Things to do around Newport Beach  (4 Answers)

A g/friend and I are considering a renting a beach house around Newport Beach for a week and a bit. I have visited before and always wanted to go back and stay longer. I loved both Newport and Balboa Island /peninsula - however as we were only there for a day back in 2010 - Im not sure which area would have the most 'going on' in regards to nightlife?
Interested in:
-casual cafes and restaurants
-live music venues
- nice cocktail lounges OR pubs/taverns to relax & meet locals in
- any other suggestions would be appreciated - any food experiences we 'must try' ?
- are thereany wine-tasting options nearby? how far out would need to travel to throw that in
-Transit services - best way to get back up the highway to LA/malibu without having to hire a car - if possible

ps what are peoples views on Huntington Beach - does that area have nice potential as a vacation spot? Seems to be a bit more residential ? but I am only going by maps and real estate guides etc
Thanks all

Dinner?  (3 Answers)

Hello, a friend and I are travelling down to the Huntington Beach area and are planning on visiting CSU Fullerton. We'll be eating lunch on the way, but we want to find somewhere unique for dinner. Nothing too expensive, nor fancy, nor time consuming. We just want to go somewhere that has great food, with atmosphere being a plus! Preferably a place that's not a huge chain. This should be somewhere in the vicinity of Fullerton/Costa Mesa, but if it's worth it, we're willing to go out of our way.
Thanks in advance!

Balboa Boat Parade parking question  (5 Answers)

I'm hoping to attend the 2008 Balboa Christmas Boat Parade, but I've heard that parking on the island is impossible during that time because of the crowds. Does anyone know whether it would be feasible to park in the ferry parking lot in Newport Beach, or is that likely to be full as well? (I would be planning to cross over to the island around 4 PM for the 6:30 parade start time.) Thanks!
