Newport Beach, California

Newport Beach is a seaside city in Orange County, California, United States. Newport Beach population was 85,287 at the 2010 census. Newport Beach is also home to Newport Harbor. Newport Beach’s median family income and property values consistently place high in national rankings. The Daily Pilot, a newspaper published in the neighboring city of Costa Mesa but which serves the greater Newport-Mesa community, reported in 2010 that more than a quarter of households have an income greater than $200,000, and the median value for homes exceeds $1 million. Newport Beach is known as the most Republican city in California.

Newport Beach is known for its fine residential areas, modern shopping facilities, strong business community and quality school system. Newport Beach surrounds Newport Bay where approximately 4,300 boats of all types are docked within the 21-square-mile harbor area. The bay area and the City’s eight miles of ocean beach offer outstanding fishing, swimming, surfing, and aquatic sports activities. The City of Newport Beach was incorporated September 1, 1906 and the current City Charter was adopted in 1954. Newport Beach operates under a Council-Manager form of government. Newport Beach seven City Council Members are elected by district, but are voted on by the population as a whole. They serve four-year terms. The Council consists of the Mayor and six other members and is responsible for policy-making, passing local ordinances, adopting the budget, appointing committees and hiring the City Manager, City Attorney, and City Clerk. The City Manager is responsible for carrying out the policies and ordinances of the City Council, for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the City, and for appointing heads of departments.

The Peninsula is a three-mile stretch bordered by Newport Harbor on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Newport Beach is famous for “the Wedge,” arguably one of the best bodysurfing sites in the world and the Ocean Front Walk, one of the region’s most popular boardwalks. At the foot of Newport Pier lies the historic McFadden Square, named for the family that helped found the city and the Dory Fishing Fleet, where local fisherman bring in fresh seafood daily. Approximately one mile south of the Newport Pier is the Balboa, another of the city’s villages. Balboa includes the Balboa Pier, the Balboa Fun Zone, and the historic Balboa Pavilion. Catch the Balboa Ferry from here for the short ride over to Balboa Island.

Walkable villages of Newport Beach are the village areas of Corona del Mar and Balboa Island is ideal for walking to explore the shops and restaurants. Some other areas of interest include Balboa Village area between the ferry and the pier, and the area encompassing Newport Pier, McFadden Square, Cannery Village and Lido Village. Newport Beach has two farmers’ markets: Saturday mornings in Corona Del Mar, at the corner of Marguerite and Pacific Coast Highway; and Sunday mornings in Lido Village, where Via Oporto is closed to traffic. The farmers market at Via Oporto has great ratings and provides great food through around 15 vendors. Newport Beach is also tremendously beautiful scenery with redbrick roads hidden from the constant traffic congestion of Newport.
