Visit Huntington Beach
With 10 miles of broad sand beaches and a vibrant downtown filled with shopping and dining, Huntington Beach blends surfing's laid-back spirit with a relaxed, contemporary style to create a destination like nowhere else on the California coast.
Huntington Beach is an active, energetic town where life is lived outdoors, especially along the oceanfront. Every day, residents and visitors gather to surf, play beach volleyball, or walk and bicycle along the famed paved beach path called the Ocean Strand.
But there's more to Surf City USA than its incredible beaches. The city's great green space, 365-acre Huntington Central Park, is filled with recreational activities: horseback riding, walking paths, a sports complex, and even a disc golf course. Huntington Beach is also a city with a longstanding commitment to the environment, and the restored Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve and Huntington Beach Wetlands are some of the most vital areas in Southern California, with more than 200 bird species spotted in these wetlands.
For a bit of pampering, try one of several day spas in Huntington Beach. Ranging from the ultimate luxury experience to walk-in foot massages, Huntington Beach day spas are the place to relax after getting your fill of the sun on the beach.
