Tales and Reviews From Laguna Beach

Posted By on Fri, Jun 22, 2007 at 9:40 AM

Hey kids, it’s been a while, but I am tuning in to you from the lovely and quaint Laguna Beach, Calif.

My family has had a cute little two bedroom condo out here for years, and I just can’t stay away. If anyone is out in California this summer or in the near future, I recommend everyone to visit this eclectic little beach town, saturated with liberal residents, passionate artists and fabulous places to eat and window shop. 

I would like to recommend two activities. My significant other and I had drinks and appetizers last night at this place at the top of Hotel La Casa del Camino called The Rooftop. On this rooftop terrace we enjoyed pinot grigio and shrimp and pork wontons. As the red orange sun sank into the ocean, we were accommodated with warm blankets as the ocean breeze was upon us. This place is exquisite and affordable while showcasing the famous Laguna Beach shoreline on the cusp of the beach. If anyone is in the area, I suggest you indulge in the sunset and yummy food at The Rooftop.

Today, we voyaged down Pacific Coast Highway to San Clemente where we visited the Rainbow Sandal Factory (where their prices are dangerously low!) and walked the Pier. After walking down the San Clemente Pier and even witnessing a man fish and catch a sand shark, we sat down at the restaurant at the end of the pier called Fisherman’s Restaurant. There we sat hovering over breaking waves and zealous surfers and enjoyed a colossal mudd pie dessert and their specialty drink, called Cottons. San Clemente, similar to Laguna Beach, features cute little shops and great food. Not to mention the views of the coast from the pier are reason enough to visit.
