Throughout the vast state of California, Newport Beach remains one of the most overlooked cities. The city of Newport Beach is actually a very charming island, with great beaches and a peninsula. With all of it’s charms, it remains overlooked by tourists and those looking for an ideal vacation spot.
Lying cradled within the Balboa Peninsula, the seven islands that make up Newport Beach happen to have some of the most expensive real estate in California. Many of the homes here are 1.5 million and up! When you consider that many are surrounded by small yacht harbors and a peaceful yet tranquil environment, you know the price of the homes are more than well worth it.
If you live in California, you can find Newport Beach just off Pacific Coast Highway in beautiful Orange County. Simply take CA 55 south from I-5 to Newport Blvd. Or, you can also take CA 1 at Newport Blvd. After a short travel, the Newport Blvd. will turn into Balboa Blvd. and eventually take you down the middle of the island.
Whether you live in California or just outside of it, Newport Beach is one place you should visit. Once you visit this overlooked treasure, you’ll probably find yourself wondering why you didn’t visit sooner. Take our word for it – Newport Beach is simply “that good”.
