Walking through Laguna Beach is like walking through a little piece of heaven on earth. It is a feast for the mind, paralleled by the amazing art, partnered with the delicious food to satisfy your body. Laguna encompasses deep one of a kind, breathtaking beach views, touching deep into your own soul…if you let it. It’s one of my favorite “go to” places since I moved to the OC. Just a quick $12 Uber ride from Corona Del Mar and you can be dropped off in one of the worlds most beautiful locations to visit, also the former set of MTV hit realty show “Laguna Beach” that aired over ten years ago. Laguna’s famous art galleries surround a couple dozen restaurants and boutiques as you make your way down South Coast Highway in Laguna Beach. I have shared some photos below of some of my favorite pieces by glamorous yet stylist artist, Elena Bulatova. Some of my favorite personal recommendations for dinner would be to try Selanne Steak Tavern, owned by Anaheim Duck legend Teemu Selanne. You can also try The Deck which provides American Seafood and freshly made cocktails at this beach front attraction. For happy hour check out, The Rooftop Lounge, where you can embrace spectacular rooftop view of Laguna Beach, while enjoying the sunset, delicious tapas and colorful cocktails.
A little hidden gem you can stop at on your way to Laguna downtown or maybe on the way home from Crystal Cove. This scenic beach, shopping center and Nature Reserve has so much to offer on a beautiful day. After a long hike or a beach day, I always stop at Ruby’s Shake Shack on the way home. Ruby’s is an adorable little shake shack that shares not only amazing ice cream and burgers but spectacular views of Laguna Beach that will truly blow your mind. Sunset is an ideal time to go and enjoy a classic cheeseburger or a vanilla or chocolate milk shake. The back patio allows guests an area to eat and enjoy their ice cream while over looking the ocean waves crash against the cliffs and floating surfers in the water. For dinner check out Javier’s although some say it may be a bit pricey bit I guarantee it will not disappoint.
I couldn’t resist sharing with you some of the spectacular views and sunsets we had the pleasure of experiencing. It allows me to appreciate each day on earth that much more. Thank you for allowing me to share this with you today and taking the time to experience this journey with me. 💙🙌🏼🏖👟👟 More to come next week…
