If you are new to the Southern California area, it can be a bit overwhelming narrowing down your options on things to do and places to explore in one day. Cesi Pagano & Associates has compiled a list of must see places and activities for each city in Southern California. Today we are focusing on a day in Laguna Beach.
Laguna Beach is one of the most desirable beach destinations in the world. This beachfront community is located between Monarch Beach and Newport Beach and offers residents breathtaking views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean. Filled with gorgeous beaches, historical charm, artistic flair, and stunning architecture, there’s always something to do in Laguna Beach.
Main Beach is Laguna’s most recognized beach in the heart of Laguna’s village. The beach area has sand volleyball courts, two half-court basketball courts, playgrounds, picnic tables, and public showers and restrooms. Enjoy a day soaking in the sun, or shop, walk along the boardwalk and check out the historic Lifeguard tower. If you’re looking for more tranquil, less touristy beaches, try Thousand Steps Beach or Table Rock Beach.
Just north of Main Beach, you will find the wonderful lush green park known as Heisler Park. The park sits high above the ocean and the walking trails through Heisler have some of the best views of the ocean and Laguna Beach. It’s an easy walk along the coastline with beach access trails throughout. It’s a wonderful place to have a picnic, relax, and take in the beauty of the ocean.
