Huntington Beach

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.

On the Beach

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.

Break for the beach !

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 and Cons
  • 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!
