“Great place for cycling - but may be cold & windy...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

SO here you are... In Southern California... SO - it's going to be hot, hot, hot... Maybe not - it may be cold & windy...
However, it's a beautiful coastline, with great beaches and it's perfect for biking - but remember that you will hit wind one way (either going or coming), so take that into account as you decide how far to ride...

“Best Beaches in Orange County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I live in Huntington Beach and constantly visit the beaches in the area with the best two beaches being Newport Beach and Huntington City Beach.

Huntington State Beach is also in our area but is the dirtier version of Huntington City Beach.

Huntington City Beach has the famous Huntington Pier and Main Street area that overflows with summer fun. The crowds are big but the fun is even bigger. Nothing better than getting some sun on the sand and then walking down the pier to get a milkshake at Ruby's.

Newport Beach is the nicest beach in the area when it comes to overall beach quality. The downtown scene of the Newport Pier and Balboa Pier do not compare to Huntington. The Newport Pier is dirty as is the surrounding area, skip it and go to the Balboa Pier, Balboa Island and fun zone.

The best place to enjoy the beach is either from 6th street to 13th street as the crowds are the smallest or anywere north of 32nd street. Be warned, the nicer areas of the beach may be less crowded by have bigger waves and stronger currents.

If you have kids, go to Corona Del Mar state beach as the waves are usually smaller and safer (Some weeks during summer are just too dangerous so always check with lifeguards)

“Just beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We drove south to Laguna Beach and really enjoyed taking in all the sites. It's worth the time to take a nice drive.
