This was a busy shopping area on the weekend and a little less so during the week. It had a number of shops and restaurants. On the negative side, it was all busy streets and had to find parking on the weekend. On the plus side, there were several seats so people could just sit and relax and read or people watch. There was more seating than I recall seeing in a downtown area before. The area consists of only a few blocks of shops and did not seem quaint or charming. It was, however, perfect for the multitude of young people in swimsuits and shorts that seemed to populate the entire area.

It's a casual beach town with a few shops downtown. There are some good restaurants. You have to be cautious at times especially during summer at night lots of drunks out. Normally it's just nice and chill. Love the farmers market at night with performers. The reason I didn't rank it a 5 is that it needs to be cleaner.

Lined with restaurants, it's ok but not extraordinary. The extensive stretch of sand and water at Huntington Beach is what makes this area wonderful.

Spent one afternoon just checking the street out and then returned for an evening out for dinner. Tons of people out as it was a Friday night. Roaming musicians will serenade you...young people out promoting their personal CD's etc. so very fun atmosphere.

There is a bit of everything at this small street fair; but the best is the free music on several corners of every block - some very good musicians and singers!!
