Why visit Huntington Beach in the winter time? 75 degree weather! It's sunny. Surfing, SUPing, cruising down the strand, chowing down on fresh California cuisine, and hitting up local bars – there is so much to do in Huntington Beach any time of year. We have endless variety of adventures for your memorable family getaway.

Morning

  • There are statues around downtown of Duke Paoa Kahanamoku, an Olympic swimmer who is known as the Godfather of Surfing for bringing the sport from Hawaii to the mainland.

Lunch

From sushi to sandwiches, Mediterranean to classic burgers and shakes, Huntington Beach has many restaurants to offer to fit your mood. There’s no question the good times keep rolling with live entertainment, comedy nights, dancing and much more to kick back. Sessions West Coast Deli embraces Huntington Beach's surf culture as it presents a menu of gourmet, culinary-focused sandwiches in a relaxed environment. The term “West Coast Deli” perfectly describes the marriage of a high-quality deli menu with a chill vibe that appeals to area locals and tourists, alike.

Unlike most sandwich shops in the region, Sessions proudly boasts a scratch kitchen with housemade sauces, sides, salads, and soups prepared daily. All sandwiches are made to order with fresh, locally grown produce; humanely and naturally raised meats; and locally baked bread delivered daily from local artisan, OC Baking Company. In addition, the restaurant proudly serves a selection of locally roasted coffee beverages from Kean Coffee.

Stroll throughout Pacific City, experience the beautiful, indigenous landscaping, hang out awhile in comfortable outdoor lounges, enjoy the fire pit in the evenings, view the sunset from the deck, or linger in front of the outdoor movie screen.  Enjoy music, pop-up events that will surprise and excite for short periods of time before they are gone and new ones appear, and experience, at every turn, a place that embodies the best of what SoCal culture has come to represent – freedom, creativity, entrepreneurship, and an intangible quality coveted around the world for it’s “cool” factor that is not easily duplicated but sought after nonetheless.

Evening  

After a relaxing day in the waves, strolling through downtown, or cozying up to a bonfire on the beach, Huntington Beach is the best getaway. Beachside bonfires are a Huntington Beach tradition. Families cooking hot dogs and making s’mores. Surfers warming themselves against the early evening chill. Stop by dog beach. It is dog nirvana and happiest place for you and your dogs. 


At the end of your day from Surf City’s waves, volleyball pros spiking it out on the sand, and a beautiful bike ride, enjoy a romantic ride serenaded by a gondolier like Sunset Gondola, cruise through canals and islands throughout Huntington Harbor.

So if you’re dreaming of getaway and an incredible experience, it looks like Huntington Beach. Check into an endless summer and relax at the Waterfront Beach resort, the Shorebreak, or Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa
