Newport Beach, California is a world-renowned coastal resort area with miles of picture-postcard beaches and a 10,000-slip harbor that is one of the world's premier yacht moorages. The city is home to more than 70,000 permanent residents and the population swells to more than 100,000 in the summer. The temperate climate, with average highs in the 80's in the summer and the 60's in the winter, makes outdoor recreation like golf, tennis and deep sea fishing available year-round.
Beaches are as picturesque as their names - Pirate's Cove, China Cove, Little Corona and The Wedge--abound. They offer something for everyone: from secluded coves and tide pools to monster shore breaks. From the grassy greenbelt on the Avenue, you can sit and watch the boats sail by.
With two piers, several manmade islands--some home to millionaire industrialists and developers---a working ferry, a nautical museum, an arcade-era amusement park, and a fleet or dory fisherman who market each morning's catch in open-air stalls, the area has it all.
But it's not all play. Newport is also a Mecca for technology. When the business day is over, there is no lack of entertainment. Picking a restaurant can be a major chore--there are more than 300 of them in the city and hundreds more surround it. They range from casual beach fare to five-star gourmet dining.
Culturally, Newport Beach boasts the Orange County Art Museum with its collection of cutting edge art. The Orange County Performing Arts Center, with ballet opera and symphony, is only a few minutes away in Costa Mesa.
Newport Beach got its start when enterprising developers built the landmark Balboa Pavilion as a bathhouse in 1906 to greet those arriving on the Pacific Electric Railroad's Big Red Car. The Victorian-style building still stands, a visual connection between dreamers past and present.
