Ironically, being voted the best in this case will lesson the benefits which elevated Dana Point in the first place. It will become even more crowded on PCH. Parking lots will become full earlier and longer. More beach trash. More hassles. More tension. More rudeness. More drunks. More like Santa Monica or Venice.
