surfer at pier

Huntington Beach, California's concrete pier is the center-stone of the downtown, anchoring Pacific Coast Highway and Huntington City Beach to Main Street. Seen in the photograph are two surfers heading home at sunset after an evening surfing session. Wearing wetsuits allows them to keep warm when the ocean temperatures reach below 60 degrees. The Pier is lit with snowflake lights, telling you that this is the holiday season in which these decorative lights are strewn each year around Dec. 1 through Jan 5 of the new year.


When visiting, be sure to take a stroll on the pie. At the end of the structure is a Ruby's Surf City Diner offering salads, burgers, sandwiches, malts, sodas, and all the popular foods that tourists and local residents love.  The prices are affordable and the views outstanding.
