Seal Beach, California -When driving on
Main Street in Seal Beach, there are lots of crosswalks, and you never know what
you will see. In the photo above, a man is driving a bike/cart and his dogs are
getting quite a ride!
How many Main Streets can you find where
folks stop to say hi? How many Main Streets in California offer free
parking near the beach? While the City of Seal Beach is trying to ease out
the free parking offerings, this tourist-friendly and locals-friendly city made
for fun boutique shopping is still the kind of place we recommend that you go
spend some time and money exploring.
When you drive along Seal Beach's Main
Street, keep your eyes on the road because there are several crosswalks and they
are amply used. Pedestrians have the right of way so you definitely need
to stop and let whatever type of traffic in the lanes make safe crossing.
The closest Main Street to Seal Beach is
in Huntington Beach. It includes a similar layout but offers more outdoor
dining, more traffic, a narrower scope of shops and runs just about the same
number of blocks, four or five. It does charge for parking, features more
high-rise buildings and has several big projects online. Inch for inch, the
place we go to unwind, to shop and kick back is Seal Beach.
