Actually a neighborhood within Newport Beach, the village of Corona del Mar was settled in the early 20th century and grew from a muddy, isolated outpost into a seaside community known for its beaches, quaint downtown, small-town vibe and small but lively nightlife scene.

As of the 2000 census, Corona del Mar had 13,407 people, 6,885 households, and 3,957 families. It encompasses the 92625 zip code and has its own city council representative, post office, library branch and chamber of commerce.

Summer brings swarms of tourists to CDM beaches — Big Corona State Beach and Little Corona — as well as to the shops and restaurants along Pacific Coast Highway.

The oceanfront climate of Corona del Mar means temperatures that rarely dip below 64 degrees or above 73 degrees. For more information, check out the Corona del Mar report on weather.com.

Trivia: Corona del Mar was the setting for the Fox television show, Arrested Development, as well as the location for several shots in Gilligan’s Island.

Schools include Harbor View Elementary and Lincoln Elementary, both public schools that serve K-6 grades; and Harbor Day, a private school that serves K-8 grades. Corona Del Mar Middle School and High School share a campus that is actually not in Corona del Mar, but in Newport Beach.
