Laguna Beach is a small, coastal city in Orange County with plenty of money, but more of an emphasis on “beach living” than glitz and flash. Main Beach features tide pools and a boardwalk leading to the paths and gardens of nearby Heisler Park. You’ll also find Aliso Beach Park, a popular surf spot and an underwater park for divers in the waters off Crystal Cove State Park. Hikers enjoy the trails of Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. This artsy town is also known for its annual Pageant of the Masters, an annual festival featuring “living pictures,” in which classical and contemporary works of art are recreated by real people. When it comes to housing, you can find anything from historic beach cottages to multi-million dollar state-of-the-art contemporary homes.
