Huntington Beach “Surf City” U.S.A.

No place in America (and possibly the world) is known for its beaches like L.A. is. Mind you, we’re talking about a city that in many ways was molded from beach culture. From the legendary Surfest of Manhattan Beach to the street performing culture of Venice to the industrial flatlands of Long Beach, few cities can claim such a close, tightly knit relationship with their oceanic neighbors.

Watching the sun set from the western beaches is always a humbling experience. Sun rays dancing off the ocean’s ripples. Palm trees gently swaying in the breeze. These are just some of what makes watching the sun go down over southern California and experience that can be enjoyed from few other places on earth.

West of the city there’s Venice Beach, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach. To the south you have Long Beach, Seal Beach, Sunset Beach, Newport Beach and yes, the Orange County seaside paradise Huntington Beach.

Named after American businessman Henry E. Huntington, Huntington Beach is the largest beach city in Orange County and is bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the southwest, Costa Mesa on the east, Westminster on the north and the Fountain Valley on the northeast.

Known for its long, (all 9.5-miles of) sandy beaches, surfing and beach culture, its ocean waves are enhanced by the swells around the Catalina Island giving it its nickname of “Surf City, USA“.
