Let’s be honest. You’re here to relax on the beach and get a nice glow. With 276 days of sun in Huntington Beach it’s hard to stay away from the sand. Make sure you load up on sunscreen before leaving your hotel (see our packing list below) and bring a bottle of water. Popular sunbathing locations include just North and just South of the Huntington Beach Pier. Watch the surfers and fisherman or grab a milkshake from Rudy’s at the end of the Pier.
Before heading to the beach, grab a healthy snack on 5th Street. Banzai Bowl and North Shore Poke Co. are both local favorites, offering carry out options for when you’re on the go. The Maui Sunrise acai bowl is a favorite at Banzai Bowl while you can build your own bowl at North Shore Poke (we recommend poke with the waimea sauce and avocado). Lines typically stretch out the door for both locations, especially on weekends, so we recommend calling your order in ahead of time for both locations!
There are countless bike rental shops in Huntington Beach but the best place to ride is undoubtedly the Ocean Strand which runs parallel to Pacific Coast Highway and the Pacific for all 10 miles of beach.
The world famous Rainbow cocktail drink features 5 different frozen cocktails all stacked on top of each other to make a rainbow of color and flavor. Sit back, relax and sip on the Aloha Grill patio as you watch the hustle and bustle of Main Street below.
Grab some blankets and fire wood then head to the beach to claim one of our over 500 beach bonfire rings. Watch the sun set behind the ocean while roasting marshmallows for s’mores.
The busiest night on Main Street, Surf City Nights Street Fair and Farmers Market takes place every Tuesday night. Grab some fresh produce, find locally made souvenirs or enjoy the live entertainment on the first 3 blocks of Main Street and first block of 5th Street. Come hungry for the food vendors and countless Taco Tuesday deals at Downtown eateries.
Start the party at Blackbull Chophouse located in Downtown Huntington Beach. Dance away to the DJ and take a spin on “Bodacious”, the mechanical bull.
