Laguna Beach Village – An Enchanting Treasure
The whole of the Laguna Beach area is gorgeous but Laguna Beach Village is still a simply enchanting treasure that I highly recommend for a day trip or an overnight visit. It is chock full of quintessential Southern California village beach charm in a heavenly location with cool architecture and some form of public art surprising you around every corner. Plenty of cool shopping ladies, lots and lots of art, a plethora of excellent restaurants and a beach park literally in the center of town. Think Carmel Village Southern California Style tomatoes.
The hubby and I were reminded on this way overdue visit how much we love Laguna Beach Village and promised to never stay away that long again. We enjoyed all the above, including a walk on the beach, and we still felt refreshed and joyful at the end of our trip.
One of the highlights for us was the new “Art of Dr. Seuss Gallery” and it’s a must see if you visit Laguna! Why? First it is a wonderful treat and second there are only 2 in the country and the Laguna Gallery is one of them. The art gallery opened in 2015 and it is dedicated entirely to the life and work of Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, which includes featuring works from the Dr. Seuss collection and selections from his children’s hat collection. A trip to this gallery will take you on an enlightening journey about the man himself and how Theodor’s artistic vision emerged since beginning his career as an editorial cartoonist in the 1920’s.
