May is Preservation Month in Laguna Beach, and every year for the last 46 years, Village Laguna has celebrated Laguna’s history with the Charm House Tour. This year, the tour is on Sunday, May 19, and will feature five North Laguna homes, from one of the earliest cottages (1918) through a mid-century modern, to a spectacular contemporary. This year’s tour is aptly named “A Century of Laguna Charm.” Over 100 people volunteer their time on tour day, to greet participants who come from all over the state. There are some devotees who haven’t missed a tour in over 10 years. Others live out of town and each year plan their vacations around this tour. This event proudly presents an inside look at those homes whose owners have graciously agreed to share with the public. The Charm House Tour creates camaraderie and brings people together in appreciation, for one fun-filled day.
There are spoilers in town whose goal is to shut Village Laguna and The Charm House Tour down, with their insinuations that we are not transparent, so that their pro-development agenda can go forward and change the Laguna we know and love. They are demanding that folks do not sign up for The Charm House Tour. Please do come on the tour and see for yourself firsthand what will be lost if we allow the developers to take over our town. Charm House Tour is a day of wonderment and magic, where people can reflect on our charming town and its ambience.
Tickets can be purchased online at Village Laguna’s website, or locally at Cottage Furnishings, Ego Salon, Fawn Memories, Laguna Beach Books or Copy and Print.
Bring your friends and family and enjoy a special and unique afternoon. We hope to see you there!
