Outdoor enthusiasts can snorkel, scuba dive, body-surf, or hike the trails in nearby Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. A center for artists, there are a number of special events and festivals,such as the Sawdust Art Festival, Festival of Arts/Pageant of the Masters, Art-A-Fair and Plein Air Painting Invitational. The Laguna Art Museum focuses on California artists. Window shoppers and collectors will enjoy strolling the village’s quaint streets, as well as visiting galleries spotted along Pacific Coast Highway.

Heisler Park is a very photogenic spot stretching along the protected Laguna Beach nature preserve. It offers scenic views of offshore rocks and several paths down on to the sand. There is sometimes scarce metered parking all along the edge of the park.

Beautiful campsite, stunning views, great walks over hills with sensational views over the Pacific. Friendly staff, great facilities for RV drivers. Perhaps a little expensive for a state park at $75 per night but nevertheless I would recommend this state park for its proximity to the beach and amazing treks.

Laguna Beach is my favorite place to visit, and Crescent Bay Point Park is just one of the lovely parks to experience! The flowers and view of the coves are spectacular! It really has a Mediterranean feel!

Located on the Festival of Arts grounds is one of the most unique theatrical productions in the world, the Pageant of the Masters. Watch real people be magically transformed into life-sized re-creations of famous works of art. A live narrator guides you through the story of each living picture accompanied by a full orchestra. Shows are nightly. There is nothing like it anywhere... only in Laguna Beach.
Every year, the Pageant chooses famous paintings which are depicted by people dressed in the same costumes as the ones in the paintings. With special stage design and lighting, the audience perceives the paintings to be paintings until they get a demonstration on how it is done. A live band plays beautiful music during the showing.

During the off-season, this service runs Friday through Sunday. It seemed to be pretty much on schedule and info posted says it may be 20-40 minutes between stops. The corner of Legion and PCH was right below our room and we did see it come by frequently.
Our favorite "Catch the Wave" ride is to go to Salt Creek/Monarch Beach and go to that wonderful park for a long walk. No complaints about the service.

A good way to start the New Year, challenge yourself to the best way to build your lung capacity, tone your legs, arms, and bring a smile to your face. A natural anti-deppresant, everyone is happy after attempting this challenge. Arduous at first, bring water, easy does it, then come back again and again! It is always interesting to see the regulars who challenge themselves with extra weights-impressive.

The Pacific Marine Mammal Center rescues, rehabilitates and releases marine mammals and inspires ocean stewardship through research, education and collaboration. We are open to the public for visitors every day from 10am - 4pm. We are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Day. There is no charge for visiting us, but donations are appreciated!
We were lucky enough to have a friend show us around. Everyone here is very passionate about helping the Pacific Marine Mammals, being loving but making sure that there is no human imprinting for the ones who will be released back to the wild when they are well enough.

I always make it a point to visit Laguna Beach anytime I am in the area on business.
There is a long boardwalk with plenty of benches to use to relax and people watch or watch the waves.
There are volleyball nets and basketball courts at the beach.
There are clean public restrooms at one end near the cliffs.
There are plenty of shops, bars, and restaurants all along the beach.
The lifeguard station is an iconic one.

The Graduate, starring Melanie Griffith, was the production, the house was sold out. A small intimate venue, this is a close up experience for the audience and Players. Lots of similarities to the movie of years ago, but set on the stage, less scenes can be accomadated. I did miss his landlord, in the movie, played by Norman Fell. The room was much less attractive as I remember it. A better explanation as to why Elaine did not marry Carl and instead ran away with Ben was offered and brought some clarity to me. Lots of movement of set pieces, mostly bedrooms, is accomplished by the silent crew. They all had great posture as they moved around the furniture. Off on the side aisles, Left or Right, some perspective is lost to the viewer, but if someone in your party needs an aisle seat, this will be your dilemma for the night. Very sexy looking Lingerie is worn, and some similuated sex occurs. This goes a little further than did the movie. Standing ovation as we left to find our car and drive home thru the misty, crisp evening.
