  • 1. Casa Laguna Inn
    Casa Laguna Inn & Spa, Laguna Beach

    The Casa Laguna Inn is family friendly with a helpful staff. Yes, it's pricey and could use some serious updating, but the pool and grounds are relaxing. Overall, the atmosphere is worth it.

  • 2. Festival of Arts - Pagent of the Masters

    Live actors and clever set designs make paintings come to life. Even if you're not an art historian, this is interesting. Younger kids will be bored, though. (Children 4 and under are not allowed.) Bring your binoculars and avoid driving if you can. One great thing about Laguna Beach in the summer, the shuttle service is free.

  • 3. Ristorante Rumari

    Excellent Italian food! If you only go out for one great dinner, please go here.

  • 4. Laguna Beach Critter Sitter

    Unfortunately, dogs are not welcome everywhere. We felt completely comfortable that our dog was in excellent hands with Theresa.
