New Years Eve in Huntington Beach will be awesome and while you are there don't miss out on some of the incredible activities on offer in this awesome beachside city.
Immerse yourself in
beach life and take a stroll out on Huntington Beach Pier to watch
the surfers ride the waves, marvel at the beautiful sunset, then
grab a bite to eat at Ruby's at the end of the pier.
Keep yourself in Downtown Huntington Beach for the relaxed vibe of the cafes, restaurants and bars and every Tuesday between 5pm and 9pm there is the Surf City Nights Street Fair and Farmers Market. Peruse the stalls, enjoy the entertainment and just kick back and relax.
Take to the water with kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, sailing and, if you are feeling like an old romantic, you can take a sunset gondola ride on the Huntington Harbour Canals.
For a quirky afternoon out and a little shopping, head to Old World Village, where you can wander the cobbled streets and peruse the shops and galleries. Pop into a salon for a massage or other spa treatments, enjoy a coffee and bite to eat in coffee shops and cafes and buy some souvenirs and handicrafts in some of the speciality shops.
There is also the Bella Terra Mall to pacify the inner shopping beast, with great boutiques and lots of fantastic restaurants, this has a real luxurious feel to it with lush gardens and fountains.
