Besides all the beautiful California beaches, there is tons of family fun to be had in Orange County, California; specifically Laguna Beach. So if you’re looking for Laguna Beach family activities, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to find out all the attractions, beaches, playgrounds, and much more that Laguna Beach California has to offer for family activities.

California’s Orange County has a million family activities, but one; Laguna Coast Wilderness Park is home to Laguna Canyon, tidepools, sea lions and tons of kid-friendly activities.  Laguna Coast Wilderness Park’s 7,000 acres are part of the South Coast Wilderness area, comprised of Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park, Crystal Cove State Park, The City of Irvine Open Space, and Laguna Coast Wilderness Park (totaling almost 20,000 acres).

Aliso Beach and Playground is recommended by most families as it’s not as crowded as the main beach, and is also close to the Montage Laguna Beach Resort.  It doesn’t have steps and ramps like most other beaches, has a great playground, and is close to Treasure Island Park.  See all about the kid friendly Aliso Beach and Playground here at beachcalifornia.com .

This center is a great place to take the kids, not only for entertainment value, but the educational value as well. The PMMC (Pacific Marine Mammal Center) is interesting and exciting at the same time, kids will love it. Check out more about PMMC Laguna Beach California family activities below:

Dinosaur Park

Dinosaur Park is the most common name I’ve heard for this amazing fossil-themed park behind the Laguna Hills Community Center at the corner of Alicia and Paseo De Valencia. I’ve also heard it called: Dino Park, Prehistoric Park, and Fossil Reef Park. It’s a great run-around park with 2 different levels and all sorts of play equipment.
