A trip to Huntington Beach isn’t complete without a walk along the iconic Huntington Beach Pier. The pier was first built in 1904 but was damaged by several storms throughout the century, and thus rebuilt on several occasions using the same original design. You will find several little shops, restaurants, and cafés along the 1,850-foot-long pier. It’s a fantastic place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or the evening sunset with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.2. Spend an afternoon at Huntington City Beach
