How about Santa Monica? It's not a resort town but has great hotels along the beach like Shutters or Loews plus there are plenty of places to walk around like Third Street Promoenade or Main Street that your teenager would absolutely love
Thanks - been to SM many times - this would be a different trip
i live and work in both the laguna and newport area and am having a hard time figuring out which is better for a teenager even though i have one!
the places are so close. my daughter prefers the beaches of laguna with her friends and the shopping at fashion island in newport. she also spends more time at the restaurants in laguna and we love the montage and ritz carlton resorts.
how about a visit further south towards san diego...perhaps del mar, la jolla?
