OC day trips with kids: Balboa Island

Balboa Island is actually an artificial peninsula in Newport Harbor and has an established community that hosts wonderful restaurants and shops. The best part about Balboa Island is getting there by ferry. Once you are on the Island it is a carnival like atmosphere right on the water. Here are my favorite things to do on and around the island with kids:

1) Grab a chocolate covered banana or a balboa bar
2) Go to Balboa Fun Zone
3) Get some lemonade from stands set-up by young local residents on Bayfront
4) Peninsula Park
5) Balboa Island Historic Fire Station
6) Marine Avenue for window shopping
7) Rent a Bicycle
8) Check out wildlife and tour historic Balboa Pavilion
9) Peek inside Teddy Bears and Teacups if you have a little girl
10)Get a treat from Balboa Candy

Have fun!

xoxo, C

If you're a foreigner and are gonna on a Tibet Travel or Tibet Tour, it's better to consult professionals on Tibet Travel Information or Tibet Travel Service. They may advise you to take part in the Tibet Travel Packages or Tibet Tour Packages because it's cheaper and the cheapest way of traveling is by Tibet Train. But travel abroad often needs to apply for a series of procedures such as visa, of course you need a Tibet Travel Permit. A Tibet Travel Operator or Tibet Travel Agency is the best way to choose for you.
