The community of Upper Victoria Beach in Laguna Beach, California, is a wonderful place to enjoy the sand and spectacular ocean views. Residents even have access to a tunnel that travels under the Pacific Coast Highway, and connects directly to the beach.
Upper Victoria is located east of the highway and on Victoria Beach’s non-ocean side. The high bluffs, ocean views, and stunning sunsets make this area highly desirable. And these homes are more affordable than many other areas in the city. Residents are within walking distance to their neighbors in Victoria Beach, which has one of Laguna Beach’s most private beaches. A popular tower which was built in 1926, is a well known landmark. Upper Victoria is close to many shops and restaurants, as well as the famous resort of Montage and the Casa Laguna Inn & Spa.
This neighborhood is served the Laguna Beach Unified School District, with highly ranked facilities such as Top of the World Elementary School, Thurston Middle School, and Laguna Beach High School. The city offers several private schools including Anneliese’s School, Montessori School of Laguna Beach, and St. Catherine of Siena Parish School. The Laguna College of Art & Design (LCAD) offers degrees in illustration, graphic design, painting and drawing, and game art.
The seaside resort city of Laguna Beach is popular for its artistic environment, scenic coves, and mild weather year round as well as its architectural style. This area’s housing market has one of the highest concentrations of classic, soft, and ultra contemporary homes. Tourism is the biggest economical contributor, with over three million visitors to this region each year. There are many festivals including the Festival of Arts, the Bluewater Music Festival, and the Sawdust Art Festival. Surfing is also very popular, of course, with the Brooks Street Surfing Classic, which was first held in 1955. The event only happens during a small window of opportunity, because the ocean conditions have to be just right.
