Dock and Dine Cruise

Several Newport Beach restaurants have docks just outside, and welcome boaters to "park" and dine. Enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, or cocktails. It's a fun, romantic, and unique way to experience this maritime community. If you prefer, ask the restaurant to pack your meal "to go" and enjoy it back on board.

Newport Beach Film Festival

Both major studio and independently produced films get recognition at this annual Orange County film festival. Movies are shown on 15 different screens at various venues throughout Newport, including Lido Regency, Starlight Triangle 8, and Island Cinemas. This year's festival is Apr. 24 to May 1, 2014.
