On our recent visit to Southern California, we found three new restaurants worthy of note, two in Laguna Beach and one in Newport Beach.
We went on two whale-watching tours: one in the Channel Islands, off the coast of Santa Barbara, and another, farther south, off Newport Beach.
After assessing several small hotels in the heart of Los Angeles, a little time along the coast seemed like just the thing. One hotel in Malibu made the cut.
Each beach has its own character and crowd (or lack thereof). Our editor evaluated several beaches along a scenic stretch of Southern California.
Acqualina Resort & Spa in Miami Beach earned first place for the second year in a row, adding a third award for the hotel this year.

Caryn, our Staff Accountant, just returned from a short two-night vacation in Laguna Beach, California. Learn more about her Laguna Beach experience.
