Huntington Beach, trademarked as “Surf City, U.S.A.”, is the ultimate Southern California beach town with an 8.5-mile stretch of sandy beach, mild climate and excellent surfing with consistent waves all year long.
Named the "Best City to Live in Orange County" by Orange County Register readers, Huntington Beach offers apartment residents a charming community with ideal weather, a diversified economy overflowing with good jobs, an excellent educational system, boat marinas, numerous parks, and exemplary health care.
Beach culture, outdoor lifestyle and a relaxed vibe are Huntington Beach hallmarks. Construction of any kind on the beach is prohibited without a vote of the people, allowing the community to retain its natural tie to the ocean with unobstructed views.
Activity buzzes down by the pier and Main Street with world-class events through the year, a weekly farmer’s market, shopping including every major surf label, the International Museum of Surfing, and endless restaurant options for apartment residents to enjoy.
The iconic U.S. Open of Surfing is held at the pier each year. The city is also famous for its Fourth of July parade, held since 1904. The SoCal Independent Film Festival takes place every September.
During the winter, the annual Cruise of Lights Boat Tour is held in Huntington Harbour. The Surf City USA marathon is held every February with more than 20,000 runners.
Huntington Beach also hosts car shows, and the community-spirited Surf City Nights is held every Tuesday night during the entire year. The city also has a very large Central Park and the Bolsa Chica Wetlands contain numerous trails and scenic routes.
Moving inland, amenities abound for just about anything apartment residents could need on Huntington Beach’s main thoroughfare of Beach Boulevard.
Top employers in the city include Boeing, Quicksilver, Cambro Manufacturing, and C&D Aerospace.
With nearly 200,000 residents, it’s the most populated beach town in Orange County.
Eight-six percent of the population is under the age of 65 and, among that group, the population demographic is spread out consistently with a median age of 41 years.
