The best part about Southern California is the sunny weather year-round, making it easy to find outdoor seating for you and your pup at any cafe or restaurant any time of the year. If you want to do some shopping while out and about, there are several options. Kriser's Natural Pet is a chain store on Irvine Avenue that you can visit. Heading towards the Balboa Peninsula, Charlie & Me is a boutique pet store offering food, toys, and more to take home to your pampered pooch.
Much of the northwestern part of Newport Beach is suburban with many quiet streets lined with houses. Some of the streets have slight hills, but the area invites you for a relaxing neighborhood stroll. In the west, you'll find long stretches of busier roads and hilly streets. There isn't a lot for a dog and their owner to do in this area and fast-moving cars can be dangerous. For the best walk in Newport Beach, stay around the beach and suburban areas.
On the Balboa Peninsula, there is a bike path that runs several miles along Newport Beach, allowing pet access all day. You'll still be able to enjoy the ocean views while taking your pup out for some fresh air. If you're interested in some hiking, the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve offers hundreds of acres of hiking trails through wooded areas.
