Naomi Loomis spent some time with her kids in the sand while vacationing at Huntington Beach.

In terms of population, it is the largest beach city in Orange County. As a registered Surf City USA trademark, the city encourages an active outdoor lifestyle, ranging from surfing, biking, swimming, volleyball, and more.

Huntington Beach hosts a number of popular events throughout the year, including:

  • Bolsa Chica & Huntington State Beach Lifeguards Biathlon: This swim/run begins at Santa Ana River Jetties and ends at Bolsa Chica Beach.

  • Cruise of Lights Boat Tour: A parade of lighted boat circuits around Huntington Harbour to view decorated winter homes.

  • Surf City USA Marathon: 20,000 runners from all over the world run along the beautiful California beaches.

  • Kite Festival: The festival is one of the premiere kite flying events across the country, where thousands gather for friendly competition.

  • Surf City Nights: Every week throughout the whole year, the event hosts a farmers market, art walk, food, and other entertainment.

Naomi Loomis and her family even tried their hand at surfing, as the beach provides top quality waves.

The world surfing championships are held annually at Huntington Beach, which even earned the nickname “Surf City.” The Loomises also took a walk along the Huntington Beach Pier, a prominent landmark among the city’s beach culture.

While in Huntington Beach, Naomi Loomis and her family also visited the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, a wildlife sanctuary spanning 300 acres. California wetlands once provided refuge for more than 60 million birds, but because of habitat destruction, the number has declined to 2 million. So far, the effort to restore California wetlands has been successful, housing migratory birds such as Light-footed Clapper Rails, Great Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets, Black-Neck Stilts, and much more. Naomi Loomis and her family enjoyed a relaxing walk around the 1.5 mile trail, where they were able to view the diverse wildlife.
