Newport Beach has the largest recreational harbor on the west coast, with ten miles of extraordinary fishing, swimming, surfing, and aquatic sports.  Ten distinct neighborhoods make up Newport Beach, each with its own unique personality, natural beauty, and story to share.  From sunset cruises to surf lessons, wine tastings to harbor-front promenades, Newport Beach offers something for everyone.  We invite you to join us to learn, unwind, and enjoy picturesque views of California's sunrise and sunsets - Paradise is what the locals call it.  Please see the "Location" tab for more information on this fabulous meeting location!
