We had a great time in Laguna Beach for Valentine's weekend, which happens to be a very short drive from where we live, but staying the night made it possible to enjoy the sunset. We typically go on a Saturday for a few hours but never really stay for the evening. Being walking distance from all my favorite places to eat wasn't bad either! The only tricky part was sneaking Scotch into the hotel but we pulled it off flawlessly...until the maid finds his bone that we accidentally left. oops.
Thanks for reading!
