Man playing a violin at the Huntington Beach Pier in Orange County

In another warm day, a man plays a violin as the crashing sounds of the waves echo behind him in Huntington Beach. I’ve seen all types of musicians at the pier, from a banjo player to a one-man band with an alien. No matter what day of the week it is, there’s always something new. That’s probably why I like spending so much time here.

The HB Pier is always a nice walk, much nicer than the other big pier in LA. Perhaps it’s because HB feels more like a beach town. Volleyball, surfing, music, it can all be found here just steps away from the pier.

I like going during the week, early morning or sunsets are the best. For entertainment or a leisurely walk on the pier, mid-day is just fine. Take your time, look at the surfers, seagulls or the crazy stuff people do on the beach. You won’t be disappointed.

There are tons of events throughout the year, so it really doesn’t matter when you visit. For surfers though, it’s the US Open of Surfing, and that’s a big one. The crowds are huge.
