Huntington Beach, California, also known as Surf City USA is one of my top picks for vacation spots.
Here are five reasons why I visit it as much as I can.
1. It’s Walkable
The entire city is so accessible. From the world-famous Huntington Beach Pier to the outdoor shopping mall Pac City you can explore without ever getting in a car.
2. It’s Dog Friendly
Hotels, restaurants, and stores welcome you and your pets with open arms. There is a dog beach that goes for miles so your fur babies can enjoy the ocean.
3. It’s Casual
Surf City USA does not require you to be dressed up for anything. Flip flops and t-shirts are the norms here and there is no pressure to be fancy.
4. It’s Loaded With Events
Surfing competitions, beach volleyball tournaments, concerts and a huge Fourth of July celebration are just a few of the regular events going on in Huntington Beach. Check their website www.surfcityusa.com for specific dates.
5. It’s Got Something For Everyone
HB is ideal for anyone looking to take a beachside break. It’s family-friendly with lots for kids, a great romantic escape for couples, a fun girls getaway or a wonderful wellness retreat.
