Living in Newport Beach: Fashion Island

Fashion Island

Fashion Island, Newport Beach, CA

Fashion Island is an upscale, open-air shopping center in Newport Beach, California owned by The Irvine Company. Both this and South Coast Plaza are the most recognizable shopping centers in Orange County.

Opened in 1967, it was part of Newport Center. In 1988, the center underwent a major expansion and renovation, adding the Island Terrace Food Court, an eight-screen movie theater, and three new avenues of shops. There is a circular courtyard with an animated fountain that shoots jets of water up to 30 feet (9.1 m) high, known as the “Iris Fountain” because of the radial-leaves pattern of its marble lining coupled with the jets of water that suggests the iris plant (Wikipedia).

Fashion Island is located at 401 Newport Center Drive, Newport Beach, CA 92660.

Retail and dining hours: Mon-Fri 10am to 9pm | Sat 10am to 7pm | Sun 11am to 6pm (Store hours vary; please check with individual stores and restaurants for their hours).
