Editor Note 02

Welcome to The Scout Guide Newport Beach Volume 1. What a privilege it is to introduce The Scout Guide’s local-loving mission on the West Coast. Whether you’re a visitor, newcomer, or longtime local, my hope is that this Guide will inspire discovery and connection. Browse it, display it, share it – but most importantly, use it. In doing so, we strengthen each other and our community, investing in Newport Beach’s even more beautiful tomorrow.

The 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. It is an honor to tell your story.

I am so grateful for the warm reception and enthusiasm that you’ve offered my small business. It’s a testament both to our community and the power of local businesses supporting one another. There are simply too many talented people to thank for their support, but I would be remiss not to express my gratitude for the inaugural volume’s wonderful team – photographer Mike Radford, Makenzi Hogan and Jane O’Connor.

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