Surf City Nights

There are few cities as iconic as Huntington Beach, CA. It is, after all, Surf City!

We missed the International Surfing Championships (and the post-event riot!), but have gone to Dog Beach and last night to Surf City Nights. That’s a weekly street fair held year-round on Main Street, reaching inland from the Pacific Coast Highway/Huntington Beach Pier.

It’s mid-range as street fairs go, but the night was lovely and it seemed the perfect California experience for my niece Melissa. She’s in SoCal for the first time from Milwaukee.

There are food and craft vendors, a farmers market and street performers. The vibe was good.

We took in Main Street then headed toward the beach for dinner at Sandy’s, followed by a chilly stroll down the pier.

There’s a lot to like about this lifestyle.
