Visitors to Laguna Beach enjoy all of the features of a full-fledged resort town. Accommodations such as hotels, B&B’s, seaside villas, and full-service resorts cater to every traveler’s needs. The area is known as one of the premier dining destinations in Southern California, with restaurants serving many ethnic cuisines. Shopping in Laguna Beach offers visitors and locals many choices. Forest Avenue (home of Rock Martin Custom Jewelry) is the main shopping street, with art galleries and eclectic boutiques lining both sides.
There are always several attractions and special events to be seen in and around town, ranging from the art festivals, to historical tours and wilderness parks, to dolphin and whale watching. Laguna’s warmth can best be illustrated by gate built in the 1930’s. It still stands on Forest Avenue today and reads, “This gate hangs well and hinders none, refresh and rest, and then travel on.”
