H.B. is a very happening part of O.C. that is known as "surf city ". This is the premier place to catch the waves and experience a whole surf culture that is tremendously apparent here! Of course, you see this at the beach itself with bold, eager surfers who get an early start on breaking waves. Beyond the beach, H.B. makes sure that you know she digs (likes) surf! Many of the city's stores and restaurants include "surf" in their names or put a board or some another kind of surf symbol on their window.
OK, but, aside from surf talk, there are other things to say about H.B. She is an entertaining host with her several bars and clubs of interest in the O.C. area. There is quite a charming part of her, called Old World Village.
Mostly H.B. provides a good sense of security, as it is one of the safer (no such thing as 100% safe ever) even though heavily populated cities in southern California.
This picture was taken on a rather gray day. This did not stop and never detours the surfers, volleyball players, jogger, cyclist and other people who add to the beach culture.
Don't miss H.B. on your next greater Los Angeles trip. H.B. is only about a 30-40 min drive ( well, if traffic allows for this) from downtown L.A.
- Pros:active beach, major waves for the surfer, low overall crime for a big city.
- Cons:D.U.I. central in downtown H.B. Avoid the drunks!
- In a nutshell:Surf and about everything else's up in Huntington Beach!
For those who want to party hard in the heart of H.B night or day, be relieved that plenty of taxis are available along... more travel advice
Seeking out stories behind the city... Surf City is a phrase that stirs up debate between H.B and another California... more travel advice
