Plan Your Trip to Newport Beach in January 

Winter is one of the best times to visit Newport Beach. Here are a few reasons you should plan a winter getaway to the Southern California coast! 

The Weather 

For many, a mild winter is the major selling point for any January vacation. Trade in the cold temperatures, ice, and snow of many other regions of the United States for sunny days by the beach! The average high temperature in Newport Beach in January is 64°F, while the low hangs around 50°F. We love to spend our January afternoon strolling along Southern California’s beaches taking in the beautiful views. The UV index is lower during this time of year, too, which means you enjoy the sun’s rays without worrying about a sunburn!
