Sand, Sun, Surf, Celebrations
Surf City USA, otherwise known as Huntington Beach, California, is anything but a sleepy beach town. The waves may lap lazily up along the eight-and-a-half mile long line of beach, and the people who live in town may move at a more relaxed pace that their neighbors in Los Angeles, but there's never a boring day in Huntington Beach. Apartment renters who live in this town can enjoy basking in the sun and frolicking in the waves at the beach all day before hitting up the town for an evening of good food and good friends, dancing the night away at one of the city's night clubs. There are around 200,000 residents of Huntington Beach, so there are plenty of people to connect with and lots of fun to be had in town.
It's no accident that Huntington Beach is known as Surf City USA. Its placement on the California coast gives it access to some of the best waves in the state all year round. The water's not too cold and the weather is almost always sunny and warm. Pair great conditions with a beach over eight miles long, and you've got quite the surf spot. If you're never surfed before, this is one sport that's definitely worth a try. There's nothing quite like the feel of the rush of a wave beneath you, lifting you up and carrying you into shore. Renters can take surf lessons along the beach or, if they're brave enough, fly above the waves on a kite board. If these sports are a little too extreme, there's also body boarding, beach volleyball and, of course, the highly competitive sports of extreme sunbathing and marathon beach dozing.
When You're Alone and Life is Making You Lonely You Can Always Go...
If you get tired of the sun and surf on the beach (weirdo), you can always head down to Main Street. Renters who are into shopping can find all the latest in beach town fashion and boutique stores where they can pick up unique items for the apartment. Restaurants, serving all types of food, line the streets and after the sun sinks into the Pacific, nightclubs and bars come to life. All the amenities of Main Street can be enjoyed from Wednesday through Monday. On Tuesdays, the shops and restaurants close down (though its still possible to grab a bite to eat or hit the shops in other parts of town) to accommodate the eclectic crowd at Surf City Nights. This street fair features vendors hawking handmade, artistic goods and performance artists that come out to entertain the city's citizens and tourists. Apartment renters can sit back and enjoy the show or get involved in one of the acts themselves.
The pace of life is relaxed and easy in Huntington Beach, but that doesn't mean that apartment renters don't need a way to get away from it all every once in a while. Catalina Island is located about an hour to the southwest of Huntington Beach and is a great place to go to get away from the LA crowds to enjoy the beauty of nature. There are hotels to stay at on the island and campgrounds that really let visitors feel like they’re getting back to nature. Because it's so far away from everything, Catalina is home to some pristine natural ecosystems, both above and below the water. Watch out for the dolphins that frequent the waters around the island. They're often spotted from shore, the ferry, kayaks, and even from beneath the waves when they come in for a close encounter with snorkelers and swimmers.
