New Co-op in Laguna Beach

New Co-op in Laguna Beach

Anyone familiar with Orange County’s 1960s folklore knows that Laguna Beach was the center of Southern California’s underground hippie scene.

 

In fact, that center had a street address: 670 S. Coast Hwy., where, just after the 1967 Summer of Love, a head shop, art gallery, book store and exotic-goods retailer opened its doors. Mystic Arts World, as the place was known, was also essentially a front for the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, the legendary group of surfers and smugglers who for a time operated the nation’s largest hashish and LSD network.”
