Introducing Newport Beach
Primetime soap The OC may be over, but the angst-ridden adventures of its glamorous teens have given a hipper, youthful sheen to the city’s longstanding image as a paradise for wealthy yachtsmen and their trophy wives. Small-screen fame aside, the city’s basics haven’t changed too much: seafood lovers still flock to the harbor for just-off-the-boat seafood, boogie boarders still brave human-eating waves at The Wedge, and the ballet of yachts in the harbor still captivates the imagination. Just inland, more lifestyles of the rich and famous revolve around Fashion Island, a posh outdoor mall that’s one of the OC’s biggest shopping centers.
