After an al fresco lunch at one of the endless array of excellent eateries, the whole afternoon is in front of you to check out the art scene in Laguna Beach, pier activates in Newport, a long walk with a gorgeous sunset in Huntington or whale watching on a rented boat in Dana Point. Just make sure you stay high n’ dry allowing you to go straight to dinner and enjoy some seafood fare the area is famously known for.
