About Huntington Beach 

Huntington Beach is Surf City USA®. Where the quintessential mild and mellow Southern California beach lifestyle began and still perseveres; where pretentiousness takes a back seat to casual and cool. Huntington Beach is a welcoming town where your clients can feel at home on the sand. With the most consistent waves on the West Coast and surfing as a way of life, this is the only place that can truly be called Surf City USA.

Southern California’s Central Hub. Get away from it all on over 10 miles/16 kilometers of pristine coastline, drive the iconic Pacific Coast Highway, then visit Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Universal Studios, and other famous Southern California locales. The perfect central hub for a SoCal vacation, Huntington Beach is only 45 minutes from Los Angeles and 1 hour from San Diego.

For the ultimate in laidback luxury, try Huntington Beach’s upscale beach hotels. Discover ocean views, true California cuisine, live entertainment at the Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa, the newly opened Paséa Hotel & Spa, experience the newly renovated Waterfront Beach Resort, a Hilton Hotel, and live the HB life at the boutique Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel.
