My impressions of Laguna Beach are as diverse as its history.
- if you care ... here's some good ~Laguna music
Originated around 1900 as an artist colony,
my first encounter with Laguna Beach was in the 60s.
In mid-sixties it was perceived by people from Colorado / elsewhere as an artist, surfing, and "hippie-acid" enclave. .
I ran away and spent a few months living there.
(see Nick Schou's book "Orange Sunshine")
Occasionally a few people turn up their noses whenever Laguna is mentioned
and the worn out smear - "yuppie" - pops out -
(? ... You be the judge)
I recently got a chance to visit old haunts,
and I personally enjoyed my time in Laguna Beach very much.
Like all places, Laguna Beach has it's mostly good & a few bad points,
but I always look forward to each visit,
if for nothing else than the natural beauty & nostalgia.
I apologize, but most of my "to do" tips revolve around simply walking and enjoying the beach....
I can't seem to make myself do much of anything else whenever I'm there....
- Pros:Walking the "Laguna-unique" cliffs & beaches, sunsets, vistas, good restaurants, hotels and clubs
- Cons:Gentrified, expensive, crowded at times (especially during weekend art festivals)
- In a nutshell:Take it for what it is and enjoy it. I think Laguna Beach is beautiful.
