Press Trip Request

Visit Huntington Beach hosts press trips designed to give qualified journalists the first-hand experience necessary to make their stories stand out. Individual press trips allow for a customized itinerary based on a journalist's interests and offer flexible scheduling options.

Depending on the nature of the assignment, Visit Huntington Beach can assist with story ideas, information and recommendations, as well as coordinating suggested itineraries. Please note that all arrangements are provided through the discretion of Visit Huntington Beach and its partners and are subject to the availability and interest of each facility. Black-out periods may be experienced during the year, which may necessitate a press rate, especially for hotel accommodations.

Please allow 4-6 weeks advance notice for media hosting and itinerary assistance.

If you are interested in working with Visit Huntington Beach to coordinate an individual press trip, please submit the following information via the form below:

  • Assignment letters and/or copies of your most recently published articles or photographs. Please include details  on the demographics, circulation and scheduled print date for your assigned publication or information on those to whom you will be pitching.
  • Indicate if your article will include mention of suppliers' services or if it is a destination-only piece (i.e. hotel mentions, "if you go" fact boxes, etc.)
  • For individual press trips, be specific with your requests. Please be prepared to suggest dates of arrival and departure and, if possible, alternate dates. Indicate if you need accommodations, admission to attractions and/or an itinerary. We also need to know whether your travel budget includes costs for any or all of the services that are arranged by our office.
