Surfer at Sunset on Huntington Beach

Hit the Beach

It’s hard to believe that summer’s almost over – back to school and vacations ending usually means farewell to the beach and to summertime fun for many. However, one of the coolest things about Southern California is our wonderfully temperate days throughout the year. So, it’s almost always a good time to hit the beach, and what beaches we have! While it’s common knowledge that SoCal has some of the best beaches in the country, we bet you didn’t know that our local and regional beaches were included in the list of top 10 winners in USA Today's 10 Best California Beaches category.

Less than 30 minutes away is Santa Monica State Beach, along with the famous Santa Monica Pier. This beautiful and popular beach was ranked number 10. Next up are Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach, which were awarded third- and fourth-place, respectively. Lastly, is Huntington City Beach, which was ranked #1. Known as Surf City U.S.A, this fabulous location is also ideal for boogie boarding, swimming, and lounging on the beach. Additional top ten listings included Newport Municipal Beach, Carmel Beach, Natural Bridges State Beach, McClures Beach, and Coronado Beach in San Diego.
