May 11th, 2017

Huntington Beach, California is one of the most popular destinations for surfing enthusiasts, thus the popular moniker for the town, Surf City, USA. The extensive white sandy beaches attract millions of tourists every year, making Huntington Beach one of the most popular destinations on the West Coast. The city itself boasts a unique hometown feel that is both laidback and invigorating at the same time.

The organization Visit Huntington Beach has put together a very helpful guide to the area’s attractions at their website: The following are some of the best things to do in and around Huntington Beach according to this guide.

Residents and visitors alike can explore the area’s five excellent beaches by soaking up the sun while surfing, playing volleyball, walking along the historic pier and organizing a beach bonfire. The beaches are all connected by a 9.5 mile trail that is perfect for bicycling, jogging or walking. There is also a long stretch of beautiful sand designed for dogs and their human friends at Huntington Dog Beach.

Surf City’s iconic Main Street and the recently created Pacific City Mall offer excellent beachfront shopping, dining and recreation facilities, including a combination of stylish bistros, fashionable boutiques, live music venues, and art galleries, just to mention a few.

Exploring what Mother Nature has to offer is also easy once you arrive in Surf City. The extensive Huntington Central Park spans 365 acres and features the famous Shipley Nature Center, a sports complex, horseback riding, walking paths, and much more. The city’s commitment to the preservation of the environment is reflected in the renovated Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve and the Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy.

Although coastal lovers enjoy playing on the beach, they also like pampering themselves from time to time. Luxurious spa facilities, walk-in massage parlors and stimulating wraps are all available after a day of fun at the sunny beaches.

Huntington State Beach is a very popular surfing destination. Fishermen will love this beach, particularly during grunion run, which takes place in the summer and involves caching fish with one’s bare hands.
