Day 1 - Newport Beach


Start your day off with a traditional American breakfast at First Cabin Restaurant, or sleep in a little and enjoy their fine brunch specialties. From here head over to the Sawdust Festival a summer tradition of over 40 years. There is so much to discover here, jugglers, glass-blowers. It truly is breathtaking, how many cool things are here, you can and probably should spend all day. Making your way through the festival may work up an appetite and if that is the case stop in at the Laguna Culinary Arts where you will be delighted to both look at and eat these decadent dishes. If you can manage to tear yourselves away from the food join in the fun at First Thursday's Art Walk, this walk showcases around 40 galleries, all for your viewing pleasure. Free shuttles are available and you can do the tour with a guide if you prefer. Off to Mexico for dinner, well not exactly but you may very well think you are. Las Brisas boasts some of the best Mexican food in Southern California. Their menu relies heavily on the seafood from the Pacific Ocean but they have something for everyone. When you are nice and full head back to the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort for some well deserved sleep.
