Welcome to the second volume of The Scout Guid Newport Beach. This guide is a celebration of the people behind the exceptional local businesses in Newport Beach — the entrepreneurs, makers, and creators who have followed their passions and share a commitment to our town and the surrounding communities.

We hope this guide will inspire discovery and connection. Browse it, display it, share it, and most importantly, use it. Shop, dine, drink, throw a party, buy a house, renovate, decorate. Whether you’re a visitor, newcomer (welcome!), or a longtime local, we are sure you will find something within these pages that will help enhance your life and enjoy our city to the fullest.

To each member, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for being a part of this powerful and collective network. It is an honor to tell your story, and I can’t wait to share more about your in the coming year.

To Newport Beach at large, thank you! And to our readers, thank you for using this guide. Next time you’re at one of these businesses, be sure to stop by and meet the people that make Newport Beach such a special place to live, work, and play — and don’t forget to tell them Scout sent you!
