Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach

First populated by artists of every ilk, the Laguna Beach community grew up in the 1930s and 40s as an exclusive art colony and retreat  for Hollywood celebrities and quiet millionaires alike. It offers stunning coastline, a mild year-round climate, and plenty to see and do for tourists and residents alike. Today, Laguna Beach might be more sophisticated with her offering of world-class art galleries, art festivals, museums, world-class dining, expansive beaches and turquoise waters, but her real charm lies in her ability to be both eclectic and eccentric. There are no “suburbs” in Laguna Beach. No house looks like its neighbor, and, in fact, sleek mansions happily abide next … Read more »

South Laguna Beach

South Laguna Beach

The community of South Laguna Beach begins just three miles south of downtown Laguna Beach, and is known for being the more relaxed side of Laguna Beach. It was annexed to the city of Laguna Beach in 1987, and only after many discussions and agreements on keeping the existing community “feel” in place.

San Juan Capistrano

San Juan Capistrano

San Juan Capistrano was initially a small village created around the famous Mission San Juan Capistrano. Now 200 years old, the Mission still plays “host” to thousands of swallows that annually migrate to the mission on or around March 19th, St. Joseph’s Day. As the Great Stone Church within the Mission welcomes the swallows, the town’s residents do their own brand of welcoming with a massive fiesta, parades, live music and food that harkens back to the town’s humble beginnings. This annual “Swallows Day” is a rich cornucopia of sights and sounds, with motorcycles pulling into parking slots next to horses tied to the hitching post outside the town’s oldest … Read more »

San Clemente

San Clemente

To locals in the South Orange County area, San Clemente is known for its rather diverse populations. San Clemente is split by the 5 Freeway, and sits just south of Dana Point. While it is actually a San Diego county, it is considered by most to be the last town in the vast L.A. coastline. Were you to drive further south from San Clemente, you would quickly find yourself driving for many miles in unpopulated terrain and beautiful ocean viewpoints prior to arriving in Oceanside, the gateway for Camp Pendleton and the southern San Diego-based towns. San Clemente established its original foundation on the west side (or ocean side) of … Read more »
