Take A Walk In Nature
The largest saltwater marsh between the Monterey Bay and the Tijuana River Estuary, the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve covers 1,400 acres of fresh and saltwater wetlands habitat, a boardwalk over the marsh, and five miles of easy trails through the lowlands and mesas. Let our guide (insert link) lead the way.
A stroll along the Huntington Beach Pier—the longest recreational pier on the West Coast—offers stunning views at any time of day, but the scene is especially spectacular at sunset. Vibrant shades of orange, pink, purple, and red ignite the sky at sunset throughout the year, and with our “endless summer,” you can enjoy it outdoors all year round. Once you reach the end, split a sweet milkshake at Ruby’s Diner or a tropical cocktail at Jan & Dean’s Tiki Lounge.
Not only is Huntington Central Park the biggest in Surf City USA, it’s also the largest and lushest in all of Orange County. Meandering trails, wildflowers, lakes, and a “Secret Garden” set the stage for a whimsical adventure. Check out our guide to plan your visit.

Breweries, Wine Tastings, & Distillery Tastings
Cheers to love at one of Huntington Beach’s locals-run breweries, wine bars, and distilleries. Check out Huntington Beach tasting room guide here.
Share a flight of award-winning brews at Four Sons Brewing, Riip Beer Co., or newly minted Golden Road Brewing, all which also offer delicious food, be it cooked in-house at Golden Road, served via food truck at Four Sons, or from a neighboring eatery at Riip. Bonus sip: Four Sons recently opened a reservation-only distillery tasting room just steps from their original taproom, pouring a themed, rotating selection of hand-produced spirits—gin, vodka, and whiskey—and craft cocktails on Friday and Saturday nights.
Share a flight and a bite and call it a night at Main Street Wine Company, located just three blocks from the pier and specializing in boutique California wines. Craft beers are also on tap.
Surf City Still Works pours handcrafted spirits and cocktails, featuring aptly named libations, flights, and striking bottle labels designed by local artists. Be your poison bourbon, gin, rum, vodka, or whiskey, they make it.

Cozy Up Next To A Beach Bonfire

Three out of five of Surf City USA’s distinct beaches house fire pits, including Huntington City Beach, Huntington State Beach, and Bolsa Chica State Beach. Sure, you can keep each other warm, but why not let Huntington Beach’s famed tradition help. Our guide will tell you everything you need to know, including how to score your very own bonfire butler.
