Newport Beach & Pier
Newport Beach has a special meaning to every 90’s girl that watched the TV show “The OC”. I can’t remember how many times I’ve watched each episode. And it was back then when I decided that I was going to live in California one day.
There’s just so much to do and see here that I will divide Newport into different posts. One of my favorite places, the Crystal Cove State Park, already has its own post here in the blog, make sure to check it out as well! Today it’s all about the Newport Beach / Pier area.
"The Newport beach stretches for 5 miles and offers plenty of activities for the entire family: boating, fishing, surfing and swimming, just to name a few."
Newport sits in between Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach, with easy access to John Wayne Airport and the I405. The scenic route is always via PCH and totally worth it.
The Newport Beach stretches for 5 miles and offers plenty of activities for the entire family: boating, fishing, surfing and swimming, just to name a few. There is also a paved trail by the beach that runs for several miles, allowing biking, skating, and walking/running with views of some of the most expensive real estate in Orange County. Good to know: Many of the houses here are available for summer rentals.
The Newport Pier is over 1000 feet long, and was rebuilt in 1940 after a hurricane destroyed it in 1939. Today, it is a popular place among visitors and locals. The blocks surrounding the pier offer various dining and shopping options. Our favorite stops are: Charlie's Chilli, Dory Deli and Banzai Bowls!
