Any traveler knows that the best part of a vacation is the goodies you get to bring home after to remind you of your adventures forever. Well Balboa Island businesses know this so they’ve come up with some fun ways to help you bring your island experiences home with you to enjoy for years to come.

Among the many unique things you can find on the island, flags are a fan favorite and you will see them all over the islands as the locals are just as fond of them as the visitors. There are flags for every holiday, season, occasion or party so find a few that remind you of your lazy days on the Island and bring them home to impress your friends and neighbors. There’s also a variety of beautiful photography, paintings and post cards to keep as memorabilia of your favorite beach spots, lookouts and day trips on and around the Island. There is a painting or post card of just about every important vista you may have discovered on your trip so you will never have to rely solely on your “photographic” memory!

Island Time, one of Balboa Island’s main souvenir and gift shops, features lots of ways for you to bring a piece of Balboa and Newport Beach home with you. They have a big selection of hats, t-shirts, sweatshirts, swim cover-ups, posters, key chains, cups and more! So go ahead and make your friends jealous – dress like a Balboa Islander all year no matter where you live!

Enjoy the Island while you’re here but remember to bring home a few things home to help you keep in mind your cherished vacation days until you can come back and visit again!
