It’s an upscale and open-air shopping plaza located in the middle of town that routinely attracts shoppers from all over. It even is home to the nation’s largest Christmas tree, for the final month of the calendar year.

After all, sun seekers have been flocking to this West Coast staple for years.  The popular beaches include the city-owned beaches, the state-owned Corona del Mar and Crystal Cove State Park.  If you’re scheduling some beach time, don’t just plan on catching some rays, plan on catching some waves, too!  Newport Beach is world famous for their surfing, body boarding and bodysurfing.  If you’d just like a good spot to watch the surfers, find a bench on the Newport Pier and post up for the day.
