Newport Beach, CA
Southern California might be known for Venice Beach, but there’s a small beach tucked away in Orange County that captures coastal essence perfectly. Located in Newport Beach, Crystal Cove is an enclave of 46 vintage cottages built in the 1930s and 1940s, and one of the last examples of early 20th century SoCal coastal development. From seaside teambuilding activities to a reception in the prized cottage from the movie “Beaches”, Crystal Cove’s cozy atmosphere is uniquely California.
Mission San Juan Capistrano
San Juan Capistrano, CA
