Last Thursday, the gang and I headed to Aliso Beach. It's located at the southern part of Laguna and it's a great little place for a beach day. There is parking but it is limited so I would suggest that you either get there early or in the late afternoon. Also bring plenty of dollar bills. The parking meters only accept dollars and quarters so be prepared. Parking is a dollar an hour.
I think this is a great family beach because everything is so accessible. I've been to beaches where you have to trek down for a ways or there are no restrooms nearby but Aliso is perfect because the sand is literally 100 feet away from the parking lot, there are nice clean restrooms with working showers and all this within a short walking distance, which makes it easy to bring a cooler, chairs, etc.. We had a great time and headed north to Downtown Laguna and finished off with some people watching and a great sunset view from the Jack in the Box on PCH. It was a fun, cheap day that the kids will not soon forget.
