In a county dominated by the need to drive, a few Newport Beach spots offer late-night revelers something rare: a walkable nightlife. One of these clusters of restaurants and bars lies on the Balboa Peninsula, near the Newport Pier. Patrons have come here for decades - be they neighborhood dwellers, summer renters or residents - to enjoy a vibrant, seaside area where they can move from place to place without getting behind the wheel.
