Huntington Beach real estate often offers the pleasures of indoor/outdoor lifestyle, making it a highly desirable place to live. Along with the rest of coastal southern California, Huntington Beach offers a pleasurable Mediterranean climate with mild winters and summers.

There is a wide-range of culinary indulgences available, many with amazing views of the ocean. A few of these include the famous Duke’s at the pier, offering libations and a tantalizing Hawaiian-themed menu and Watertable, located in the Hyatt Regency on PCH, serving upscale California cuisine.For more casual dining, Fish Camp on PCH in nearby Sunset Beach is an excellent place for fresh seafood and fun. In Huntington Harbour you will often find people kayaking, paddle-boarding, boating, fishing and enjoying other sports on the water. There is a plethora of rental companies available if you don’t have your own gear. A nod must be given to the majestic sunsets along this coastal region! Just inland from the coast, you’ll find the open fields, flowers and trees sprawling over 350-acres of park at Huntington Beach Central Park. This park is so expansive it includes fire rings, picnic facilities, four playgrounds, nature center, fishing, a dog park, golf, equestrian trails, lakes, exercise course, an amphitheater and four restaurants!
