7 Activities for Day Tripping with Your Family to Laguna Beach

When you take a trip to Laguna Beach, you want it to be epic, but epicness doesn’t just happen like in the movies. You have to make it happen. 

It can be easy to make it happen with a little bit of expert advice, which is where we come in. The following guide should help you plan your family day trip better. So pack your family’s surf wagon, your freshest Béis diaper bag backpack for the little ones, and get ready to have a blissed-out day in the OC.

Water Sports

You are going to be by the beach, and that means you should get your family involved with water sports. You’ve got a surfboard, so you should do a little surfing, but there’s more to do. Your family can do a little deep-sea diving, waterskiing, or try a little sailing. Even if you’ve never done any of these before, you can have your family learn while you’re out in Laguna Beach.

Take a Stroll

Maybe you don’t want to do water sports every day, and that’s okay. You could do what other folks do when they go to Laguna Beach, which is go for a hike. Heisler Park welcomes you and offers a beautiful view of the coastline down here. Not only do you get to see nature’s work of art, but you’ll also see several public art pieces as you walk down the park. You might want to take enough food to have a picnic because you and your family will probably get a little hungry with all that walking.

Trolley Exploration

Maybe you and your family want to take a trip through the town in a trolley. The good thing is you can do that in the City of Laguna Beach because a trolley is provided to the people of the city and visitors. The trolley is free to ride, provided you catch it at the right time. For example, on Fridays, you and your family can ride the trolley for free as long as you’re riding between 4 and 11 at night. If you prefer to see the city in the morning, then try Saturday when you get a free ride between 11 in the morning and 11 at night. 

Tide Pool Visitation

If you want your family to get a chance to see sea life, then consider visiting the Laguna Beach tide pools. These only happen when the tide is low enough, but they offer a glimpse of sea life that’s worth seeing. Stop at the visitor center to get more information about the tide pools before you head over there. You’ll probably get a brochure telling you when to go and what kind of sea life you might see in these tide pools. It’s better to go when it’s safe because these bodies of water can be unpredictable. 

Whales and Dolphins

You and your family could take a cruise off the coastline to see dolphins and whales. The population of amazing creatures in this part of the world is pretty healthy. You’ll see them swimming around you, and you might even see them jumping from the water if you’re lucky, of course. Remember, don’t just accept the price of the first cruise company you see. Check out a few cruise companies to make sure you and your family are getting the best deal possible. 

Fire Pit Night

Maybe you want to have some s’mores on the beach with your family, and this is something you can do. If you go down to Aliso Beach Park, you’ll find fire pits that are free for the public to use. You might want to get there early to make sure you’re able to get one unless you’re thinking of just waiting to see if another family is willing to share. Bring all your supplies to make your s’mores or to do a little firepit grilling. 

Sweet Tooth

There are two amazing places to visit if you want your kids to enjoy something sweet. There’s The Chocolate Soldier and the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Both places have a variety of sweets that you or your family won’t forget. Everything is handmade, and they are quite special. Of course, you probably shouldn’t let your kids overindulge too much, but that’s going to be quite challenging after you see how beautiful some of the chocolate pieces are. 

These are just some activities you can enjoy on your day trip to Laguna Beach. When you take your trip out here, make sure you give your family more than enough time to explore everything there is.
