Located in the sunny state of Southern California, Huntington Beach is a stunning seaside city situated in the Orange County. The city is known for its long stretches of golden and sandy beaches, along with surfing and mild weather. Huntington Beach is also popularly known as the ‘Surf City’, due to its excellent quality of waves and surfing options available throughout the year. With a population of 189,992 (US Census 2010), Huntington Beach is the largest populated beach city in the county and the 7th populous city in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim area.
Since the city is standing above a huge natural fault structure that contains oil, the primary source of income is mainly from oil extraction. However, the oil has drastically depleted and the day is not far when Huntington Beach’s economy will greatly depend on tourism for growth. Apart from that, the city is also renowned for being the surfing capital of the nation. From beautiful tourist attractions including museums and art centers to shopping malls, fine dining and a vibrant beach culture, Huntington Beach is the place to be this summer.
