Boats glide seamlessly in and out of the Newport Harbor as people ride bicycles, walk, rollerblade and enjoy the cement paths, beaches and roads such as Newport and Balboa Boulevard.

Newport Beach offers more vacation rental properties than surrounding beach cities and the mix of old time locals, newcomers, fun seekers, vacationers, renters and celebrities such as Dennis Rodman who enjoy this vibrant area with a feel reminiscent of the metropolitan beach communities near Los Angeles such as Hermosa and Manhattan Beach.
