The Newport Beach Boat Parade is this weekend. Are there any restaurants where you can see the boats go by?

      Thank you, but some of those restaurants are a 2-3 block walk from the parade. I am trying to find a restaurant where you can dine and watch the boats go by.

        Tens of thousands of people descend on Newport for the boat parade and Balboa Bay club is one of the few places with views but that sells out with members for months ahead of time.

        Woody's Wharf for drinks and then find a spot with your gear but its hours to stake your spot and then you have to wait for hours to get out of the traffic.

        I would go on a Duffy charter and enjoy it that way.
