Laidback Luxury

Mixed with the salty sea breeze, an air of laidback luxury flows through Huntington Beach, from its popular Main Street and beloved neighborhood gems, to its modern restaurant/retail communal hub, to a quad of upscale beachside concessions. The choices for food, shopping, and fun are endless - just like our summer. Here’s a sampling of an ideal tranquil day in Surf City USA.

Breakfast

Float downstairs for an exquisite morning bite at your home away from home's resident eatery, sipping rich, warm coffee - or a sparkling mimosa - and gazing out at the endless blue. All four beachfront resorts boast mouthwatering menus created by renowned chefs.

Morning

Relax by the shoreline courtesy of your very own beach butler - available at the Waterfront Beach Resort, a Hilton Hotel and Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa - who will treat you and yours to an effortless day at the beach. Perks include beach cabanas, complete beach setup, as well as food and beverage delivery. Your sand steward can even help curate a beach bonfire at sunset.

Lunch

There's no better way to lunch than with a view of the ocean. With a coveted post at the start of the Huntington Beach Pier, Duke's offers incredible Hawaiian fare, from fresh poke to seared ahi to its famous Hula Pie. At Pacific City, Bluegold looks to the horizon and plates farm-to-table Old World Spanish and California flavors from the land and sea.

Afternoon

Now it's time to shop and explore Downtown. Walk Historic Main Street, lined with a delicate mix of surf shops and chic boutiques. Just a short walk south of the pier, Pacific City lands visitors in a coastal cool, carefully curated world of trendy boutiques - including many local Southern California brands. When you've almost shopped until you've dropped, revisit the water with a Duffy boat rental in Huntington Harbour. Stock up on snacks for the ride at nearby Trader Joe's.

Dinner

Local restauranteur Alicia Whitney has you covered for dinner. Visit her first restaurant SeaLegs Wine Bar for boutique wine, craft beer, handcrafted cocktails, and small bites. Just across the way sits SeaSalt Woodfire Grill, Whitney's tribute to authentic Santa Maria barbecue. If staying seaside, Ways & Means Oyster House at Pacific City is a must-try, and BLK Earth Sea Spirits across from the pier specializes in hand cuts of Kobe-style beef - and a rockin' oceanfront patio.

Evening

Be transported to Venice, Italy, with a Sunset Gondola ride through the Huntington Harbour - one of Huntington Beach's most affluent and attractive neighborhoods. Cap off your night with a signature cocktail at one of our oceanfront lounges, like The BungalowSeaLegs at the Beach, or the Treehouse Bar at Paséa. Of course, don't forget about that toasty beach bonfire.
