All About Newport Beach


California Adventure - "Living in the OC"

The OC (Orange County, California) has many beautiful cities to live in including Newport Beach,Irvine, Anaheim, Fountain Valley, Huntington Beach, Corona del Mar and Laguna Beach (just to name a few). Not only does living in the OC offer coastal living and beach activities, there is also other activities that may spark your interest.

One of the amenities of living in the "OC" is the close proximity to Disneyland and California Adventure. California Adventure is about a 20 minute drive from Newport Beach. California Adventure is located in Anaheim right next to Disneyland (it is a Disney amusement park) and if you ever get the chance to visit - I highly recommend it.

There is of course great creativity as well as great rides and fun for the family. It is an adventure, and visitors come from all over to see this amusement park. And the weather was spectacular on this Saturday, January 19, 2008 - about 73 degrees during the day - as you can see from the blue skies in the photographs.

There are swing rides, roller coasters, drops, excitement for all.

One of my favorite attractions is the "Tower of Terror" - not only is it incredibly creative, it is FUN!!!

California Adventure showcases California - from attractions about Hollywood, and the Hollywood back-lot. There are local dance companies that perform at the Hollywood back-lot creating even more entertainment. There is even a replica of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Once again, this is one of the amenities of living in the OC. Enjoying beautiful sunshine, and a fun, family day at California Adventure.
