Local Lifestyle

The Village's lifestyle is synonymous with ease and elegance, without an ounce of pretentiousness. The Village is arguably the most walkable part of Laguna Beach (walk score of 85). With everything you need so close, there's hardly a reason to use your car — unless you're off for a scenic drive along the Pacific Coast Highway. Residents often favor strolls over drives, whether they're heading to catch a wave, grab a coffee, or meet friends for happy hour. In essence, this neighborhood thrives on its walkability. 
Not to be confused with the nonprofit organization Village Laguna, The Village community features homes in the central downtown and south areas of Laguna Beach. You can find older homes, including cottages with lots of personality. The local beaches are highly popular with surfers and beachcombers, creating an eclectic atmosphere.  

Dining and Entertainment

Surf & Sand Resort promises more than just luxurious stays; it's a culinary destination in its own right. Offering a tranquil setting that almost feels surreal, you'll forget about the daily grind. Whether it's a romantic dinner for two or a gathering of loved ones, the restaurant here has something to tantalize every taste bud.
The bar is actually on the sand, so at high tide, the waves crash against the windows for a truly one-of-a-kind experience. It’s one of the best-kept secrets in town. 
Step into the rustic charm of Oak, and you'll know you've discovered a culinary jewel. The staff's effortless grace and warm welcome pair beautifully with the sophisticated menu, offering a symphony of flavors that make each visit unforgettable.
Steak aficionados, your search ends at Selane Steak Tavern. As you sink into the cozy atmosphere, you'll know you're in for a meal as extraordinary as the setting. From finely-aged steaks to an exceptional selection of wines, the experience here is nothing short of culinary perfection.
For something a little more down-to-earth yet equally as enjoyable, Nick’s offers a relaxed ambiance without compromising on the quality of your meal. Meanwhile, Sapphire and Laguna Coffee Company provide the perfect one-two punch of fine dining and exquisite coffee in a setting that invites you to linger a little longer.

Things to Do

Celebrating local artists and artisans, the Sawdust Art Festival is a must-see. This open-air market captures the community's creative spirit, showcasing everything from handmade jewelry to intricate sculptures.
Then there's the Pageant of the Masters, an enchanting experience that brings art to life right before your eyes. During the summer, Brooks Street becomes the center of the surfing universe thanks to the Brooks Street Classic, the nation's oldest surfing contest. And for music lovers, "Music in the Park" serenades residents every Sunday, making weekends in The Village just a bit sweeter.
