Newport No. 2 for Yahoo! holiday decorations ranking

Yahoo! Travel has rated Newport Beach as one of the top destinations nationwide to see holiday lights, coming in second to New York and ahead of Walt Disney World, according to a Yahoo! news article.

“For more than a century, Newport Beach’s Christmas Boat Parade has delighted spectators with a ‘Christmas-sea’ feeling all its own,” according to the Nov. 22 article. “A fine flotilla of some 200 vibrantly decorated vessels, from multimillion-dollar yachts right down to simple canoes, glides through Newport Harbor as holiday music and costumed carolers fill the air with melodious merrymaking.”

The article also cites Newport’s annual Ring of Lights contest as reason enough to consider the city as one of the brightest in the nation for holiday light viewing.

No. 1 on the list of 10 is New York City with the Rockefeller Center holiday display. Other places on the list include Denver, Chicago, Baltimore and San Antonio.

I highly encourage you to check out Newport Beach’s Christmas Boat Parade this month–especially now that it ranks as #2 for holiday decorations in the nation! And it’s free; yet another great reason to check it out December 14th through the 18th!  View all about it here: Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade.

By the way, I will be one of the judges this year–I’m very excited about it! Stop by on the first night of the parade (the 14th) and say hello!
