Newport Beach reflects the true essence of Southern California coastal living, making it a terrific place to live and work.
Newport Beach is like a French Impressionistic painting--it's a magical place with views so stunning, they hardly seem real. Like the Rock of Gibraltar or the French Riviera, cars line up on weekends filled with visitors seeking opportunities to share the dream on a five mile stretch of land referred to locally as the Newport or Balboa Peninsula. Intimate sand beaches, a jetty called "The Wedge" where surfers test their skills, two piers, the Fun Zone, Balboa Pavilion, Newport-Balboa Ferry boat, harbor cruises, boat rentals and trips to Catalina Island are but a few of the attractions for people of all ages.
Newport Beach is located 50 miles south of Los Angeles and 85 miles north of San Diego in Orange County. With nearly 22 square miles of ocean and bay, including several islands, the city offers the greatest variety and number of restaurants with water view dining in all of Orange County. Balboa Pavilion is a registered historic structure built in 1905 to coincide with completion of the Pacific Electric Red Car Line. In its early years, it featured big band and swing music with prominent musicians of that era playing in the ballroom.
Framed by the Saddleback Mountains, scenic Newport Beach also has an ecological reserve in the Back Bay which is popular with birders. Stay at the Marriott Suites overlooking the bay, where you can hike, bike, jog and watch birds.
This charming little beach community has a scenic walkway that encircles the island, with the picturesque homes on one side and small sandy beaches and boating slips on the waterside. Boutique shops and restaurants line Marine Avenue. There are two stands that are famous for their balboa bars and frozen bananas (both dipped in chocolate and rolled in the topping of your choice.
Summers bring outdoor jazz concerts to the center. The Hyatt Newporter plays host to an annual line up of jazz artists in summer concerts and also hosts several tennis tournaments.
