Named for its magnificent beaches, Newport Beach draws ocean-going tourists in droves. The California town is an ideal beach destination. Take in the scene by taking a walk or biking down the city's boardwalk, a concrete path that provides access to the beach and fun outdoor shopping. Tour the city along this path, and then head to one of Newport Beach's two piers for a panoramic view of the Pacific. The Balboa Pavilion is also a great waterfront stop along the way, offering visitors a marine recreation facility where they can gather for socializing and whale watching, or rent water sporting equipment.

Off the beach, the city offers many urban getaway options as well. Newport Center is a place to shop, eat, or find local entertainment. Known as "Fashion Island" by the locals, visitors can find many upscale stores and shopping centers here. Sports lovers will enjoy the Newport Sports Museum, which is home to more than 10,000 pieces of sports memorabilia. And for the kids and the young-at-heart, the Balboa Fun Zone provides an amusement park full of rides and arcade games, complete with ferris wheel and merry-go-round for visitors of all ages to enjoy.

No matter if you decide to spend your acation days on one of Newport's many beaches, or exploring a few of the city's activities and shopping centers, Newport Beach is sure to be a destination that will make every type of traveler happy.
