Come to Orange County's Artistic Oceanview Beauty

Oh Laguna! She is indeed a beauty with the bluest "Pacific "quality and great curves of majestic hills. Also, she has a lovely artistic eye and overal fine taste. One quality that is most beautiful about her openness. Physically, she is very accessible off Coast Highway (southern extension of PCH). Moreover, her personality is open, in a sense of being inviting to others.

Laguna Beach is referred often like Malibu, but this is an unfair comparison. Laguna is more inviting to the public than Malibu with her stretches of privatized beach area. I'm no expert of the surf conditions, but it seems that those who like to hit the waves agree with both of the beaches. Granted, they both have the most gorgeous and expensive homes by the shore. However, Laguna is where I will go for the perfect stroll, wading, dining, and a breathtaking sunset.

The annual Paegant of the Masters (in late summer), which features fine art masterpieces done with live persons.

    i agree with you. the only Real OC is that they charge so much for hotels you'd think only wealthy people live here. homeless and struggling too!

    Good page with eyes on the details. I'm glad you like Laguna and plan to visit it again. In my opinion, it's the most beautiful city in Southern CA, and I don't think I'm being biased about it just because it was my hometown.
