Overpriced Dingy City
Overdevelopment has ruined the city, Housing is overpriced - overseas investors, corporate housing, sober living houses (there are many throughout the city) and AirB&B have erased the neighborhood feel. The beach is dirty and gets dirtier with all the major beach events. Offshore drilling platforms pollute the beaches and every few days the gases released by the oil platforms creates an awful smell. In the last 2 years, air jet traffic has increased as neighboring City of Newport Beach won a lawsuit diverting air traffic from their city. People who invest here tend to overlook these problems and say we live in paradise because they do not want to decrease their property value. Laguna Beach is a better coastal town.
