Oceanside Getaway in Newport Beach
Getting down behind the Orange Curtain (as Orange County is called) can really feel like a vacation, especially if you plan an entire weekend near the beach. With tony hotels, great shopping, and top-notch dining, Newport Beach is a great spot to hole up for a few days. It straddles two worlds: one occupied by mega-yachts and the super-ritzy Fashion Island, and the other defined by the Balboa Peninsula's throwback charm and sailor bars. You can even plan a mini trip within a trip by jaunting over to other Orange County enclaves like Laguna Beach, or by sailing over to Catalina Island. These are our picks for spending a few relaxing days near the waves. – By Lesley Balla
