Newport Beach, home to the port of Newport and Balboa Island, is fifty miles from Los Angeles, fourteen miles from Disneyland in Anaheim and thirty miles from Catalina Island. It's a great place to get away from it all, but have it anyway. It is a small, approximately 72,000 population, rich affluent city surrounded by major attractions.
Rent an apartment or villa, stay at a cheap motel, park your RV at Newport Dunes Resort & Marina, go to a mid-range hotel or pamper yourself at a luxury hotel like Balboa Bay Club & Resort that shares the same address as Balboa Bay Club ("Balboa Bay The Club, which boasts a star-studded history, with a guest registry with signature luminaries including John Wayne, Ronald and Nancy Regan, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Robert Wagner, Natalie Wood and many more. "), Four Seasons, Hyatt Regency , Mariott or the Balboa Hotel.
Dine at one of the many great restaurants such as Newport Landing Restaurant ("Newport Landing is Newport Beach. Located in the Bay overlooking the historic Balboa Ferry with panoramic views of Newport Harbor, Balboa Island, Newport Center and the distant peaks of Saddleback"). "), The Ritz Restaurant & Garden (" Synonymous with elegance, friendly service and award-winning cuisine. "), The Hyatt Regency Newport Beach Salt Restaurant (featuring Caribbean, South Pacific and Gulf of Mexico cuisines.), Woody & Wharf ("Live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. Off-site parking is available for boaters.") Or The Harbouride Restaurant and Grand Ballroom ("Known for its world-renowned dome and illuminated by more than 1,400 white lights, the Balboa Pavilion served as a beach lighthouse Newport for almost a century. ") These are just some of the best restaurants in Newport Beach.
Spend some time on the clean sandy beaches, cruise the big smooth water port while touring large yachts and multi-million dollar homes, rent a sport fishing boat, rent a sailboat, have fun or get married on a rented yacht, take a gondola ride, visit the county art museum Orange, visit many souvenir shops, art galleries and cafes on the sidewalk on Balboa Island, visit the sidewalks and restaurants on Newport Pier, visit or take a swim in Pirates Bay, which is best known for shooting Gilligans Island, hiking, horseback riding, scuba diving or surfing Crystal Cove State Park or drive to Catalina Island.
If for some reason you still need to do more, you will find Disneyland in Anaheim, the Knott Berry Farm and the Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park and golf courses nearby.
