Located just south of Long Beach and north of Huntington Beach, Seal Beach is a quaint seaside community of charming shops, historic homes and great surf.
At just 13.2 square miles, it’s one of the smallest beachfront communities in Southern California.
Start your visit at Main Street and Ocean Avenue, which is the center of action in Seal Beach. Set up a spot on the sand, take your kids to the play park or go surfing. The beach’s annual Kite Festival takes place in September.
Seal Beach is home to the second longest wooden pier in California. Built in 1906, Seal Beach Pier stretches 1,835 feet. Say hello to Slick the Seal, then stroll to the end of the pier for sweeping views of Long Beach, the Queen Mary and the Seal Beach shoreline. That big white hangar you see in the distance was once home to Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose. Be sure to bring a jacket, as it can get cold out on the pier — even on a sunny day.
After enjoying the morning on the beach, take a break for lunch with a stroll along historic Main Street, which is dotted with cute boutiques and some of the best restaurants in Seal Beach. Walt’s Wharf is a great place for fresh seafood and clam chowder, and The Hangout is popular for brunch. For dinner, don’t miss Mahe restaurant, located in the historic Airport Club building on PCH. The food is incredible!
Electric Avenue, which intersects Main Street, once serviced the 40-mile Pacific Electric Railway line from Los Angeles to Balboa Peninsula. The Seal Beach Red Car Museum is housed in a Pacific Electric Tower Car dating back to 1925. Open from noon to 3 on the second and fourth Saturday of the month, the museum offers a glimpse at historic photos, signs and memorabilia from the Red Car line.
The Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station is home to the West Coast’s World War II Submarine Memorial. It’s located on Seal Beach Boulevard and is open to the public.
If you’re looking to avoid the crowds and enjoy a day on the beach, Seal Beach is a great destination. Have fun!!! SUBSCRIBE! http://tinyurl.com/p2fveuj
