We had an amazing time exploring Dana Point for a quick weekend trip. It is a beach town next to Laguna Beach. We stayed at the elegant Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel where the views of the beach coves and bluffs were simply stunning, and the service was excellent too. Prior to the gold rush, this area was considered by Richard Dana as the most beautiful spot on the California coast and I can definitely see why. Whales migrate through here all year, so we decided to hop on a boat and saw a humpback whale and hundreds of dolphins. Hope you like the highlights from our trip!
