All of you know each year we are lucky enough to vacation for two weeks in our family's condo down south. Yes, you may hate us now. But let's face it, not everyone has a condo just sitting there begging to be used. So for those of you who are looking for a fantastic getaway and are dying to soak up some sun on the sands of a beautiful beach, may I suggest Newport Beach
With pristine waters, unparalleled views, family outings that are fun for all, and a resort that promotes relaxation at its best, this could be your vacation destination of a lifetime! Newport Beach combines "SoCal" sophistication and laid back beach town. This balanced combo provides the most rewarding experience for the family looking for a carefree vacation spot.
Have I peaked your interest? Then head over to their website right now! The site offers city info, hotel reservations, suggestions on where to eat, and even ideas on what to do while you are there. Just some of the great activities you can choose from: surfing, swimming, and body boarding for the water loves. Or maybe you're a nature lover. Then a hike in the Upper Newport Bay nature preserve may be your idea of fun! Or....maybe you are a wore out mom (like me), who after a long day laying in a lounge chair by the pool or on the warm sands, wants to shop 'til you drop! The best shopping in Orange County is at Fashion Island in Newport Beach! Now that's my idea of a perfect day! Plus there are plenty of either family friendly or couple oriented restaurants, where you can "dock and dine" along the harbor.
And where should you stay while you are enjoying your beach vacay? Why, the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach hotel of course! Why? Because they have a great promotion for families: Buy one room at full price, receive a connecting room for kids 18 and under at 50% off. The Hyatt Regency Newport Beach is a resort-style bayside destination on 26 acres and boasts 3-pools and whirlpools, shuffle board, ping pong, a 9-hole, par-3 golf course. Call 800-233-1234 and mention the Family Plan to book today!
If your answer was the "mom" option, be sure to look into the kids camps available. They have tons of unique options so you can find just the right one for your little ones. If it were my little guy, I know he would go "bananas" over the Star Wars or Harry Potter camp!!!
I absolutely adore the beach. From swimming in the waves, to long relaxing walks on the warm sands, watching the sunset with someone you love, or playing all day in the sun~ a beach vacation can totally rejuvenate you and give your family memories to last a lifetime!
