Surf and sand aside, Huntington Beach encourages other ways to explore its stunning coastline and rich surf heritage. Plus, its central location in Southern California makes it an ideal hub to experience the region’s top attractions.
Stroll the heart of town - the iconic Huntington Beach Pier - to experience one of the longest piers - 1,850 feet to be exact - on the West Coast. The leisurely jaunt will afford you panoramic views of Catalina Island, Newport Beach, Long Beach, San Pedro, and, of course, the best surf action in Surf City USA.
Along Main Street, two cultural centers capture surf culture and national art: the beloved Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum, featuring rotating surf-centric exhibits and the World’s Largest Surfboard, and the Huntington Beach Art Center, presenting curated collections aimed at experimentation, education, and experience.
On every Tuesday night, the first three blocks of Main Street are taken over by Surf City Nights, a community-driven farmers market and street fair featuring fresh local produce, local food vendors and artisans, children’s entertainment, and live music.
Right here in Orange County are premier amusement parks, a world-class science center, an aquarium, and a zoo—and Huntington Beach sits conveniently in the middle of it all. An ideal home base for visitors exploring Orange, Los Angeles, and San Diego counties, Surf City USA serves as a hub for various day trips, like the Hollywood Sign to the north, Disneyland to the east, and Legoland to the south.
