Family, Travel

Featured in Redfin blog article on Huntington Beach, CA

I’ve been visiting my parents in Huntington Beach, California over 25 years. My dad moved from Northern to Southern California for work. They’ve since stayed in their retirement.

Lori and I just returned on the weekend from visiting family there. We’ve had to go more often these past few years to support our parents as they age. These trips crossed off one place I wanted to visit once the pandemic eased.

Every time I visit I go down to the beach and pier. This last time the tide was the lowest that I’ve ever seen it:

Redfin blog reached out to me to see if I’d share a tip about visiting Huntington Beach. Check out the recent Redfin article I was featured in: 

Call it by the nickname “Surf City USA,” Huntington Beach has become a destination for many people moving to Southern California. With great museums and plenty of sunny and beachside outdoor activities, it’s no wonder Huntington Beach is also home to about 198,700 people. 

As more people move to Huntington Beach, it’s important to keep in mind that the median home sale price is $1,180,000 and the average sale price per square foot is $658. Or if you’re a renter, the average rent price for a 2-bedroom apartment in Huntington Beach is $2,910.

If those prices are out of your budget, don’t worry. We’ve rounded up a list of the 8 best affordable Huntington Beach suburbs to consider living in – and they’re all under a 35-minute drive from the city. You’ll be close enough to explore Huntington Beach’s best activities without paying the price of living there.

We’ll need to go back more frequently this year to especially care for Lori’s dad who lives about 45 minutes away. It’s great to also see my parents each time and we’re grateful they let us stay with them.

With views like these at the beach and pier it won’t be hard to visit!
