I originally posted in the long beach forum but have decided to take my vacation to Huntington beach instead :)
Anyway, I'll be going from the 20th of October - 25th and staying in a hostel I think. Im mainly going to relax, get my head clear and do some writing (which i do a lot), but I wanna get as much in as possible so are there any things I HAVE to do when in HB?
You HAVE to spend time on the beach, go on the pier, and walk through the downtown area (including the shops). Lots of fun places to eat & drink, and the beach is beautiful and big. Try renting a bike and riding along the coast in either direction. It's even a short ride south to Newport Beach. If you have a car, you should try to make it to Laguna Beach (further south past Newport Beach) - it's got a European feeling to it and is gorgeous.
Have fun! The weather should still be nice, sunny and not too chilly.
