Neighborhood Guide: Lido Marina Village/ Cannery Village
With its chic charm and harbor views, Lido Marina Village is a popular destination for families, foodies and fashionistas alike. The seaside center plays host to an assembly of fashion-forward boutiques, cozy cafes, farm-to-table restaurants, sea-inspired murals and more. Admire the boat-lined bay and white brick storefronts as you pop into stylish shops like Marrow Fine, Eberjey and Jenni Kayne.
Neighboring the contemporary Lido Marina Village is Cannery Village—a place where fishermen used to count their hauls and swap stories of the sea. This historic village has seen a resurgence in recent years—canning factories, old warehouses and docks have been transformed into charming eateries, serving some of the freshest seafood in town. So whether you’re in the mood for some retail therapy or sensational seafood, these adjoining neighborhoods are sure to please!
Check in to the coastal-chic Lido House hotel! Set in a building that once housed Newport Beach’s City Hall, this Cap Cod-style retreat boasts a nautical, all-American feel that’ll have you smitten.

With a cabana-lined pool deck, signature restaurant (The Mayor’s Table) and proximity to the marina, beaches, restaurants and boutiques, Lido House is an ideal hub for exploring the best of Newport Beach.
Lido Marina Village and Cannery Village are known for their collection of top-notch restaurants. From quaint cafes like Alta Coffee Company and bakeries like Rye Goods to ingredient-focused hotspots like Malibu Farm, Bluewater Grill and Lido Bottle Works, the places to sip and savor are endless.

And if you’re a seafood savant, The Cannery is a must-visit for a lobster roll and an order of baked Peruvian scallops.
