Crystal Cove through the Years

Imagine for a moment, how different Orange County would have been without our beautiful Crystal Cove…Without the Irvine Ranch, early film making history, the plein air art that has been captured here for over 100 years, without the original cove squatters who lovingly constructed these historic little beach cottages, without our childhood memories of Crystal Cove, the stables and Scotchman’sCove, without that breathtaking panoramic VISTA as we drive down Pacific Coast. Several times, almost lost, and now saved, for future generations. Take a moment and step back in time and celebrate the Crystal Cove that we all love!
