The two-mile Laguna boardwalk: imagine the boardwalk on Main Beach that would stretch all the way to Anita Street. All the hotels would have a romantic, safe and quiet pedestrian friendly connection to the main part of town. Laguna would have one more attraction, an amazing promenade for pedestrians, rollerbladers, bicycles, joggers.
My wife, my kids and I love Laguna Beach and we think that many nice hotels, cafes and shops along the south part of Laguna shouldn’t only be connected to the main village via a noisy and dangerous road, which should probably have a tempo 25 limit.
Having lived 30 years in Europe, where every road has two bike paths and two sidewalks and where you don’t have to push a button before getting permission to cross a street, we feel that Laguna is on the right path to becoming safer and friendlier for pedestrians already, but that the boardwalk extension would be an undeniable attraction to connect the beautiful south part of the town.
