Welcome to Time Out
The best of Newport Beach
Sure, yachts, canals and luxury cars are common sightings in Newport Beach, but so too are whales, waves and pristine patches of sand. Many visit the oceanfront area for a taste of opulence, but the best things to do in Newport Beach extend beyond the posh Orange County city’s tony shopping centers and country clubs. Situated between the surfer-filled shores in Huntington Beach and the stunning canyons of Laguna Beach, Newport Beach and its pathwork of man-made islands offer a mix of luxury living with some of best beaches in SoCal. Experience a mix of it all with these things to do in Newport Beach. Done something on this list and loved it? Share it with the hashtag #TimeOutDoList and tag @TimeOutEverywhere.
