Boaters, surfers, shoppers, and sun-worshippers can all find their own brand of California fun in classy Newport Beach.
Luxuriate in views, white sand between your toes, and rejuvenating sunsets with a visit to one of the city beaches, Corona del Mar State Beach, or Crystal Cove State Park. For some of the best waves around, wax your surfboard and head to the beaches between the Newport Pier and the Santa Ana River, or try bodyboarding at The Wedge. Whether you have an invitation to the yacht club or prefer to rent your own skiff, the Newport Harbor and Aquatic Center provide the perfect starting points for maritime adventure. Bird-watchers and recreational hikers won’t want to miss the trails near Back Bay or the Upper Newport Bay Ecological Reserve.
Wind down even more with a quick trip on the Balboa Island Ferry to Balboa Island to explore its famous Pavilion, high-end shopping, dining, and amusement park rides that’ll have you screaming for more. The Newport Center also features delightful shops and restaurants, as well as the Orange County Museum of Art, which exhibits many Californian artists and provides a refreshing respite from the sun. At night, the nightlife near the Pier picks up and the sherbert-colored Lido Theatre screens a variety of indie and art house films. In a destination with this much going on, you’ll find that the days often bleed into the nights.
