Huntington Beach is a seaside city in Orange County located 35 miles southeast of Downtown Los Angeles. Homes range from starter condominiums to multi-million homes with boat docks included over looking the channels of the harbor. The location on the coast is ideal for commuting up to LA or down to South Orange County.
Its estimated 2019 population was 199,223. It is bordered by Bolsa Chica Basin State Marine Conservation Area on the west, the Pacific Ocean on the southwest, by Seal Beach on the northwest, by Westminster on the north, by Fountain Valley, on the northeast, by Costa Mesa on the east, and by Newport Beach on the southeast.
Huntington Beach (locally called "Huntington") is known for its long 9.5-mile stretch of sandy beach, mild climate, excellent surfing and beach culture. The ocean waves are enhanced by a natural effect caused by the edge-diffraction of open ocean swells around Santa Catalina Island. Swells generated predominantly from the North Pacific in winter and from a combination of Southern Hemisphere storms and hurricanes in the summer focus on Huntington Beach, creating consistent surf all year long, hence the nickname "Surf City".
