Is Newport Beach Conservative?
Please don't pollute the California forum, especially "where to move" threads, with questions about the political leanings of current residents.

Affluent Americans (as well as those of more moderate means), whether they are on one side of the aisle or the other, politically, ought to be able to live peacefully in the same neighborhoods.

So if you like horses, and lots of acreage Portola Valley. If you want neighbors like Steph Curry and Joe Lacob, owner of the Warriors, then it's Atherton. If you want to live in a small community, with zero commercial zones, and be neighbors to daughters of billionaire families from overseas then do Hillsborough.

If forced to pick from ONLY those 4 (odd), I’d pick Manhattan Beach ( other areas of LA I would choose ahead of it).

This makes them sound almost the same, but the two places feel very different to me.

If the OP was really affluent, he'd hire someone else to cruise the internet listings.

Not on your list. I'd choose either Monterey/Carmel or San Luis Obispo/Morro Bay.
