It's a beautiful place to live with a lot to offer. There is beautiful beaches every where you turn and amazing restaurants. The only thing missing is the nightlife, there will be random cool events that happen sporadicly but something permanent would be great. I would also love to see the addition of museums or even just fun things to do on the weekend with your family!

I lived in Newport beach for about a year. I absolutely loved the area and all the cute shops and obviously can't forget about the beach! I'm a college student so I never really had all the money that usual people in Newport beach had. Some of the people that live in Newport can be snooty which was something that made me a little uncomfortable. I loved living in Newport for a year but I would rather live in an area that has more people my age, not so much older adults.
Whats not to love about Newport?! The beach is beautiful, gorgeous weather all year round. People are very nice and there are tons of great restaurants. You are also close to other great beaches such as laguna beach and huntington beach. all have tons of things to do from bowling, arcade games, bars, clubs, hiking, etc.
