Ever since I watch the TV show called The OC I always wanted to see Newport Beach, although I don’t think they filmed at that location? I still wanted to check it out.
I’ve been staying at Huntington Beach and doing mini road trips around California with a friend. Seeing’s as I was just down the road from Newport Beach I decided to go and see what all the hype was about. I googled and found a restaurant to eat at and off we went. Here’s what I discovered about Newport Beach…
We ate at Cannery Newport which is on the water so you get a nice view of the boats. What I found from my own personal experience was the wait staff are friendly however the clientele seemed a little more shall we say reserved?
My kale salad went well with a glass of Taittinger (yes I do love my Taittinger and I’ve been to the House of Taittinger in Reims!). My friend had the prime rib french dip sandwich and we both agree the food was good. However, I think I enjoyed the food at The Deck in Laguna or Malibu Farm in Malibu more (sorry Cannery).
Location: 3010 Lafayette Ave, Newport Beach, CA 92663
After lunch, we took a drive through Newport Beach so I could see a little more of Orange County. The beach looked beautiful and I liked the pier, as you can see it’s a pretty tough view to take in…. Welcome to California the landed of great beaches (that’s a big call coming from an Australian!) ha ha ha. There was also shopping around the beach!
If I were to go back to Newport Beach I would have some lunch and spend the rest of the day at the beach!
My Overview of Newport beach
There are so many boats and marina’s around here they are everywhere you turn. I must say the tranquillity of the water is rather soothing! So, go and experience it for yourself and see what’s it’s like, you never know if you don’t go!
Until next time I travel, I see, I share... This is Character 32 doing her best to help you!
