Newport Beach Reviews

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.
Newport Beach is a wealthy and safe area, I've lived here for 2 years. Many top-notch restaurants, big-time companies, and luxury car dealerships are located here. I always hang out at coffee shops here when I have nothing to do or nowhere to go just bring a laptop and sit there all day. The weather is great not too humid during the day and just a little chilly at night because it is by the coast. Perfect vacation destination, most people are friendly except sometimes might be stuck-up because they might think that they're superior because they live in Newport Beach haha.
