Monthly Historic District Walking Tour

Join us on the 2nd Saturday of each month for a tour of the Crystal Cove State Park Historic District. The tour will be led by Laura Davick, Founder & Director of External Affairs of Crystal Cove Alliance, the non-profit that was instrumental in saving the cottages for public use. As a former life-long resident of the Historic District, Laura brings a wealth of personal experience, and you will learn about Crystal Cove’s history, its rescue and the future plans for Crystal Cove State Park.


Information will also be provided about the final 17 cottages awaiting restoration, innovative education and conservation programs, membership, and hot tips for cottage rentals. You will also learn how YOU can get involved by becoming a member of Crystal Cove Alliance to benefit Crystal Cove State Park and the many restoration, education, and conservation programs that you and your family will enjoy!
