A Perfect Weekend in Newport Beach & Balboa Island


Would you like to spend the weekend in Newport Beach and Balboa Island? Me too!

Orange County is a very popular summertime destination, however, springtime is also the perfect season for a weekend visit to Newport Beach and Balboa Island because the crowds of summer have not yet arrived and the temp is most likely hovering around 74 degrees or higher. With so many lovely beaches, great shopping and fabulous restaurants, it is difficult to choose where to go next.
