Tourism brings millions of people to the seaside resort city of Laguna Beach a year for the surfing, artistic environment, scenic coves, and mild weather year round. The Brooks Street Surfing Classic has been held here since 1955, but only when the conditions are right for the biggest waves. And there is only a four month period each year in which this is possible. People also come from all around the world, because the topography is perfect for mountain biking.
