Title: A Beautiful History / Laguna Beach


1
LAGUNA BEACH
  • A Beautiful History

2
  • Located in sunny Southern California, Laguna
    Beach is known for its beautiful shores and
    year-round warm climate.
  • The community of this coastline town is as varied
    as the art that is created along the shores.
  • On the following pages we are going to uncover
    the history of Laguna Beach.

3
SETTLING IN
  • Surrounded by rolling hills and a long stretch of
    beach, the territory has always been able to stay
    isolated from the hustle and bustle of urban
    development.
  • The first people began settling in the 1870s, and
    in 1887 it was officially founded, but it wasnt
    until 1927 when it was incorporated as the City
    of Laguna Beach.

4
ART
  • The blue waves, the sandy beaches, the rolling
    hills, and the soaring bluffs called artists from
    far and wide by the early 1900s.

It was inevitable that Lagunas art colony would
create a distinctive style branded California
Impressionism. The first art gallery opened in
1918 it is now known as the Laguna Beach Art
Museum.
5
PICTURESQUE
  • Filmmakers, photographers, and writers were also
    inspired by Lagunas scenery and community.
    Starting in the 1910s, dozens of silent films
    were shot in this quiet haven.
  • Movie stars and starlets of the era were known
    for lounging around the town and mingling with
    its 300 residents while on breaks from their long
    productions.

6
GROWING
  • For years, this small town existed in relative
    isolation, with Laguna Canyon Road being its only
    access.
  • In 1926, the Pacific Coast Highway was completed
    and the population shot up to 1,900.
  • By the time the 60s came around, Laguna Beach had
    quadrupled in area and had over 10,000 people.

7
NEW WAVES
  • The culture of Laguna has always been very
    eclectic people of all walks of life have been
    beckoned to this seaside city.
  • In the late 60s, Laguna Beach became a focal
    point of Californias alternative scene.
  • In the present day, Laguna Beach has a populace
    of 24,000, where bohemians and creative people
    live alongside the wealthy.

8
A CLIMATE FOR FUN RELAXATION
  • Its not hard to see why so many people flock to
    these shores.
  • Laguna Beach has a mild Mediterranean climate,
    clear skies year-round, a low annual
    precipitation level, and the water ranges between
    60 F in February to 75 F in September.
