Food Scene
Easy parking, decent happy hour and great menu. The owner also has two great restaurants in Laguna Beach: Watermarc and 230 Forest. I recommend both.

If you've eaten well here, as you should, you may want to burn some calories and get the blood flowing. This is my crossfit gym and they have a very manageable Friends and Family workout most Saturdays at 10 am!

Parks & Nature
Main beach is a great place to get your bearings for the coast, plus it is just a beautiful place to stroll, people watch or just sit on the beach and relax. Be sure to walk the 'boardwalk' north for a good cliff-side view of the coast and if you time it at sunset, you'll be glad you did.

On the waterside, Crystal Cove is a 3 mile long beach with a great restaurant (Beachcomber) on the beach and a cliff-side good food stand with incredible views (The Shake Shack). If you eat at the restaurant, parking in the Los Trancos parking lot is free/validated. Inland, Crystal Cove state park is great for hiking. You can find 60 minute to three hour routes and almost all of them will include an ocean view. Bring sunscreen and a hat - there is very little shade in this park!

Sightseeing
Built in 1776, the Mission is a great way to see some history of the area and understand more about how the area was settled. San Juan has nice shops, restaurants and bars with live music, too.
