Top 5 Things to Do in Newport Beach in February 

1. Enjoy the Weather 

One of the main draws to Newport Beach in the winter months is our area’s mild weather. In February, the temperatures range from the low 50s to high 60s, which is a pleasant escape for travelers coming from colder regions of the United States. Be sure to add a jacket or something warm to your Newport Beach packing list, as the sea breeze can get a bit chilly in the evening! 

2. Visit the Beach 

No visit to Southern California would be complete with a trip to the beach! The water temperature during this time of year is about 60°F, which is a bit chilly for watersports unless you have a wetsuit. That’s why we recommend a stroll on the Newport Beach Boardwalk for those who want to simply enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean! 

3. Taste Local Flavors 

Southern California is a melting pot of international flavors. Dine at the most popular Newport Beach restaurants with little to no wait when you visit in February!  

Head over to Newport Landing Restaurant after a stroll along the boardwalk. This Newport Beach restaurant boasts waterfront views and mouthwatering menu items! There’s an entire section of their menu dedicated to fresh catches, like grilled Atlantic salmon and blackened Pacific swordfish. There’s also an oyster bar upstairs!   

4. Celebrate Valentine’s Day 

The most traffic we get in Newport Beach is over Valentine’s Day. With first-class restaurants and spectacular ocean views, Newport Beach is an obvious choice for a romantic getaway! Celebrate the occasion with your special someone on a sunset dinner cruise or a gondola tour of Newport Bay.
