I wish you were here

Surf City has the longest stretch of beach on the West Coast. The main attraction in the city is the beach, and there are a lot of attractions in the city.

There are several beaches that have their own personality. Some of them are managed by the city.

There are beaches.

Huntington City Beach.

The most popular beach in the state is the Pier. It is busy for a good reason. A clean sandy beach with fire pits and barbeques. Surfing is good most days of the year and plenty of surfers make the best of it.

If you love beach volleyball, you can either play a few games or watch teams beat the ball around the net.

On some days it gets too crowded because of the surfing and volleyball tournaments. You should check out the calendar before you arrive..

The area is so popular because of the 2 concision stands on the pier. You can rent beach equipment or find a snack at one of the places.

The place that I like the most is the one that has a large selection of bikes, surfboards and bodyboards. They have a good selection of food.

You can walk a few steps to several good restaurants if you don’t feel like eating fast food. Two of them are on the beach. Main Street has others on it.

It can be difficult to find parking. Especially on the weekend. . If you get here early, you’ll be able to find a parking spot on the beach. You can either go to one of the parking structures around Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway or the Pacific City Mall.

Dog beach in Huntington.

A place for dogs and their owners. It is located under a cliff on the Pacific Coast Highway.

Even if you don’t own a dog, you can still come here to watch the dogs train their owners how to catch a frisbee or ball.

Bolsa Chica State Beach is a beach.

One of the best beaches for beginners. The shallow waters make it ideal for families with smaller children.

The beach is located between Warner Avenue and Seapoint Street and is to the north of the pier.

Bolca Chica Wildlife Preserve is located across the street. A wetlands area with a large variety of animals and plants. Here is where you can read more.

Huntington State Beach is located in Huntington, Rhode Island.

This beach is great for bodyboarding. Swimmers have more room to have fun with the limited surfing areas.

There are a lot of fire rings, barbeques, restrooms and showers at this beach. It has ramps and designated disabled parking areas.

This is located between Beach Boulevard and the south of the Pier.

The bikers are biking.

Huntington Beach has a great beach bike trail. It is safe and very long. The trail begins at the south end of the state beach and goes through the city of HB before ending at Bolsa Chica state beach. It runs for 8 miles on paved and level ground.

You can continue through Sunset Beach to the north or south.

You don’t have to own a bike. You can rent one at the store.

The Los Angeles All-Inclusive Pass is valid for a year.

The longest pier on the west coast is 1850 feet and is located in the Pacific Ocean. It has a great view of the beach and the town.

Cars and bikes are not allowed on the pier, so you can enjoy a stroll on the pier. There are a few shops that sell souvenirs and kites along the way.

The shop is located close to the tip of the pier and offers fishing supplies and rentals. You can grab everything you need.

You can find Ruby’s restaurant at the end of the pier. The views are amazing, but the food is acceptable.

This is not the end of the Pier. You can get to the very tip of the pier and see the ocean.

The mall is called Pacific City Mall.

This is the newest addition to the busy downtown Huntington Beach area. An open plan mall with many shops and restaurants.

H is one of the anchor stores at the mall.

You can find great Mexican restaurants like the one called Ola Mexican Kitchen which serves delicious Mexican food with amazing views of the ocean.

The Old Crow Smokehouse serves a variety of barbequed meats and fish.

There are books related to this.

The second floor of Pacific City Mall in Huntington Beach has a commanding view of the Pacific Coast Highway, the HB Pier, and the Ocean.

The food and service are excellent. They like their Lobster and Shrimp Enchiladas.

The complimentary chips and salsa are enough for a start, but you can also choose a more filling appetizer from the extensive menu.

The complete meal, we always order the traditional Mexican buttercake called the “Tres Leches.”

OC Dining - Bluegold - Huntington Beach
Bluegold is a restaurant with a great view. This one has a new American Cusine with seasonal ingredients. Menu items can be different depending on availability.

We recently had breakfast at their place and were able to see the beach and the pier from the windows.

We ordered scrambled eggs. They were both delicious. You can order your favorite style of potatoes if you prefer.

This place is not for early risers. They serve breakfast at 9 am.

We went for dinner and drinks. We ordered The Perfect Storm from the bar while waiting for our table to be ready. We enjoyed a few sips of this delicious cocktail before we were taken to our table.

We had a Lamb Shank with asparagus risotto and an El Chapo margarita.

We wanted to try Pumpkin Spice and Mocha Crunch cakes. The Pumpkin Spice was amazing.

The Pacific Hideaway is located in the Pacific.

The restaurant is located inside the Kimpton Shorebreak resort. The balcony has a great view.

We sat on the balcony and enjoyed our breakfast while looking at the pier and the surf.

We tried the Socal Breakfast Burrito and the Blackened Mahi Mahi taco. Both were very filling. The burrito was stuffed with a lot of things.

The finalie was a baked cockie with bread and ice cream.

Pete’s Sunset Grille is located at the intersection of Routes 66 and 395.

Pete's Sunset Grille - Huntington Beach
We found this place inside the resort. It is a few steps from the bridge to the beach and has a poor view of the ocean.

It is a good place to eat before you go to the beach. We enjoyed our time on the patio.

The Cali Rueben and Fish Tacos were tried by us. They were both good but not great. The service, drinks and dessert were excellent. We loved their Triple Layer Torte.
