A journey into California’s rich history is always a drive worth taking, and The Murphy-Smith bungalow located in beautiful Laguna Beach provides visitors with the perfect ride back in time.
The Laguna Beach Historical Society has restored the quaint bungalow and opened it up for public viewing. The house was built in 1923 for the Murphy family, who lived in the residence full time. The bungalow is one of the few original beach houses that remain in downtown Laguna, and its restoration has revived the old charm of the tiny building.
The Murphy-Smith bungalow has become a way to live in Laguna’s past, as there are many photographs and memorabilia on display there. Learn a bit about the charming Laguna Beach community inside the ambiance of one of the town’s few original buildings.
The drive to Laguna Beach is a scenic one, if you take the right route. From Los Angeles take the 405 South and cut over to the 1 on the 22 west. That way you can take a majority of the drive right along the coast.
Ensure your journey to Murphy-Smith bungalow is a fun one in a 2013 SLK350 Roadster from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. The quality and performance you get with a Mercedes-Benz will ensure that any drive, no matter the distance is a good one.
