Huntington Beach: Tips for Visitors 

It's an old cliché but life really is a beach, in Huntington, at least. People don't dress too fancy there.  Downtown Main Street and the pier should be your starting point. If you see nothing else, you'll remember those spots are the landmarks.   

Main Street is where you can begin your search for food. There are dozens of restaurants with tables outside on the sidewalks. If you are looking for a T-shirt, swim suit, some sun block and a roll of film for you camera, the little shops will have the items you are seeking. People walking, dining, shopping, skating, bicycling, jogging, playing volleyball, throwing Frisbees, flying kites, swimming, surfing, fishing off the pier and basking in the sun will greet you. See surfers off shore, bobbing up and down on their boards waiting to catch the best wave.

You'll need to make a trip to South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa, or Fashion Island in Newport Beach for upscale shopping.

There's no snorkeling, scuba diving, boating or jet skiing off the beach because the currents are simply too strong.  Waves rush in and back out again. With a styrofoam boogie board available for rent or sold at stores for $20 - $40, one can get the feeling of skiing or sledding on water. Surfboard rentals and lessons are also available along the Huntington coastline.
