Crescent Bay Laguna Beach

Are you thinking about relocating to the sun-soaked coast of Southern California? Have you thought about Laguna Beach? Our little village on the sea is well known for its historical charm and artistic flare, and in 2012 was even ranked as one of the Top 15 Happiest Seaside Towns by Coastal Living magazine. If you’re on the fence about checking out Laguna Beach, here are five reasons why we think you can’t find a better place to live

1.  Architecturally unique homes

If you’re looking for a cookie-cutter home in a traditional suburban development, then Laguna Beach is probably not for you. But if you love world-class design and architecture that capitalizes on the scenic beauty and natural vistas in our corner of the world, you’ve come to the right place. From historically significant homes to modern masterpieces designed by renowned architects, Laguna Beach offers homeowners an opportunity to express their individual style with a truly distinctive home

2.  Outdoor lifestyle

Laguna Beach features over seven miles of some of the most pristine and beautiful beaches on the west coast, and residents can enjoy a myriad of seaside activities from surfing and snorkeling to beach volleyball and tidal pool exploring. If inland pursuits are more your style, take a hike on one of the hiking paths or climbing trails that outnumber the actual streets in the city or grab a bike for a mountain biking adventure

3.  Abundant art and cultural activities

Laguna Beach began as an artist colony, which has had a lasting impact on the atmosphere and culture of the town. Numerous galleries dot the streets of downtown, and every year the town hosts some of the most prestigious art festivals in the country, such as the Sawdust Art Festival and Art-A-Fair. Live music can be enjoyed virtually every night of the week at an array of venues, and the critically acclaimed Laguna Playhouse presents shows nearly year round featuring some of the most famous names in entertainment

4.  Trend-setting eateries

Foodies will love the variety of cuisines available in Laguna Beach. From American comfort food at Three Seventy Common to fresh seafood at Driftwood Kitchen, there’s a restaurant for every palate and price point. Wine enthusiasts will be delighted to know there’s even a winery in town. Laguna Canyon Winery has been bringing locally processed wine to Laguna Beach since 2003 and invites you to try their vintages for yourself in their tasting room

5.  Friendly locals

An investment in community is a source of Laguna Beach pride. There are so many opportunities to get out and meet your neighbors and enjoy new experiences together, such as the Laguna Laughter Club, which meets seven days a week for yoga on the beach, or the spectacular fireworks display presented every year in Heisler Park. Laguna Beach even has its own unofficial greeter, who waves hello to those passing by on the Coast Highway
