Huntington Beach is called Surf City and rightfully so. It is a surfer’s paradise. But there is more to the seaside city in California than surfing. You will want to explore the sandy beach that stretches almost ten miles. The mild weather is ideal for beach front fun and the city has an amazing beach culture. It is a perennial favorite of Californians and many visitors from beyond the state. While a vacation at Huntington Beach can be fun, it can also be a misfire if you don’t plan well.
About Huntington Beach

One of the quintessential Huntington Beach travel tips is keep aside a day for all your beachfront fun. Surfing, sunbathing, biking, exploring Laguna Beach and Newport Beach if you want, the strolls on the beach and picnicking will certainly take one full day. Do not include downtown Huntington Beach or shopping and dining in this plan. Designate another full day for exploring the town. You can play laser tag at Fuzion or try your skills at paintball and that can be a few hours the next day.
You should plan to have at least one dinner in downtown Huntington Beach. You can enjoy a walk on the pier after dinner. Set aside one evening to enjoy the sunset at Huntington Beach and then you can indulge in bird watching at Bolsa Chica followed by a brunch at Sugar Shack Café and then you can check out the International Surfing Museum. Since you would be starting early this day there is plenty you can cover. You can shop in downtown Huntington Beach in the evening during the same day and catch a bonfire that evening.
