Laguna Beach is a very popular place to go to in Orange County and a great place to shop. Shopping is one of my favorite things to do and one of the perks of travelling alone is you get to choose whatever store you want to shop at. Waiting for someone else to finish shopping at a store you’re not interested in is not an issue 🙂

There are a lot of tourist in Laguna Beach and navigating the road can be a little frustrating with the stop and go. This was my first time being in this area and it was fun to discover and explore from the window of my car. Parking is an issue and sometimes can be hard to find. I parked off of Pacific Coast Hwy on the side of the road along with a bunch of other cars. The word “Highway” can seem intimidation but in this section of the city, its actually just a regular street. There are lots of businesses and shops along each side.
I chose to stop at Laguna Village, the quaint and colorful shops were very inviting. Offering oil paintings, hand painted glassware, jewelry, sea shells, Russian Nesting dolls and so much more.
It’s very welcoming with it’s rustic beach cottage buildings which promises to me some fun shopping!
I love all the colors!
This shop was amazing with all it’s Russian Nesting Dolls/Dogs/Lions/Santa Clauses…etc.
This is my favorite shop. I adore all the painted glassware!
It wouldn’t be complete without the sea shells, this is Laguna Beach afterall 🙂
When you are tired of shopping, have a seat!
That was the extent of my shopping experience in Laguna Beach as I had just finished walking the beaches of Crystal Cove. A nap back at the beach cottage seems a good idea right about now 🙂
