NEWPORT BEACH, a breath of paradise

Newport Beach, California

Newport Beach is indeed home to many great bars and restaurants, long and beautiful beaches perfect for a day of sightseeing, phenomenal climate and a wealth of shopping opportunities. It took us about an hour to get there, but I’m so glad we made it to this little gem – I felt I was on vacation the second I got out of the car. Β Oh California, you’re so good to me.

We parked on 15th Street and walked all the way to the pier in search of some local food. The beach was very clean, and we had amazing views of the boardwalk, beach-front houses and the shoreline. Once again, it felt like the perfect summer day. Families were out with their kids playing at the park, teenagers were riding their beach cruiser bikes along the boardwalk, lots of couples were laying down on their backyards with an ice-cold beer on their hands while enjoying the views of the ocean, and tourists (like me) were just blown away by the beauty we saw at every turn. There was an overwhelming sense of peace everywhere,Β I could very easily stay and call Newport Beach my new home…

We stopped at Balboa Pier to eat delicious fish & chips at a local restaurant, watch kids having fun at the little amusement park and enjoy the views of the stunning yachts that were decorating the quaint houses. The entire island has an old world charm to itself and a very relaxing atmosphere that it’s worth to experience. If you are around the area, don’t miss the chance to visit this island and take a little trip Β back in time!

    • Thank you so much India! I’m so glad you like what you see here. I’m sure we will discover a lot of new places in LA through our blogs, we can give each other some recommendations πŸ™‚ How long have you been living here?

    • I saw a lot of people jogging on the boardwalk last Sunday, it looked like a good beach to work out. I’m sure Newport Beach landscapes and views would make your 17 miles running challenges a little bit easier! πŸ˜‰

      • Yes, no doubt! I love running along the ocean! As close as I can get in North Texas is White Rock Lake. It has a 9 mile loop around it that’s popular with runners. I’m there quite often running laps!
