The M.A.C. Marinarena Advent Calendar, Entry 6

Entry # 6 : A new door opened. What’s behind?

Balboa, Newport Beach

Fun trip option for families, couples and solo travelers

Both a peninula and a beach, Balboa is the friendly, unassuming part of Newport Beach, California. The scenic Orange county peninsula stretches for 3 miles stretch, a harbor on one side and broad California beaches on the other. Activities to love here: riding the ferry, riding the carousel, eating Balboa ice cream bars or frozen chocolate bananas, birdwatching, surf or watch advent surfers try the waves at The Wedge, famed surfing sport with high swells.

Whether you love to celebrate Christmas or not, don’t you just love the concept of the advent calendar as a way to countdown the days ’til Christmas? With each new day, a delicious surprise. Push in a door of a chocolate filled box and revealed is a wonderful morsel. But it does not have to be a choco chunk or one of those delectable liqueur-filled chocolate as the advent calendar treat. Enjoy either of these “morsels” from from Dec 1- Dec 25:

This post was inspired by a travel office e-mail on Saxony, Germany. Saxony is an eastern state of Germany which borders Poland and the Czech Republic. Major towns within include Leipzig and the capital of Dresden. It is believed that the advent calendar was invented in Saxony in the mid-1800s.
