When I graduated high school, my aunt in California got together with my aunt here on the East Coast to arrange for me to come visit her in Los Angeles. Although that was 20 years ago, I still remember the stunning beaches on the West Coast, including the utterly charming Newport Beach. It's definitely one of the prettiest beachl towns on either coasts!
