West Coast Classic
Newport Beach is among the most well known cities in Orange County as home of the Newport Harbor and the prestigious neighborhoods that can be seen throughout. Originally sold at $1 per acre by the State of California in the 1800s, and later named by the famous John Irvine, Newport Beach has grown immensely in value and prestige across the United States as a home to luxury, leisure, and successful business.
The neighborhoods of Newport Beach are very different from each other, with some dating back to the official establishment of the city and others as new and contemporary as you can imagine. Largely designed around the Newport Harbor and the Upper Newport Bay, the city has a unique shape and variety of microclimates that offer a perfect home for everyone. The styles of home can be as unique as old cottages to fully custom designed villas and everything in between. The one consistent feature between them is you are always close to something amazing.
Home to multiple beaches, marshlands, hills, and dazzling shopping locations, Newport Beach will leave you with something to come home to in every area. The famous Fashion Island sits on a bluff top facing the sea, with the Pacific Coast Highway making a scenic drive throughout. Newport Harbor’s boats and sea lions glide through the waters, while surfers take on the infamous Wedge. Beautiful sights and entertainment options are a staple throughout.
