Laguna-Beach is most well known as California's premier artists community. The village of Laguna Beach sits along 8 miles of beautiful coastline with quaint homes and cottages tucked into the hills and bluffs that overlook the beach. Several well-known artists call Laguna Beach "home." While in town, you can visit the oldest art museum in California, and "First Thursdays," which is an art gallery walk on the first Thursday of every month. Wander through the interesting shops and boutiques along Peppertree Lane and Laguna Village and Arts. For outdoors activities, spend a day on the beach, exploring coves and tidepools, or take a kayaking sightseeing tour. Jog in the surf, play golf, or simply soak up the rays and relax. Laguna Beach also has several hillside parks where you can hike or enjoy a picnic overlooking the ocean. Several special events and festivals are held in Laguna Beach, including the Art-a-Fair Festival, and the world-renowned Festival of Arts & Masters Pageant, usually held in July-August. The famous Sawdust Art Festival is an annual event that is open daily June-September. In this unique event, 168 artists invite you to walk through the sawdust paths of their outdoor village of arts and crafts. You can watch as they create their works, or purchase art directly from the artist. As you end your day, have dinner at one of Laguna Beach's fabulous restaurants and watch the sun sink into the ocean, and dream of your next Laguna Beach vacation!

Laguna Beach Weather & Climate

The Southern Pacific coastline, between Los Angeles and San Diego, enjoys some of the most beautiful weather in the state year round. This region boasts over 300 days of sunshine per year, balmy days and cool evenings - perfect for beachcombing, tennis, golf and other outdoor activities. The rainy season runs November through early April, with dry conditions and low humidity the rest of the year. It's not unusual to go all summer with no precipitation at all. Low clouds and fog are usually present right along the coastline on warmer summer days, but clears up by early afternoon. The summer heat is moderated by cool ocean breezes, but keep in mind that as you travel inland away from the cooling effect of the ocean, the temperatures rise (although not to uncomfortable levels.) Thunderstorms in this area are infrequent and light.
