Laguna Beach is my most favorite beach in OC because it is so beautiful and there are many cute shops and interesting cafes and restaurants . Also you can find unique art on almost every corner of each street. Just walking around town is very fun to do!
Laguna Beach is located in the very south of the OC. It is about 1 hour driving from LAX.
There is a lot happening by the beach. First I have to talk about the hottest art festival in Laguna Beach called "SAWDUST" which just started yesterday (June 26, 2010) and goes until August 29, 2010 everyday 10am to 10pm. A one day pass is $7.75 but I recommend you buy a season pass for $15.
The location of the festival is gorgeous! It is situated on a three-acre eucalyptus grove, complete with waterfalls, in Laguna Canyon.
They have very good taste in live music, 3 stages at the same time and different musicians day and night everyday.
Under the main stage is a mushroom store, it is super cute!!
Many of unique arts and crafts that you see are for sale. All artists exhibiting in the festival are residents of Laguna Beach so you can find the truly local arts.
There are just a few food stands and I chose "Thasos Greek Island Grille". I was happy to eat fried calamari and listen to the live music.
Everything you can see here is amazing and the people are extremely nice. I am a big fan of this event.

Every time that I visit Laguna Beach, I dream about what it would be like if I could live here...however 1 hour driving is the perfect distance for a one day getaway from Los Angeles.
