Photos and Information  

California Adventure's Orange ride reflects on the water at night

Disneyland is about 25 minutes by car from Huntington Beach. There are two theme parks, Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure, plus the free admission entertainment area, Downtown Disney which features live jazz bands, ESPN Zone, Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen, a Lego store, books and shops with Disney gift items.

People from around the globe travel to Anaheim, California to visit Disneyland Resort. They come for the attractions but usually want to stay at the beach when visiting.  There are several beaches guests prefer. One special beach is  Huntington Beach. The other popular beaches close to Disneyland include Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. All the beaches are fantastic and each city offers an experience different from the next.  Newport Beach has a beautiful harbor that some consider the heart of their beach experience. They also have two piers, a ferry boat ride, boats to Catalina Island, fishing day trips and extreme surfing at The Wedge. Laguna Beach features art galleries galore, including Wyland's gallery (the famous whale and ocean muralist/artist). The beaches are spread throughout neighborhoods in Laguna Beach and are lovely. Laguna offers some great dining choices and diverse shops. Scuba divers can dive off the Laguna coast.  Huntington Beach features sand, surf and a huge pier that stretches into the ocean approximately 1/3 mile. Huntington Beach features a downtown shopping and dining area that stretches approximately 5 blocks with shops that cater to mostly a young audience but outdoor dining for all age groups.


What is our favorite beach' We recommend you visit all three. But don't stop there. Also drive north to Seal Beach with its wonderful, old fashioned shopping area. It is the only beach that does not charge parking fees in the downtown area! Then head north to Long Beach's Belmont Shore and new The Pike with The Aquarium of the Pacific. So much to see and do in a span of 40 miles but if you don't stay at one place too long, you can see them all in a single day.
