Huntington Beach, also know as "Surf City USA", has always been a destination for world famous surfing with its 9 miles of sandy beach. Historically, much of the area was owned by Chevron Corp. once oil reserves were discovered. However, although a few oil derricks remain, the high cost of land has replaced them with new development. While the Pier and downtown Main street have always attracted tourists, now it's also home to several major resorts - Marriott, Hyatt and Hilton - which all border Pacific Coast Highway. There's also the recently completed "Pacific City", a beach-themed shopping and dining destination where you can watch surfers and the sunset while you dine. To the north is Huntington Harbor, where residences replace the usual backyard with a boat dock. Inland areas offer traditional homes and master-planned communities like Seacliff on the Greens, as well as cottages and condos.
