Did you know? Newport is known as the most Republican City in California
The Upper Bay of Newport is canyon country and lower Newport Bay of was formed by sand brought in by ocean currents - which was used to construct the offshore beach of Balboa Peninsula.
The original Indian settlements were abundant and rich. Today, artifacts can be found in abundance everywhere about the outskirts of town. Back in the day, there were few people and a lot of land. Settlers from the east were able to buy acre plots for $1. $100 dollars meant you can buy yourself an estate.
1870 marked the year when local Anglo-American civilization would grow in leaps and bounds. A 105-ton steamer opened up the area to ships, as the captain safely navigated the lower and upper bay of Newport - for the first time. Hence the name New Port!! Previously, this route was thought to be dangerous and unmanageable.
Before the arrival of the railroad, Newport Beach was nearly destitute, with a population of just over 200 citizens. How things would change. In 1905, the city was connected by railroad with downtown LA, which meant nothing but money to local landholders, developers and businessmen. Settlers filled the Peninsula, West Newport, Newport Island, Balboa Island and Lido Isle and the population grew exponentially before leveling off to today's total.
Today, the top 10 employers in Newport Beach are:
- Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian

“But wait, won’t a ban on marijuana keep the drug gangs OUT of Newport?”
No, it is just the opposite, in every case. When will the good law abiding citizens get it? When you make Pot illegal, you literally put a mountain of cash into criminal hands and bring gangsters into your neighborhood. Banning marijuana is equivalent to asking your doctor for an injection of Cancer. Ha.
“Newport Beach” and “Mexican Drug Cartel” aren’t things that generally roll off the tongue in the same sentence. That’s because Newport has had pretty sensical drug laws and never really rocked the boat– until today. Tonight, at the City Council meeting at 7pm in the Newport Beach City Hall (100 Civic Center Dr, Newport Beach, CA 92660), the City Council will be taking up a vote as to whether or ban medical marijuana.
