Artwork of Palm and Pier Glow at Huntington Beach California Pier

Huntington Beach -- Have you seen the Huntington Beach Pier when it lights up with an outer glow? No? Well the camera doesn't lie...but the picture can be manipulated to create an illusion or different perspective and attitude.

The Huntington Beach Pier is the top recognizable icon, according to tourism studies performed in Huntington Beach. The pier can represent fun, color because of its glowing red-domed restaurant, and from a distance it is recognizable for its prominent horizontal shape.

When visiting Huntington Beach on vacation or business, be sure to step outside your hotel at the Hilton or Hyatt and wander just a few short blocks (four or five) along the paved sand path to the pier. It will take approx. 10 - 15 minutes walking, or a minute riding a bike or driving a car.

The Huntington Beach Pier was first built in the early 1900's but has been knocked down by fierce storms numerous times. The current pier was the first constructed with an engineering process to withstand what other reincarnations could not.
