About Newport Beach, CA / Additional Info

Newport Beach is a thriving residential and vacation community built on leisure, natural beauty, and sophistication. The city comprises nine distinct neighborhoods, each of which brings its own unique culture and charm to the area. Multi-million-dollar mansions and historic homes, fine-dining establishments and seaside snack shacks, and high-fashion shops and eclectic boutiques are among the diverse options that create the California cool vibe for which Newport Beach is known. With all it has to offer, it's no surprise that Newport Beach was named one of the top 10 resort towns in the nation by AOL Travel.

As the name implies, one of the area's most popular attractions is the beach itself. With nine miles of coastline, Newport Beach is home to great spots such as Corona del Mar State Beach and Crystal Cove State Park, the shooting location of the popular 1988 film Beaches. In addition to its three snorkel-friendly beaches, Crystal Cove features a unique historic district that's been restored and furnished with period decor. For a real ocean thrill, guests can head to south on Balboa Island to see The Wedge, one of the most famous wave-producing areas in California, if not the country. These incredible waves make the spot a bodysurfing hot spot, though guests can easily stay out of danger by watching from the safety of West Jetty View Park.

Newport Beach offers plenty of chances for outdoor play back on land as well. Hit the links at one of the area's picturesque golf courses, or rent a Segway or Vespa and enjoy a ride along the scenic Pacific Coast Highway. Newport Beach also offers plenty of opportunities for guests to enjoy a competitive sport of an entirely different nature: shopping. Stop by Fashion Island, home to over 200 specialty shops and boutiques, or pick up authentic surfwear and fun souvenirs at the unique shops lining the Boardwalk at Newport Pier.

After a day in the sun, visitors can kick back with a relaxing meal at one of Newport Beach's more than 300 diverse eateries. Restaurants such as the Crab Cooker and The Cannery guarantee the freshest Pacific-caught seafood, while French, Asian, and Mexican specialties can be found at establishments such as Bistro Le Crillon, Fuji Yama and SOL Cocina. Make sure to cap off any meal with a cool, creamy Balboa Bar. Originating at Newport Beach's Balboa Island, this vanilla ice cream bar is dipped in chocolate and covered in any number of toppings and is the specialty at many shops along the island's Marine Avenue, including Dad's Donut & Bakery Shop and Sugar 'n Spice.
