Explore Huntington Beach
This quintessential Southern California beach city features the most consistent waves on the West Coast, earning Huntington Beach the nickname, Surf City USA®. Home to the US Open of Surfing and the famous Huntington Beach Pier, the beaches here offer amenities including parking, restrooms, cold-water showers, beach volleyball courts and fire pits.
With stores and plenty of cafes and restaurants, the shopping, dining and nightlife on Main Street includes a selection of surf shops and clothing, from flagship superstores to family-run board shops. Downtown Huntington Beach is also known for its nightlife, with live bands, dancing and diverse restaurants, craft beer and wine bars.
Huntington Beach is quite literally a dog owner's paradise. Named one of the country's top 10 Fido-friendly beaches by Fido Friendly Magazine, 1.5-mile "Dog Beach" is the perfect place to spend a few hours with your furry BFF. And, each September, the city hosts its annual Surf City Surf Dog, a weekend-long event that features everything from a fashion show to a canine surfing competition.
