During the warm and smoggy summer months, the coast south of Newport Beach is a popular escape from the heat and stagnant air of the interior. Throughout the warmest season, the four major state park campgrounds and numerous state beaches along this 65.4-mile section are full to overflowing. The coastal towns have attempted to accommodate the vast influx of tourists by lining the streets with restaurants, motels, fast foods, and surf shops. Roads traveled in this section vary from busy thoroughfares to quiet residential streets. Shoulders are nonexistent in towns and are frequently used for beach parking in the country. The best feature of this area is the gently rolling terrain—perfect for riding.
