For family fun and some time to chill, the beaches of Orange County are a great option (located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego). The town of Huntington Beach consists of five public beaches, including Huntington City Beach, Bolsa Chica State Beach, Huntington State Beach, Huntington Dog Beach and Sunset Beach. Sprawling out along the gorgeous 10-mile shoreline, with each smaller beach bringing its own amenities and charm, this is a surfing mecca and Huntington Beach reigns as the official Surf City USA. With over 70 parks and wildlife reserves including the Shipley Nature Centre, alongside great shopping, nightlife and farmers markets. There is so much to enjoy here you will be spoilt for choice, from surf lessons and boogie boarding to riding electric bikes along the boardwalks and relaxing on sunset wine cruises, Huntington is the perfect tonic to wind down on your holiday.
