With Summer approaching, Newport Beach is one of the most exciting coastal communities in Southern California. Similar to Malibu, Newport Beach has beautiful scenery, famous personalities, and hot and fashionable people. It’s also a romantic get-away for people leaving the inland empire for a day at the beach. Newport Beach has beachfront bars, clubs, and restaurants and if you want you can even explore Newport Beach’s Venitian style canals, walk the boardwalks, or throw out a fishing pole on the pier.
If you have kids, you can take them to the fun Balboa fun zone. At the fun zone, they have arcades, rides, a kid friendly museum, and of course, the famous chocolate covered frozen banana was said to have originated from this area. For an inexpensive boat ride, you can take the ferry across the channel. On the other side is the island. The island has gift shops, and a fun small town feel.
Best way to travel around Newport Beach is definitely by bike. You can rent a bike on the beach for a very inexpensive price. They have bikes for all parties, single bikes, tandem bikes, and even Flinstone 4 person bikes. The bike trail presses up against the sand and stretches from the tip to the base of the peninsula. There are many places to explore on the peninsula so your bike ride every time is an adventure.
Not into the party life or want to get away for some peace and quiet? Check out Crystal cove. Crystal Cove is a great place to hike and mountain bike. From the hills you have stunning scenery of the aqua blue cove below. The tide pools are protected which makes Crystal Cove one of the most peaceful and scenic destination hotspots in Southern California. If you really want to absorb nature here, you can rent a bungalow for the weekend, and eat at the Beach Comber. The Beach Comber is a restaurant literally on the beach. It gets cold at night so they are known for their warm blankets, cocktails, and seafood.
Newport Beach is a fun place to surf, or body surf, but if that is not adrenaline packed enough, you can rent a Jet Pack and fly over the ocean. From shopping some of the best malls, to exploring nature, to adrenaline packed fun, Newport Beach is an exciting place to live. With all that excitement around, don’t go home after work! If you live in Newport Beach, get out, and do something.
