Laguna Beach was one of my favorite things I saw in southern California. It is simply gorgeous! It is landscaped to the tee and the beaches are gorgeous! There are lots of cute shops and restaurants (I only wish I would have had time to shop) and many cute surfers to watch. They get some huge waves so they really are a LOT of fun to watch. The other thing I found interesting is that the entire area is full of bunnies. They are super cute and very tame...very similar to squirrels in GA. Fair warning....the water is FREEZING. They wear wet suits year round and they have Great White Sharks so it might not be the best beach to play in the water but gorgeous for a picnic!
