During this uncertain time when the world is experiencing a harrowing pandemic, you may not know what to do with your free time. You might have a vacation you need to use. You may need to get out of the house. You could want to spend time with your loved ones or alone. A great way to do this is to take a road trip, and what better destination is there beyond the coast of Laguna Beach? When you are thinking of hitting the road, choose Laguna Beach as your destination and you won’t be disappointed.
Time for a Road Trip
As we come out of the winter and await the full distribution of the vaccine, it is going to be a perfect time to catch the sun on a road trip. Whether you are coming from the North, the East, or even the South, Laguna Beach is a great spot to get out of town and find a beautiful beach and opulent artistic culture. Not only is it a great destination because it is the end of the road in some ways but because it is a welcoming and friendly town that offers so many things to do.
Things to Do
You could start with a day at Main Beach. Not only is it the most central beach in the city, it is located in downtown Laguna Beach, providing a variety of shopping and eating options. Spend a day by the water and perusing the shops around the beach. There is the famous basketball court where you can play a pick-up game. You will also find businesses who will teach you how to surf, snorkel, and bodyboard.
Once you have explored downtown Laguna and Main Beach, you can move on to the other beaches around town. There are so many options. One of which is 1,000 steps, where you can find solitude and a beautiful view of the ocean. There is also Aliso Creek, a perfect spot for a bonfire. Come early, though, the pits will fill up. It has also been the destination of Laguna Beach’s monthly drum circle on the full moon. Find out when and where it will be and you’ll be able to get some of that local bohemian flavor.
These options are just the beginning. You also have the Laguna Beach Art Museum, the Sawdust Festival during the summer, Pageant of the Masters, Pacific Marine Mammal Center, and record stores and book shops where you can find just what you’ve been looking for. You can even find some pre-made itineraries that will help you come up with ideas.
Depending on where you are coming from, you can hit the 133 highway from both the I-405 and the 1-5. There are plenty of ways to get to this intersection. When you are coming from far away, bring an automotive battery charger just in case. This will give you the peace of mind so that you don’t need to worry about your battery dying. Or, conversely, you can take a day or weekend trip from somewhere in Southern California. Though it isn’t that far from anywhere in SoCal, Laguna Beach provides the secluded atmosphere between the mountains and near the coast. You won’t regret any trip to Laguna Beach because it offers a getaway no matter where you are coming from. From close or far, the city is secluded enough to offer its own atmosphere.
Laguna Beach is a special place. While the winter subsides and the vaccine is on its way, make a plan to get out of your house and out of your mindset. Making a plan will help you get through the rest of the winter, dreaming of the sun. As we come out of this year and the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be very helpful to have something to look forward to. So what are you waiting for? Get started today and make a plan for something that will keep you going. Laguna Beach is the perfect laid-back getaway you need now more than ever. With so much to offer and a secluded, specific culture surrounded by beautiful vistas, you can’t go wrong with a sojourn in Laguna Beach.
