Welcome to Huntington Beach!

Although beaches are hardly a novelty on the central coast of California, Huntington Beach has distinguished itself as the state's premier surfing contest location and is aptly nicknamed Surf City USA®. Rock and roll giants Jan and Dean recorded the song Surf City in 1963, helping to increase interest in the area. True to its nickname, Huntington Beach is home to the International Surfing Museum, the Surfing Walk of Fame and the U.S. Open of Surfing. Beach volleyball, frisbee-golf, beach barbecues and walking in the state parks are perfect activities for visitors eager to take advantage of the year-round temperate climate. Tourists can also check out the local cultural scene at such venues as the Huntington Beach Playhouse and the Huntington Beach Art Center. Restaurants, bars and accommodations are on hand to suit all tastes and many of Los Angeles' major attractions are only minutes away.
