Inflatable Water Park opens on the weekend of Memorial Day. This family-favorite attraction hosts aquatic adventures and water sports, including the inflatable water park. You can kayak, paddleboard, or just play all day long. Here you don’t have to worry about playing too hard! 

Cruise Newport Beach is more for the romantics in us. These cruises are usually booked at sunset for romantic cruises. If you’re not feeling the love, they offer daytime whale watching cruises as well as general sunset cruises. They have a little something for everyone to enjoy at Newport Beach on the open water!  

If a whale-watching and a sunset cruise aren’t exactly your thing, you can also get information on the best boat charters in Newport Beach. You can take the family on tours and fishing trips through these great companies! 

Balboa Peninsula is a hotspot for fun! You can go to the Balboa Fun Zone, check out the pier, grab an infamous Balboa Bar, or even take surfing lessons. A short ferry ride will get you to the peninsula where you can also enjoy dining and shopping all in one spot. It’s a perfect day trip!
