What's the Difference Between Winter and Summer in Newport Beach?
 

Dead of Winter
 

High Summer
 
I have lived in Southern California almost my entire life.   It's only when I speak to people in other places, like the East Coast, that I realize what temperature differentials there are from one season to another.  Here, we like to complain when the temperature rises over 80 or falls below 50.

Newport Terrace is a condominium association located in an area that many might mistakenly believe to be Costa Mesa. However, it is a small oasis in Newport Beach offers so much for a reasonable price.

Located at the end of 19th Street, Newport Terrace has 281 homes. It is located near the beach and is just above the Talbert Nature Preserve which also encompasses what is known locally as the Sheep Hills, a place where the kids enjoy riding their BMX bikes on the hills.
 
Many don't even realize this small enclave of Newport … (5 comments)

Newport Beach - Beautiful Even on a Cloudy Day - Speechless Sundays
 

 
Even the odd cloudy, rainy day is beautiful in Newport Beach.  This picture taken just as the rains were starting to come in shows that Mother Nature is beautiful in many of its iterations especially when it has the Pacific Ocean to use as a back drop.

Santa Ana River Jetty on a November Afternoon - Speechless Sundays
 

 
One of the great things about living in Southern California is that the weather in Newport Beach allowed us to take the kids and the dogs to the ocean in mid November and actually get into the water.  Perhaps not as warm as summer, but doable.

Is There Any Question Why I Love Newport Beach? - Friday Fotos
 

 
Can anyone guess why I love to walk along the ocean in Newport Beach after a long, stressful week just listening to the sound of the waves crashing along the shore and the seagulls calling or just because it's a beautiful day?

newport beach: Newport Beach Short Sale - By the Numbers - 02/09/10 06:08 PM
Over the past few years, Orange County has seen a large decline in median home values.  Newport Beach, though perhaps more insulated from the decline due to its location next to the coast, has also seen a decline, and this becomes more obvious when looking at the number of short sales.
Only 44 of the 472 homes for sale in Newport Beach, short sales, meaning that less than 10% of the homes for sale are short sales.  When compared to other local cities, this is a much smaller number.
 
When looking at the homes that are currently in escrow or under … (5 comments)
