UPDATE 2013: I forgot that I wrote this post! Well I wanted to tell you that we actually went to Newport Beach this past spring break! Oh I can't begin to tell you how beautiful it was! And so close to Disneyland too. The beach was lovely...definitely my favorite place to be. So glad we finally went and can't wait to go again!
My family and I were actually talking about going to Newport Beach this summer. So this opportunity to talk about it on my blog came at the perfect time!
I had fun browsing around the VisitNewportBeach website, dreaming of a sunny, laid-back SoCal vacation. We love road trips so we'd probably drive down. As I researched places to stay, I was really interested in the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach Hotel. Not only did I love the modern decor in the pictures, I could really imagine myself relaxing in that pool underneath all those palm trees! Ahhhh.... At the Hyatt, there's currently a deal going on: reserve a room and kids 18 and under will get their own adjoining room for 50% off. Talk about Ahhhh...having more room where you're staying always makes vacations much better. For more information on this deal, call 800-233-1234 and mention the Family Plan.
I'd love to go there to watch Fourth of July Fireworks along the water, or try to spot a giant blue whale during their migration along the coast, which goes on all summer. And I think my girls would be content to look for seashells and build sandcastles on the beach (and I'd be content lounging around and watching them)!
But when the kids are up for more adventure, Newport Beach also offers kids summer camps. They have something for every kid's interests, from learning to sail and surf, to themes like Harry Potter and Star Wars.
So where's your dream vacation? Headed to the beach this year?
