Every Friday on the KX FM 104.7 Morning show with Tyler Russell, international TV and radio personality Lynda Halligan stops by the KX FM 104.7 Pearl Street studio for a Top 5 countdown.

The heat and humidity of summer inspired Lynda to present this week’s Top 5 on the best places to cool down with a cold treat in Laguna Beach:

5) Gelato Paradiso (448 S Coast Hwy, between Nick’s & Tortilla Republic)

This place makes their waffle cones fresh every day. The smell alone proves that their ice cream and gelato is worth the out-the-door lines at peak snack time.
