pick up some mountain bikes over at Rainbow Bicycle Co. They also provide children’s bikes and helmets.
After a full day of hiking, exploring, biking, swimming and sunbathing, you’ll have the pleasure of your fully-equipped Laguna Beach vacation rental to come home to. Laguna Beach vacation homes are the best way to have a family-friendly vacation in a California beach paradise.
