It is known as an ideal place for beaches, warm climates, and surfing with a total length of 8.5 miles (14 km). The surf has a natural, characteristic effect caused by the diffraction of the end of the ocean wave due to the presence of Santa Catarina off the coast, and waves influenced by distant hurricanes are also pouring in.
There used to be Tonguva Indians in a part of Huntington Beach. In 1784, Manuel Nieto, a Spanish military man, was granted permission to use 300,000 acres (120 km2) of land as a reward for his military service, Rancho Ross Nietus, and in order to encourage the development of Alta California, which was the first time European got permission to do so. The west side of Nietto's property was reduced in 1790 due to a dispute with the Sanga Briel Missionary Office, but it had a large area extending from the hills of Wittier, Fullerton and Blair to the south Pacific Ocean in the north and from today's Los Angeles River in the west to the Santa Ana River in the east.
The main main avenue of Huntington Beach was Beach Boulevard, which was initially a path through which cattle in the ranches, the main industry, passed. The Huntington Beach was called by many names because there was a vast authorization site by Spain. It was sometimes called Shell Beach, it was also called the town of Smelzer, and it was sometimes called Gospel Swamp because a missionary rally was held in the wetlands where Golden West College of Community College was located. Later, it was called Fairview, and since it developed as a tourist destination, it was also called Pacific City. To ensure access to the Red Car Line, which runs horizontally and vertically through Los Angeles and terminates at Long Beach, the Pacific City transferred enormous power to Henry Huntington, the railroad magnate, and as a result, the name of the sponsor company was included in the city name. This was aimed at the publicity that was common in the history of southern California.
Huntington Beach was put into a city system on February 17, 1909 with Ed Manning as the first mayor. The early developer was the Huntington Beach Company (formerly the West Coast Land and Water Company), a real estate developer owned by Henry Huntington. The Huntington Beach Company is still a major landowner in the city and owns most of the mining rights there.
An interesting incident occurred in the reclaimed land in this area. I transferred the land in the Huntington Beach area, which was cheap by an encyclopedia company, for a total of $126. This lucky purchaser obtained more than a few items to dig up when oil was found in the area, and after that, the huge development of oil resources continued. Many of the old oil wells have already run to the bottom, and the land prices for residential houses have soared, and the oil drilling system has disappeared, but oil pumps are still seen scattered throughout the city.
Huntington Beach was a major agricultural area with celery and sugar daikon in its early history. Holly Sugar Company became a major employer with a large sugar refinery in the city, and later it was converted into a petroleum refinery.
Huntington Beach High School, the first high school to be built in 1906. The sports team of the high school named Euler's name after its original natural resources.
Medurak Airport was a small general-purpose airport that existed in Huntington Beach from the 1950s to 1989.
According to the National Census Bureau, the total area of the city is 31.5 square miles (81.7 km2), of which the land area is 26.4 square miles (69.3 km2), the water area is 5.2 square miles (13.4 km 2) and the water area is 16.38%.
Huntington Beach belongs to the Mediterranean Climate (Climate Division Csb in Keppen). The climate is mostly dry and cool, but there is sometimes excessive moisture at night. A strong wind with a wind speed of 15 miles per hour (24 km/h) often blows in the morning and evening. The sea water temperature of the Pacific Ocean is 55°F (13°C) to 65°F (18°C) on average. The temperature in the summer season rarely exceeds 85 degrees F (29 degrees C), and even in the clear night, the temperature in the winter season rarely falls below 40 degrees F (4 degrees C). The annual precipitation is 14 inches (356 mm), most of which fall during the winter season. Frost is the coldest day in winter and rare. Throughout the year, the cool air of the Pacific Ocean is influenced by the ocean air layer, which is made by meeting warm air on the continent. For this reason, in May and June in particular, there is a lot of cloud and fog is easily generated.

symbiosis with nature
Since any kind of structure to be constructed on the beach in Huntington Beach cannot be admitted without a referendum, the U.S. government is choosing to maintain a natural connection with the ocean rather than damage the landscape with housing and commercial development.
Wide swamps extend between central and port and are protected by the Borsa Chica Wildlife Reserve. The cost of $110 million to recover the wetlands was completed in 2006. This sanctuary is popular among bird watchers and photographers.
The southern, Talbert, Brookhurst, and Magnolia marshes are located across the streets of Huntington State Beach, and their restoration work was completed in 2010.
The northern and southern seashore (Borsa Chika State Beach and Huntington State Beach, respectively) are designated as state parks. The central beach (Huntington City Beach is the only one to manage the city. The camp and RVs are allowed here and are popular camps for the Independence Day and the surfing championships on July 4. A reservation is necessary a few months in advance. Borsa-Chika State Beach is a sandy beach on the Borsa Bay and the Borsa-Chika State Reserve.
Orange County operates Sunset Marina Park, adjacent to Huntington, a part of Anaheim Bay. It is suitable for light boats and has mooring, launching, basic functions, picnic and several restaurants. This park is in Seal Beach City, but is accessible only from Huntington Beach. In the Sunset Huntington area, a patrol of the Orange County Security Department's Port Patrol patrol patrol patrol patrol patrol operates.
The U.S. Navy may regulate the port entrance of Anaheim Bay. This is to load goods in the Seal Beach Naval Arsenal, located north of the main waterway.

Huntington Beach lies on a natural fault that houses oil. The oil industry has mined most of its oil, but its output remains low, leaving no small amount of gold to the locals. Two oil-mining facilities remain off the coast, but the production of these facilities will be stopped before long, and the tourism industry will be replaced with the major income resources of the city.
Huntington Beach City is considering a plan to shut down cars from the Pacific Coast Highway into the main street from retail and restaurant zones and make them a pedestrian paradise. The shopping center also has a Belatella built on the site of the old Huntington Center and an Old World Village featuring Germany.
Huntington Beach has an offshore oil terminal for the tanker that supports the Alaska Pipeline. The terminal's pipe leads to the Santa Fe Springs oil refinery. There is also the Gotard Talbert Terminal for Orange County, which is connected by a pipe to the Chevron El Segundo oil refinery.
On the inland side of the Pacific Coast Highway (National Route 1), you can see the seashore, and several hotels have been built in the southeast just south-east of the pier.
The Huntington Beach has the former McDonnell Douglas and the current Boeing's main facility. Many of the Boeing's facilities were originally built for the Apollo program and are well known for producing the S-IVB, the top of the Saturn IB and Saturn V rockets. The letters 'Apollo-only control line' still remain on the telephone pole near Boeing.
Huntington Beach has a management headquarters of Seironch, a commercial launching company with Boeing's largest stockholder.
In the northwest corner of the city, there is a small industrial park near the border with Westminster and Seal Beach.
Surf City USA Registered Trademark
Huntington Beach has been a registered trademark of Surf City Huntington Beach since 15 years ago, but in November 2004, the Huntington Beach Meeting Tourist Office applied for four registered trademarks of "Surf City USA." The concept is to sell the city by creating a real brand based on Southern California seaside culture and active outdoor lifestyle, and at the same time, to create a group of licensed products in the form of a franchise chain that produces income that can contribute to the promotion of the brand and the city. On May 12, 2006, three registered trademarks were registered by the ruling of the United States Patent and Trademark Office. After this, nine registered trademarks are registered, and ten other registered trademarks are under examination. One of the first products developed by the Conference Tourism Board to promote the brand was the Surf City USA Beach Cruiser, made by Felt Bicycles in 2006. The product was sold out every year to promote the brand and created demand for the second rental bicycle model. In 2009, it was decided to market for the world's resort. The Conference Bureau has sent out many licensed products to soft drinks, clothing and glass containers of the Surf City USA brand. As of April 2008, there are licenses with more than 20 companies and more than 50 products are being prepared to be delivered to the market in the next 18 months. Four of the registered trademarks possessed by the Board of Tourism are the basic registrations, and the remaining ten are expected to follow. Currently, several overseas countries are considering registering their registered trademarks, and we hope to see the expansion of its overseas branded goods market within a few years.
The dispute between Huntington Beach and Santa Cruz over the registered trademark gained a nationwide publicity effect in 2007. At this time, a law firm representing Huntington Beach sent a letter to Santa Cruz's T-shirt manufacturer asking for the suspension of the use of the brand. The issue was settled in January 2008 and the Huntington Beach Meeting Tourist Office was able to maintain its registered trademark.
There are active art centers, beautiful shopping districts and the International Surfing Museum in the central town of Huntington Beach. There was the Golden Bear, which used to be a music hall in a famous restaurant. From the late 1960s to the 1970s, many famous bands and artists performed. The Huntington Beach pier extends from Main Street to the Pacific. At the tip is a ruby diner.
One block north of this pier was the Surf Theater. In the 1960's and 1970's, he won fame by showing independent surfing movies such as The Endless Summer and Five Summer Stories. The theater was owned and operated by Hugh Larry Thomas from 1961 to 1989 when it was dismantled. The new building of the theater is now closed, but the International Surfing Museum has a permanent display of the old fashioned chairs and the surfing movies that were once shown on it, so it is still remembered.
art and culture
Many of the events held at Huntington Beach are centered around the summer beach. U.S. The Open of Surfing and Beach Games are held on the south side of the pier. One of the beach volleyball tours organized by the professional volleyball association is held at Huntington Beach. Biathlon (swimming and running), sponsored by the Borsa Chika Huntington State Beach Rescue Team, begins before dawn in July. The race starts from the Santa Ana River pier and Warner Avenue on the Borsa Chica State Beach reaches its goal. Daycamp of the Huntington Beach Junior Rescue Team teaches children around puberty about swimming, long distance running and emergency medical knowledge.
Apart from the events held on the beach, the July 4 Independence Day parade has been held since 1904. The Sokar (Southern California) Independent Film Festival is held every September.
Every winter, a boat tour of Densho-bune boats is held around Huntington Harbor. This is a parade of boats with colorful lights, and there are also tours to view decorated houses on the boat. The annual kite festival is held in late February just north of the pier.
At Huntington Beach, automobile shows, including beach cruise meet and concourse deregans, are held. Beach Cruiser Meet will be held in March, with more than 250 classic cars lined up in parking lots on main streets and bridges. The Concourse Elegance will be held in Central Park in June and the proceeds will be used for public libraries.
Surf City Knights are held throughout the year. This is an event that is held every Tuesday night to boost the local community, which directs the farm products' direct sales branches, characteristic performances, meals, children's vehicles and festive mood. Surf City Knights is co-hosted by the Huntington Beach Central Town Business Improvement Committee and Huntington Beach City. It's done using three main street blocks from the Pacific Coast Highway to Orange Avenue.
At Huntington Beach every summer, the world surfing championships are held. It is often called "Surf City" because of this event and the history and culture of surfing. It is often called "the world's surfing capital," because it is the consistent quality of the waves, not the height of the waves. In 1955, Gordon Duane opened the first surf shop in the town, Goldy's Surfboards.
waves and beaches
Besides the sponsored surfing event, Huntington Beach has the best surfing experience in California and the United States. There are four beaches in the northwest, west, southwest and south. The Northwest Sea Beach is the Borsa-Chika State Beach and is 3.3 miles long (5.3 km). Saikaihama is called "the Cliffs" or "Dog Beach". The Nansei Kaihama Beach is thought to be all of the areas north of the pier, and is operated by Huntington Beach City. The Nankai-hama Beach is located south of the pier, centered on the Huntington State Beach and is 2.2 miles long (3.5 km). It is almost due south.
Borsa Chica State Beach is operated by California, Park Recreation Bureau and Borsa Chika State Beach Rescue Team. This beach is very narrow and the sand is very rough. Borsa Chika has good waves from northwest to west in winter. During the summer, waves from the south to the southwest make a very steep angle. Because of the terrain at the bottom of the sea, the waves of Borsa Chika slow down and break into soft pieces. Long boards are suitable here.
"The Cliffs" and "Dog Beach" are popular surfing spots. The beach is very narrow, and at high tide it hides below the surface. This winter wave is better than Borsa Chika. The summer waves are from the south to the southwest, and they are often broken to poverty. Long boards are good, but short boards are good. We can observe dolphins in this area.
The beach in the north-south direction of Huntington Beach pier is a fine sandy sandbank that changes its shape throughout the year. The southern part is a popular summer surfing spot, but the northern part is a winter spot. Near the pier, it depends on the shape of the waves and the sand. The short board is suitable here.
The South Sea Beach, also called the Huntington State Beach, is all a seashore where the waves from the south rush. It is operated by the California, Park Recreation Agency and the Huntington State Beach Rescue Team. This beach is very wide and rich in sand. From spring to autumn, the sandbars move dramatically, creating the best surfing conditions in combination with the waves from the south, west and southwest. The Santa Ana River pier is located at the southern end of the beach, so large sandy beaches spread widely throughout the area, and the waves collapse extremely quickly to create a hollow. The best season on the beach is summer and autumn. The short board is suitable.
Kite surfing is also popular, and you can often see it in the northwest of the pier.
The Surf City USA Marathon and the Half Marathon are held every February's first Sunday.
Parks and recreation
On the east and west of the city are Gotado-dori Street and Edwards-dori Street, and on the north and south are very large central parks surrounded by Slater Avenue and Ellis Avenue. The park is a dry-resistant vegetation, inhabited by wildlife. The deep forest surrounding the park is filled with Australian trees, especially eucalyptus who absorbs a lot of water.
The Huntington Beach Public Library is located in Central Park and is a well known building designed by Richard Noitra and Dion Noitra. There are about 500,000 books, theaters, souvenir shops and fountains. The library was established as the Carnegie Library in 1914 and has always been supported by the city and local activists and has established branches in Bunning, Oak View, Main Street and Graham. The collection contains important local history materials, and there are special collections of genealogical documents. It is independent of the state and county library system.
At Central Park, there is a Huntington Central Park Riding Center, which has top-class facilities such as lending horses to the private sector and allowing people to ride on horseback along the road in the park with a trainer. There is a 'mud playground' for children. It is the second oldest disk golf course in the world, and has two other small places to eat, an adult sports facility and the Shipley Nature Center.
Borsa Chica wetlands are shrinking rapidly for development. There are many sidewalks and scenic roads inside. Recently, it has been improved to come into contact with the ocean again in order to get the old person back out of touch.
According to Huntington Beach's recent comprehensive annual financial report, the city's revenue was $295.6 million, spending was $287.7 million, total assets: $1.0466 billion, total liabilities of $228 million, cash and investment of $87.1 million.
The California State Council is part of the 35th and 67th constituencies in the Senate. The U.S. House of Representatives is part of California's 46th constituency (currently Republican Dana Laurabucker) and the Cook Ballot Index is +6. As of 2010, all Republican members were in office.
There are 127,660 registered voters as of June 1, 2010. 45.8% are Republican supporters, 28.5% are Democratic supporters, 20.7 is unanswered and the rest are third party supporters. Like most of Orange County, there are many Republican supporters.
There is Golden West College in the city, where there is a two-year semi-bachelor course and a four-year college course.
The Huntington Beach Integrated High School School District has jurisdiction over public secondary education in Huntington Beach, and there are four high schools in the city including Eddison High School, and one high school in each of Fountain View and Westminster City.
The school district also has a ballet vista high school for alternative schools, a course for independent schools and a high school.
Huntington Beach High School, a flagship of the school district, celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2006.
There are two elementary school education districts in the city, each of which has nine and fifteen elementary schools. Some are under the jurisdiction of the Fountain Valley School District.
There are also Pegasus schools that have been recognized nationwide as Blue Ribbon Schools.

The Huntington Beach Coast Guard and its seasonal rescue team are recognized as one of the best in the world with high safety records. He has a community emergency activities training program that trains citizens who become disaster activists recognized by the United States Federal Emergency Management Agency as part of a program run by the Department of Emergency Activities at the Fire Department.
Emergency activities are also carried out on the national beach. The Sheriff's Department and the rescue team are also on the Borsa Chica State Beach and Huntington State Beach. The activities include lifesaving, boat rescue, fast aid and law enforcement. All activities are under the jurisdiction of the California State Park Recreation Agency.
In 1926, the Santa Ana River Dam collapsed and all the delta areas of the river were flooded. The south of the delta and the ocean side is now the urban area of Huntington Beach. Although the dam is still alive today, it is expected that the amount of water stored is reduced due to the accumulation of sludge, so the flood-suppressing effect is reduced. While banks protect areas where flood waters are expected, flood insurance in the delta is high. Serious discussions have been held to eliminate the need for flood insurance, and in some areas this special clause has disappeared and it is believed that the threat will not be imminent.
Since Huntington Beach is a coastal city, there is a risk of tsunami, storm surges, pollution spills, tornadoes and tornadoes on water. The pier has flowed out three times. There is no danger of a hurricane because the ocean current is cold off the coast. The pier, which was rebuilt in the 1990s, was designed to withstand violent storms and earthquakes.
Most of the delta-area zones are liquefaction zones above active faults. Most of the faults are named streets in the city.
Many citizens live within the area where they can see oil drilling and hear it. The cost of cleaning has increased due to the eruption of oil. Most of the developing areas are polluted with heavy metals in water separated from oil.
Since the amount of mercury in this region is very high, metal mercury is regularly taken out of the oil pipeline and equipment. When oil prices rise, oil refining activity increases. Several oil fields have been approved for development. Polluted areas have been redeveloped as parks. The area is designated as a Super Fund site for areas that are too polluted to be a park. This site is near Eddison High School, the intersection of Magnolia and Hamilton.
According to the Huntington Beach Sister City Association, it connects the following cities with sister cities:
- Japan, Aichi Prefecture and Anjo City
- New Zealand, Waitake
The above two cities have implemented youth exchange programs, and they have sent four teenagers to each other for about two weeks to experience different cultures.
