Laguna Beach

Wake up to the sound of the waves crashing right outside your door at the Surf and Sand Resort, and your belief that Southern California is the best place to live will be completely restored, 405 construction be damned. Take a hardcore yoga class at Ritual Yoga, a studio that’s also a gallery for local artists. Then hit up Active Culture for one of their macrobiotic breakfast bowls made with brown rice, cabbage, black beans, veggies, avocado, and special sauce. You can also do wine tasting at Laguna Wines, or even dive the native kelp forests with Beach Cities Scuba, where you’ll see everything from bright orange giribaldi to giant spider crabs. For shopping, be sure to hit up Green Tree General Store, a hip little boutique that features a terrarium bar with all sorts of gorgeous succulents and amazing California leatherwork. If your soul needs some realignment, The Chakra Shack should get you back in order. Or just take a stand-up paddleboarding/yoga class at SUP CO. That should do the trick.
