The port city, founded in 1906, has a population of 86,252 (2009) and has seen steady population growth in recent years. Newport Beach is considered one of the richest cities in the United States by average household income . Some big companies like Pacific Life and Pimco are based here.
Due to its location by the sea, the city is a popular destination for beach holidaymakers and water sports enthusiasts. The proximity to the film metropolis Hollywood made Newport Beach the residence of many prominent personalities, including actor John Wayne . The city has gained greater prominence through the television series OC, California , Arrested Development and Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County .
Newport Beach is located about 40 miles (64 km) southeast of the city of Los Angeles on the Pacific Ocean in western southern California . The city is part of the Greater Los Angeles Area metropolitan area and belongs to a number of coastal towns connected by California State Route 1 (Pacific Coast Highway). Newport Beach is located on the southern edge of the shallow Los Angeles Basin , which merges into the rolling landscape of the San Joaquin Hills . Much of the city extends around Newport Bay , a sea bay that extends far inland. The Santa Ana River flows into the sea at the northern city limits . The sandy beaches and the cliff-jagged coast make the landscape one of the most varied spots in the area.
The urban area covers a total area of 103.2 square kilometers. Of this, 38.3 square kilometers are land and 64.9 square kilometers are water. Newport Beach stretches from sea level to Signal Peak, which is the highest point in the city at 354 meters.
Due to its location on the Pacific Ring of Fire , Newport Beach is often shaken by earthquakes . The geological instability causes many faults in the vicinity that run above or below the surface of the earth. On the eastern edge of the Greater Los Angeles Area is the San Andreas Fault , which experts say is the trigger for the next devastating earthquake. The Puente Hills Fault is also located directly below the metropolitan region , which creates additional risk potential. The so-called Newport-Inglewood Fault runs from the northwest in a southeast direction and ends at Newport Beach in the sea. Another fault was discovered in the hinterland of the city in the late 1990s and runs through the San Joaquin Hills . Due to its location by the sea, the city is also at risk from tsunamis .
The area has been hit by several major earthquakes in recent years. The Northridge earthquake in January 1994 reached a magnitude of 6.7 on the Richter scale and caused severe damage in the Greater Los Angeles Area. The Chino Hills earthquake in July 2008 measured a magnitude of 5.4. The epicenter was about 30 miles (30 miles) north of Newport Beach.
Newport Beach is bordered to the north by Costa Mesa and Irvine (including the University of California at Irvine ), on the west by Huntington Beach and in the southeast by the Crystal Cove State Park separated at Laguna Beach . The sea spreads in the southwest of the city.
Newport Beach is divided into the following districts and districts: Balboa Island , Balboa Peninsula , Corona del Mar , Lido Isle , Newport Coast , San Joaquin Hills and West Santa Ana Heights . The city has no inner city. Most of the shops and restaurants are concentrated on the Pacific Coast Highway , the harbor, or the boardwalks.
The special topography of the area also affects the urban structure. In the center there is Newport Bay, a natural bay on which the harbor is also located. Balboa Island, incorporated in 1916, and Lido Isle are small islands in the middle of the bay. In front of Newport Bay, the elongated Balboa Peninsula with the beach extends protectively from the Pacific Ocean .
Corona del Mar, located on the cliffs, has been attached to Newport Beach since 1923. In the recent past, the incorporation of several previously independent places in the city has resulted in a considerable increase in area and population. Newport Coast and San Joaquin Hills have been part of the urban area since 2002. Both settlements nestle high above the sea on the hilltops of the San Joaquin Hills . In 2008 West Santa Ana Heights was affiliated for the last time.
Newport Beach has a warm and dry climate all year round due to its location in the subtropical climate zone . The effective climate classification according to the classification Csa applies to the city. The average annual temperature is 16.6 degrees Celsius and the annual rainfall is 295.9 millimeters.
Summer is characterized by long periods of dry climate. The warmest months are July, August and September with a monthly temperature average of 20 degrees and more. Without the location on the Pacific coast, it would be much warmer as the wind from the sea weakens the temperatures. The highest temperature of 41.6 degrees was measured in 1963. Between May and October it is mostly dry.
In winter it is a little colder, but the temperatures rarely fall to single digits. The coldest months are January and December with an average of 13.5 degrees. The lowest temperature was measured in 1966 at -2.2 degrees. Almost all of the annual precipitation falls between November and April.
The so-called Santa Ana winds , which penetrate the region via the Santa Ana Mountains from the Mojave Desert to the northeast of the city , can at times cause strong heat waves in the region. Extensive forest and bush fires occur again and again.

Before the arrival of European immigrants, Tongva Indians lived in the area around what is now Newport Beach. The first European in the region was the explorer Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo , who claimed the land for Spain in 1542 without establishing a settlement. It took another two centuries when the Mission San Juan Capistrano, founded in 1776, began the hesitant settlement of the area. The goal was to proselytize the indigenous people living there.
In 1821 the former Spanish province of Mexico gained independence. The young country tried in the following years to enforce its territorial claims in California . In the course of the Mexican-American War between 1846 and 1848, the area was occupied by US soldiers and annexed to the United States . During the California Gold Rush , many new settlers moved west, which soon spread across the entire new state.
Shortly afterwards the real development of the city of Newport Beach began. In 1870 the ship The Vaquero went to a bay on the coast to trade with the local farmers. Little creativity was shown when the anchorage was given a name. The choice fell on Newport , which translated simply means "New Harbor". The McFadden brothers expanded the landing site with additional buildings. At the height of today's Newport Pier , they operated a transshipment point for goods that were delivered by ship.
At the beginning of the 20th century, William S. Collins recognized the tourist potential of the landscape. In 1902 the businessman bought large parts of their land from the McFaddens and had the artificial Balboa Island built up in the bay . Newport Beach was officially founded in 1906. At the same time, the Pacific Electric Railway opened a rail line to Los Angeles . The trains ended in front of the recently completed Balboa Pavilion , the oldest building in the city to date. Soon after that, summer vacationers flocked to the beaches of Newport Beach. The rapid growth did not end, Balboa Island was incorporated in 1916 and Corona del Mar in 1923 . With the new Pacific Coast Highway , automobile traffic also found its way.
In the decades that followed, the city became home to many prominent personalities. The proximity to the film metropolis Hollywood was particularly noticeable, many actors such as Humphrey Bogart , Shirley Temple and John Wayne owned magnificent villas or boats here. In 1963, the entire network of the Pacific Electric Railway was given up in favor of individual transport. Around 1990 the construction of an exclusive housing estate began with Newport Coast . Like San Joaquin Hills, it has been attached to Newport Beach since 2002 , and West Santa Ana Heights was incorporated six years later .
Newport Beach had a total of 86,252 residents in 2009. The city's population has been increasing continuously since it was founded in 1906. The reason for the rapid development in recent years is mainly due to the incorporation of the districts of Newport Coast (2002), San Joaquin Hills (2002) and West Santa Ana Heights (2008).
The United States Census 2000 counted 70,032 residents in 33,071 households and 16,965 families in Newport Beach. The population density was 2,523.1 people per square kilometer. The number of residential units was 37,288, which corresponds to a density of 974.1 apartments per square kilometer. The population was 92.2% White , 0.5% African American , 0.3% Native American , 4.0% Asian , 0.1% Pacific Islander, and 1.1% other ethnicities. Hispanics or Latinos were 4.71% of the population. The largest groups by ethnic origin in the urban area were: English 12,707 (18.1%), Germans 12,308 (17.6%) and Irish 10,786 (15.4%).
There were children under the age of 18 in 18.0% of the 33,071 households, 42.5% were married couples, 6.1% had a female head of the household without a husband present, and 48.7% were not forming families. 35.3% of households were made up of single people and 10.1% were single people aged 65 or older. The average household size was 2.09 people and the average family size was 2.71 people.
Of the population, 15.7% were under 18 years old, 6.5% were between 18 and 24, 33.0% between 25 and 44, 27.2% between 45 and 64 and 17.6% were 65 Years old or older. The median age was 42 years. For every 100 women there were 97.9 men, for every 100 women over the age of 18 there were 96.6 men.
The average income per household in 2008 amounted to 110,511 US dollars , the median family income was 162,976 US dollars. The city's per capita income was $ 63,015. This makes Newport Beach one of the richest cities in the United States based on average household income . With an average household income of $ 475,757 in 2005, the Newport Coast neighborhood was Orange County's richest parish . A total of 4.4% of the population was below the poverty line in 2000.
The Newport Beach California Temple, opened in 2005, is the 122nd Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the city . The top of the tower is 27 meters high and is crowned by a statue of the prophet Moroni .
The Mayor heads the Newport Beach city council . Edward D. Selich has held the office since November 2008.
The Newport Beach City Council has seven District Council members. It is divided according to the districts or districts (Districts) of Newport Beach. The city council holds a meeting twice a month to decide on local political issues.
Newport Beach has partnerships with the following cities:
Culture and sights
Music and theater
The architecturally sophisticated Orange County Performing Arts Center (OCPAC) in Costa Mesa , a neighboring town to Newport Beach, is the cultural flagship of the region. It is home to the Pacific Symphony , the Philharmonic Society of Orange County , the Opera Pacific, and the Pacific Chorale . Several extensions have been made since it was built in the 1960s. The house regularly offers performances by renowned artists and groups from all over the world. The program mainly includes concerts , ballet , cabaret , operas and Broadway shows .
With the South Coast Repertory (SCR), a professional theater company has set up in the neighborhood. When it was founded in 1964, it was based in Newport Beach and has since changed locations several times. In 2002 the modern Folino Theater Center opened on Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa . The ensemble has become known far beyond the region through its productions.
Among the city's many museums, the Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA) on San Clemente Drive stands out. The exhibitions largely include works of contemporary and modern art. Art lovers can also visit the numerous galleries and exhibitions in the neighboring town of Laguna Beach . The small town is widely celebrated for its distinctive art scene and is also home to the Laguna Art Museum .
The Newport Harbor Nautical Museum on the harbor is a maritime museum opened in 1986. It houses a large collection of ship models and maritime artifacts. Marine animals can be observed in aquariums. Historic ships, including the paddle steamer Pride of Newport , are moored at the dock .
Striking architectural constructions are rare in Newport Beach. Nevertheless, the following buildings stand out from the crowd.
The Balboa Pavilion on the Balboa Peninsula of the same name , with its distinctive turret, is the oldest building in the city. Since it was built in 1906, the impressive wooden structure has housed a restaurant and ballrooms. The excursion boats and ferries to Santa Catalina Island leave from the immediate vicinity of the pavilion at the harbor .
On the sea-facing side of the Balboa Peninsula, Newport Pier and Balboa Pier protrude into the water. The two buildings erected around 1900 served as shipping piers during the city's early days. From the elaborate wooden structures you can overlook the city or watch the numerous surfers . Hobby fishermen can cast their line here.
Located at the foot of Newport Pier, the Dory Fishing Fleet is one of the last remaining fishing fleets in the area. In the rustic wooden shed on Oceanfront Boulevard, fishermen have been promoting their catches since 1891.
There are some masterpieces of villa architecture distributed over the city area. This includes the Lovell Beach House , which is considered an outstanding example of modernism in architecture. The building, erected in 1926, is one of the most famous works by the Austrian-American architect Rudolph Michael Schindler .
The entire urban area is loosened up by numerous parks and green spaces. Many of these plants are characterized by lush vegetation, which is favored by the mild climate. Long alleys made of palm trees line the streets of the city and create a relaxed atmosphere.
With the Sherman Library and Gardens , Newport Beach has a botanical garden . A considerable collection of plants can be seen in the greenhouses and in the outdoor area. The selection ranges from desert plants to tropical plants. There are also seasonal flower beds and fountains on site. The attached library acquires, organizes and receives all kinds of items that tell the story of the Pacific Southwest.
The Upper Newport Bay is located further inland part of the Newport Bay. The bay is designated as a nature reserve and offers a retreat for numerous animal and plant species. In the winter months, tens of thousands of migratory birds rest on the site.
The Crystal Cove State Park stretches along the south Pacific Coast Highway from the sea coast to the hilly hinterland. Wide sandy beaches and wooded hiking trails await visitors. The varied natural landscape attracts both plant and animal lovers.
freetime and recreation
One of the main attractions in Newport Beach are the palm-fringed sandy beaches on the Pacific Ocean , which are ideal for swimming and sunbathing. Around eight miles (13 km) of coastline form the southwestern boundary of the city.
The Corona del Mar State Beach is one of the most beautiful coastline of the area and crowded with bathers. The mild climate ensures pleasant water temperatures all year round. An abundance of bays and cliffs gives the surrounding landscape additional charm.
The water is one of the most popular pastimes in Newport Beach. Numerous surfers seek the high surf of the surf spots , which also include the well-known The Wedge . The city is also home to ten yacht clubs . Almost 9,000 boats of all types are anchored in the bay.
The Balboa Fun Zone at the harbor is the first port of call for people looking for fun. The facility, which has existed since the mid-1930s, offers plenty of variety for children and adults. One of the most popular attractions is an old ferris wheel .
The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim should be mentioned first among the leisure facilities in the vicinity . The amusement park was one of the most visited amusement complexes in the world, with an estimated 14.9 million visitors in 2007. The Disney's California Adventure Park is adjacent to the Disneyland Resort . Both parks particularly attract families with children from all over the world.
Newport Beach offers a varied selection of restaurants serving international cuisine. In addition to the fast food chains, which are represented on the wide arterial roads, there are also some places for high demands. Due to the large number of Latin American immigrants, Mexican cuisine is widespread. The sea provides a plentiful supply of seafood , which explains the high number of fish restaurants.
An institution is The Crab Cooker restaurant on Newport Boulevard, which mainly serves fish dishes. The fictional television series OC, California , set in Newport Beach, made the little red building known as the Crab Shack . The restaurant made national headlines when the then US President Richard Nixon inquired whether an exception would be made for him in the waiting time. But the owner replied that the president, like all the other guests, would have to queue up.
Newport Beach hosts a variety of events year round.
Films are shown at the annual Newport Beach Film Festival in April. The event, which has existed since 1999, has become known for its premieres. Among other things, the US premiere of the film LA Crash took place here, which was awarded the Oscar film prize three times in 2006 . The festival is regularly attended by around 40,000 people.
Economy and Infrastructure
Several important companies were founded in the city. These include the investment company Pimco and the record label Volcom Entertainment . Newport Beach is also home to life insurance and financial services company Pacific Life and property developer Irvine Company . In addition, the software company Day Software has set up one of its two headquarters here.
The Newport Center is the city's business hub. Many of the above companies have settled here. The center of the district is the Fashion Island , where various department store chains have settled. The Newport Center Drive encircles the area. In the immediate vicinity there is a large number of restaurants and other entertainment options.
Due to the high purchasing power of the residents, many expensive retail stores have established themselves in Newport Beach. Most of these shops are concentrated along the Pacific Coast Highway in the city center. Countless well-known brands can be found here.
The Fashion Island is a large shopping center in which branches of several department stores have established themselves. It houses representatives of the Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s chains, among others . Another attraction is the South Coast Plaza in the adjacent Costa Mesa . With approximately 270,000 square feet of retail space, the complex ranks second on the list of the largest shopping arcades in the United States .
Three state routes connect Newport Beach with the surrounding area. A distinction is made between intersection-free motorways (freeways) and other expressways ( highways ). For the sake of easier orientation, the connections are nicknamed.
All freeways and highways at a glance:
The California State Route 1 runs directly through the city center. The so-called Pacific Coast Highway runs in north-south direction, usually within sight of the sea and is therefore very popular with motorists. Orange County's coastal towns are lined up like a string of pearls and the road connects them. It leads north past San Francisco , among other places .
The California State Route 55 begins at Newport Boulevard near the border with neighboring Costa Mesa . The so-called Costa Mesa Freeway acts primarily as a feeder to Interstate 405 and Interstate 5 , via which the megacities Los Angeles and San Diego can be reached in an hour's drive.
In the hinterland, California State Route 73 winds through the San Joaquin Hills . The so-called Corona del Mar Freeway is a bypass of the largely parallel I-405. The southern part is also known as the San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor . However, a toll must be paid on this section .
The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) operates several bus routes in and around Newport Beach that provide public transportation . The Newport Transportation Center is a central hub where most of the connections meet.
The Pacific Electric Railway completed the construction of a railroad line from Los Angeles to Newport Beach in 1906 . Many beach holidaymakers used the new means of transport, and the population of the young city rose rapidly. The route ended in front of the Balboa Pavilion . In 1963, the operation of the entire network was discontinued in favor of individual transport and the railway line was dismantled.
Newport Beach no longer has a rail connection. The Surf Line , a railroad line from Los Angeles to San Diego , runs north in the urban area of Irvine . From there, the Amtrak- operated Pacific Surfliner and Metrolink suburban trains provide local and long-distance connections.
Newport Beach can be reached from the air via John Wayne Airport (SNA). The airport is directly adjacent to Interstate 405 , which is flown over by landing machines at low altitude. Administratively it is assigned to the neighboring city of Santa Ana . Only domestic American destinations are currently served from John Wayne Airport. The airport handled approximately 8.9 million travelers in 2008. A specialty is a larger than life bronze statue of the namesake John Wayne , which is exhibited in Terminal B.
There are numerous other airports in the vicinity, including one of the largest in the world with the huge Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
Most of the city is in close proximity to waterways. Much of the city is on the coast of the Pacific Ocean and around Newport Bay. Some parts of the city are on islands. Waterways run between the residential areas on the bay and, like in Venice, have a branching system of canals. Many properties therefore have their own moorings.
The port area including Newport Bay covers an area of around 54 square kilometers, where almost 9,000 boats of all types are anchored. There are also ten yacht clubs in Newport Beach .
The local schools are administered by the Newport-Mesa Unified School District . There are seven elementary schools , one middle school and two high schools spread across the Newport Beach metropolitan area .
The Newport Harbor High School was founded in 1930 and is mainly known from the media. The school was one of the main locations for the Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County reality series between 2007 and 2008 . Around 2,400 students are currently studying at the school.
