Planning a Roadtrip to Laguna Beach? Stay at These Eco-Friendly Hotels


Trending Now


Situated alongside the stunning Orange County coastline, and nestled perfectly between Los Angeles and San Diego, Laguna Beach makes for an amazing kid-friendly road trip. The dreamy beach town boasts glistening beaches and coves, awe-inspiring cultural- and arts-related events and miles’ worth of hiking and biking trails for even the most active families.

Known for its environmental preservation efforts, Laguna Beach is also the only city in California whose entire coast is a Marine Protected Area–meaning it’s free from boating and fishing zones. The seaside getaway is committed to protecting all marine life, which has led to improvements and restoration of the local ecology. Your kiddos can immerse themselves in the beauty of nature and learn more about the environment surrounding them, all while having fun.

If that hasn’t convinced you to add this beloved destination to your summer (or fall!) road trip bucket list, think of the delectable seafood dishes, gnarly surfing (or boogie board!) adventures, the picturesque sea caves and natural tide pools, and relaxing beachfront lodging options, like Laguna Riviera and SCP Seven4one.

With hassle-free access to both the beach and downtown Laguna Beach, Soul Community Planet (SCP) Hotels have two neighboring hotel options for you to choose from for your perfect Southern California getaway. Laguna Riviera offers a taste of classic Laguna Beach culture directly on the sand, while SCP Seven4One offers an intimate eco-contemporary boutique setting (perfect for group gatherings and family reunions) that is steps from the shore. Read on to choose your ideal Laguna Beach adventure today.

1. Relax and Revitalize

No trip to Laguna Beach is complete without exploring the shore. Guests at both Laguna Riviera and SCP Seven4One have access to full-service beach attendants, allowing you to simply walk down to the water and enjoy your day. Camp out on your lounge chair and watch your children play in the sand, or bring a picnic to enjoy in the shade under your beach umbrella.

When you return to your room, sun-kissed and sandy, get ready for a deep night’s sleep (or a restful midday nap). At SCP Seven4One, minimalist rooms promote a good night’s rest by reducing your exposure to blue light before bed and providing spa-like amenities that ensure you’re tranquil. Think: Sound machines, essential oil diffusers, air purifier, glow light, calming pillow mist and electronic-free rooms (that means no TVs!). At Laguna Riviera, the natural environment sets the mood – there’s really nothing better than falling asleep to ocean breezes and the gentle crash of waves. The entire family will wake up well-rested and ready to experience the day’s adventures.

2. Views Breathtaking Sunrises and Sunsets

Both Laguna Riviera and SCP Seven4One provide beautiful ocean-view suites, so you can wake up early with a cup of coffee in hand and take in the unforgettable sights. Wander out onto the oceanfront lawn at Laguna Riviera for sweeping views of the Pacific, or visit the rooftop deck at SCP Seven4One with a glass of wine from the lobby bar for your perfect sunset perch.

3. Find Yourself Central to Everything

From their neighboring locations, Laguna Riviera and SCP Seven4One are conveniently located on the ocean side of Pacific Coast Highway and within walking distance of great dining, art galleries and entertainment. Your family can easily map out your day without a worry about what to do next. One day, you can enjoy the sparkling waves and the next, explore downtown Laguna Beach for arts and culture that awaits at every corner. Catch the Laguna Beach Trolley at the stop directly in front of Laguna Riviera for an even easier way to explore this unique and colorful community.

4. Discover an Abundance of Wellness Activities

It's no secret that Laguna Beach is a serene destination that allows travelers to leave their worries behind. Toss in a wealth of health and wellness retreats, which are convenient to Laguna Riviera and SCP Seven4One, and moms and dads can truly feel tranquil. From sound baths, yoga and aromatherapy to nature-filled activities like surfing, skimboarding and stand-up paddleboarding, there is something for parents and kids alike.

5. Feel Good About Doing Good

Rest easy knowing that whichever hotel you pick, your stay will have a positive impact on the world around you through SCP Hotels’ “Every Stay Does Good Program.” Every stay booked at their hotels provides one child with well-being tools and resources to build lifelong mental health skills, lights the home of a family caring for a critically ill child for one full day and plants one tree in an unnaturally deforested area.
