History & Geography

Newport Beach is one of the most affluent and beautiful cities in a state that is overflowing with them. Nestled on the coast of the Pacific just south of Los Angeles Newport Beach consists of a semi-artificial harbour and several artificial islands. The city was developed by James and Robert Irvine along with their friend James McFadden. The three realized the potential of the new settlement after in 1870 a ship called The Vaquero successfully navigated through the lower and upper bay of what is now Newport. The town was connected to LA by the Pacific Electric Railway in 1905 and was finally incorporated in 1906. The population of the area grew rapidly with its three artificial islands quickly being developed. The 1920s, in particular, saw a construction boom in Newport Beach, with hundreds of houses being built and infrastructure substantially improved and extended.


Newport Beach traditionally relied on shipbuilding and commercial fishing. These industries sustained the town in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. However today neither industry is present in any major form and the town relies primarily on recreation and tourism to keep its economy afloat. Many are employed by the numerous resorts, hotels and beach clubs in the city. The largest company in Newport Beach is the insurer Pacific Life. Other prominent companies in the area include Acacia Research, Conexant, Galardi Group and Jazz Semiconductor. Formerly Air California was based in the city, as was Edwards Theatres.
