The OC – Newport

by regandholly

Only way I found that we could fly into LA was to fly Cancun-Orange County via Denver. This just so happened to work perfectly, since my love of the show The OC, I have wanted to go there! Lame, I know!

We arrived about 45 mins late due to a few late connection flights in Denver.. But that turned out okay, we were in bed my 12am only to wake up on Cancun time, which was around 5am LA time. We hit up breakfast nice and early and found we had the most wonderful breakfast host. Not only did she completely look after all we needed in regards to food and drink, but she also made fabulous recommendations of how to spend our time in Newport and some tops spots to eat.
So with that, we grabbed two complimentary bikes and went along our way to Newport Pier, Balboa Pier, Balboa Island, Fashion Island, inspiration point and all the way back. The BEST day, seeing beautiful sights by the best possible transportation!! Seriously had a massive smile on my face like ALL day! Here it is in pictures..

We got back to Newport Pier for a late lunch at the Crab Cooker – great relaxed seafood restaurant that was absolutely packed!! We both had a small serve of clam chowder and I had scollops with bacon with salad. Delicious!!

We got back to the hotel around 4pm, after we left at 8am! Such a full and wonderful day! I totally wish that we were spending another day there!
We went down to the beach just in time for a beautiful sunset.
