This beautiful beach town, just a short drive south along the coast from Los Angeles, offers the perfect mini getaway from the busy city, boasting dog-friendly beaches and restaurants, hiking trails, art exhibits and a variety of breathtaking rooftop bars. Start off your daycation with a hike at Crystal Cove State Park and explore the tide pools, or head over to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center to visit rescued marine mammals. If you love to be active on your days off, take a guided kayak tour to check out hidden beaches, contoured cliffs, the crystal-clear ocean and abundant sea life.

For the art lover, head over to the Laguna Playhouse to catch a play and hop on the free Laguna Beach Trolley to travel along the coast from Laguna Beach to Dana Point. After a long day of fun-filled activities and sunshine, what better way to end your Laguna Beach day than with hand-muddled mojitos while enjoying the best view in all of OC at The Rooftop Lounge at La Casa Del Camino. This dog-friendly rooftop bar offers a young, hip and lively atmosphere with the best panoramic views of the coastline.
