Sleepy Authentic Seaside Community

Seal Beach is rather small, but very quaint and appealing. Not that many tourists, mostly locals walking the streets. Cute shops and restaurants line Main Street.

Seal Beach is very green

Seal Beach has wonderful trees, flowers and gardens. It's a very pretty city.

Pretty Cottages are all over town

The streets of Seal Beach are lined with cottages and beach bungalows. Many have lovely little gardens. Take a walk around the town for a nice stroll.

    How have I missed Cafe La Fayette? I'll have to look for it next time I'm around. You must know of Kyle at the Abbey then?

    I slept in that park after doing the 2nd Street Crawl and ending the night at Turc's in Sunset Beach. The next day was not so kind!
