Toddler-Friendly Beach in Southern California

by annmar

What is a good beach to take a 2-year-old in Southern California? A place that is now too crowded would be nice. I remember going to Newport Dunes about 15-20 years ago. How is that now?

Thank you in advance.

I used to take my kids to "Mother's Beach" in Marina del Rey. It's at the end of the pier, an enclosed area, and very nice child friendly environment. There are quite a few restaurants around, but they have kept the parking lot for the beach like they had when my kids were little.

I had heard the water was extremely polluted, but apparently it has a nice rating now:

Once on this site, check "Los Angeles County" ... give the browser a few minutes to build up the content (it's a little slow) ... then when the beach list shows up, search for #'s 61, 62, and 63. These are the Mother's Beaches in Marina del Rey, not Long beach.

Oh, Orange County ... well, if you search for OC instead, there is Newport Dunes listed - and they're also nicely rated.

There is a playground on the beach at Venice and in Santa Monica. If you're looking for something less populated then check out the beach in Marina Del Rey off Speedway (just south of Washington Blvd.). Parking here is more difficult but it keeps this slip of beach more residential and less populated. There isn't a playground but there is a nice massive expanse of beach that runs from Washington Pier to the MDR boat slip.

Mother's Beach sounds good however, another excellent beach would be on 42d Street, off Pacific Coast Highway in El Porto/Manhattan Beach area.
Enjoy those wonderful SoCal temperatures.

Travel Tips for Newport Beach

Not exactly "The OC"

by emilesc

Note: The following was written on Aug 22, 2003 during the first season of "The OC." I stopped watching the show midway through second season.

Newport Beach is where The OC is set. I thought I'd use this page to dispel a few myths in a humorous light.

Fact: Lest you go to visit the city and leave disappointed, Newport Beach is not quite that rich. Granted, it's more upscale than, say, Hollywood. But the house that family lives in? As one of my friends who grew up in Orange County put it, that's more Laguna Nagel than Newport Beach. And there are even parts of Newport Beach that you *gasp* may want to avoid!

Fact: There are people of color in Orange County, and not all them reside in an Orange County prison. Someone needs to let the makers of The OC in on that little secret. It's been noted, for instance, that the show needs *far* more Asians to appear realistic. It's 2003, not the 1970s.

Fact: Chino is referred to as the "wrong side of the tracks" in the promos for the show. Actually, Chino is not part of Orange County at all. It's part of the area Angelenos refer to as the Inland Empire or, less affectionately, "the 909," after the area code, which includes San Bernadino and Riverside Counties (if you're confused, these are the counties you pass by on the way to Las Vegas).

I don't know if Chino deserves the reputation, but If you listen to the Kevin and Bean's morning show on 106.7 FM, you'll occasionally hear them speak of the 909 as "the land of the Dirt People," home of the mullet," and "the Meth Lab capital." It's also where the smog gently drifts from Los Angeles and settles like a lead bomb. Often the 909 has "hazadous" smog alerts.

So Chino is sort of on the wrong side of the tracks, but it's not like Newport Beach is sitting right on the other side blowing raspberries at it. For more about this much-maligned area code, visit the wikipedia link below.

"Beach Life"

Newport Beach is a fun beach town. plenty to do with Bicycling up and down the beach where a long sidewalk exists. I believe the sidewalk is about 2 miles long following the sand from past the Newport Beach pier to past the Balboa Pier. I know my picture is sort of goofy but I needed a recent picture.

"The Open Sea..."

Sailing.. A great treat for those that love the big blue sea, and for those who don't, it's worth trying at least once!
Newport Beach has a nice nice harbor in which many dock their boats. It houses 4 feul stations and 2 very good sailing stations along PCH (Pacific Coast Highway).
The N.B. harbor also is known for its week-long lighted boat parade during the Christmas time. The parade originated in the early 1900s when a Venetian gondolier, John Scarpa illuminated eight canoes and his gondola. This was the start of what now is the famous boat parade and to some an intense competition, costing thousands of dollars.
I have been fortaunte to have been around sailboats since childhood.
There is something about the sea...I could never leave it. I understand it, it brings me peace and it makes me whole.

"Newport Beach"

This was the hub for my trip to La Paz, Mexico. At the time of writing, it will have been 3 days before I will have set out for Avalon, Santa Catalina Island, CA and the port will be Newport Beach. We have some friends who live here, but my guess is that they would like to remain anonymous.

2009 Jazz Festival

by GracesTrips

The weather at this year's festival was perfect. Maybe a little chilly for me but my boyfriend was really enjoying it. The sun was out in the afternoon and we thought it would be a scorcher. But, the clouds came in and made it very cool. No much of a breeze so that was good. I tried to get some reading in during the day but the book I was reading wasn't too interesting - the reading made me drowsy. All kinds of food vendors selling fried chicken, catfish, shrimp, fried oysters, hush puppies, tacos and bbq ribs. There are also other vendors selling jewelry, hats, clothing, this and that. You can leave the premises and return as you are wearing a wrist band to show you bought a ticket.

We had a great time and look forward to next year's event.
