Newport Beach – OC California

After Disneyland we drove to Newport Beach which is just a 30min drive away. Once you arrive at Newport you can easily see why the makers of OC California decided to take Newport as the home of the series’ characters. There are lots of lovely beach houses and everything looks just really clean and pretty.

We parked the car in the street (yeah, first time we did not have to pay a 30 USD flat fee for parking the car as in LA) and then walked over the beach. After Disneyland’s craziness a day on the beach was exactly the right thing to do :)

After a few hours of sunbathing we walked along the little cafes and shops up to the Newport Pier. From there you can why Newport Beach is also quite popular with surfers – lots of ‘tidy’ waves. I didn’t go surfing there as we didn’t have enough time – our surfing holiday will be in Hawaii and Costa Rica in a few months, we’ve already picked up our Ann’s Cottage wetsuits and are just wishing we were there :)

Around 6pm we started our road trip up to San Francisco where we arrive late in the evening. Read more about San Francisco in the next blog post.


Nach Disneyland ging es weiter nach Newport Beach, was ihr bestimmt von der Serie OC California kennt. Newport sieht wirklich sehr huebsch aus und vor allem sauber! Die Strandhaeuser sind echt schoen und man kann sich wunderbar vorstellen, auch eine etwas laengere Zeit in Newport zu verbringen. Newport ist auch beliebt bei Surfern – leider haben wir es diesmal nicht geschafft, hier zu surfen zu gehen. Das machen wir dann in Costa Rica :)

Nach ein paar Stunden am Strand ging es dann gegen Abend weiter nach San Francisco, wo wir so um Mitternacht ankamen. Dazu mehr im naechsten Post.
