Jewel of Orange County: Laguna Beach Nature, Arts & Eateries 🏖

Buy discounted tickets at : https://laguna-beach-tour-1.eventbrite.com Ever wondered what exploring Laguna Beach would be like? CityGyd is proud to announce our exciting new tour as we visit Laguna Beach and immerse ourselves in its art, beaches, cliffs, shopping centres and restaurants. Once a home to Warren Buffett and many Hollywood celebrities for decades, Laguna Beach is possibly one of the most paradisaical beach communities in America. We kick off our tour at the Laguna Beach Museum, home to fine artwork made when the city was founded by artists as an art colony back in the 1910s. We will then stroll throughout beachfront Heisler Park, with its various art sculptures and breathtaking lookout views down steep cliffs and lagoons. The park is named after Howard G. Heisler, who partly owned the Laguna Company which purchased land now known as Laguna Beach back in 1905. Next we will browse multiple private art galleries, including the world-renowned Wyland Galleries, as we enjoy breathtaking views from Heisler Park and the beach area, with its volleyball court and tower. Lastly, we will stroll through the Promenade's small shops and art galleries, where we will conclude our tour by sharing a meal while we reflect on the breathtaking beauty of Laguna Beach. **** Tour is hosted by Mitesh, a life-long resident of Orange County and nature/touring aficionado. When not touring, Mitesh works part-time as a media network engineer and real estate investor. Mitesh holds a BA in business administration from Cal-State Fullerton. Powered by CityGyd.com.
