Upscale Laguna Beach is SoCal must-see
The city of Los Angeles with its modern glass and 1 steel and endless driving through suburbs before you even leave what really is one large, flat Southern California metropolis, sometimes can be overwhelming to the visitor who just wants to sample the SoCal sun from the vantage point of one of the area’s many charming beachfront communities.

One of the most charming is Laguna Beach, worth the hour or so it takes to drive from the center of the metropolis and well worth considering as a base of operations for at least part of your next visit to the Southland.
