Seal Beach Sunset Holiday Lights Seal Beach California Pictures


Seal Beach --When November rolls around in Southern California's Seal Beach, the Seal Beach pier takes on a new glow. What a beautiful sight to behold!  Some evenings can be busy, but mostly the holidays at the pier are mellow. Often muted in a slight fog or a damp coat of dew, the evenings are just so special to grab a jacket and take a stroll on this wood-decked pier. The ocean waves crash below you as you wander out past the sand line...past the lifeguard tower where the wind picks up a little.


Shown in the photos above are the sun showing through the pier pilings, the lighted shapes on the pier lamps, and downtown Seal Beach with its small, sparkling lights. While some evenings the shops are closed after 7 or 8 p.m., that's OK. You can window shop. Spend your time wandering and looking in the windows, soak up the setting sun, grab a hot coffee, hot toddy at one of the Irish pubs in town or a tasty meal at Seal Beach classics such as Walt's Wharf where seafood is king.


It's amazing that tourists from all over the world discover little Seal Beach. It doesn't promote itself much. But that's why word gets around. People find it maintains the qualities that make visitors feel at home. You don't need hype, T-shirts and a parking ticket to remember your visit to Orange County beaches. Seal Beach seems to do fine for those who aren't fooled by the tricks of the tourism trade.
