April 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

Newport Beach is situated along the beautiful California coast. Located just 55 miles from L.A. and 85 miles from San Diego, the town is conveniently situated. The population of 83,210 people is split up into nine distinct neighborhoods that make up the city—each with their own appeal. Newport Beach apartments can be found in all of these areas:

  • Airport District
  • Fashion Island
  • Corona Del Mar
  • Balboa (and the surrounding islands)
  • Mariner’s Mile
  • Cannery Village
  • Back Bay
  • Balboa Peninsula
  • Newport Coast/Crystal Cove

From film festivals to surf lessons, there is always plenty to do in Newport Beach. The large harbor creates a beautiful backdrop for part of the city, adding a nautical feel to the town. There are plenty of cultural venues in the area as well, including the Balboa Performing Arts Theater, the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum and the Orange County Performing Arts Center. Boat parades, sporting events and a host of interesting shops and restaurants add to the appeal of this coastal town.
