Huntington Beach, (aka Surf City, USA) is located at the intersection of Beach Boulevard and the Pacific Coast Highway, 35 miles south of Los Angeles, and is known for its almost 10 mile stretch of pristine beach, Huntington Beach Pier, world-class surfing, miles of biking and jogging trails, endless sunshine and laid-back beach culture.
Surf City is also extremely dog friendly, boasting one of the largest dog beaches in the country.
Aptly named, Dog Beach is located on the main city beach on Pacific Coast Highway between Golden West Street and Seapoint Street. Dog Beach is a free, public beach open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Reading the Menu at Park Bench Cafe
When you're ready to shake the sand from your shoes, stroll Main Street for the quaint village atmosphere, with coffee houses, restaurants, and beach boutiques.
To refuel, visit Park Bench Cafe in Central Park where you and your pooch can enjoy outdoor dining together.
Brodie can even order from his very own Canine Cuisine menu, featuring the Hot Diggity Dog and the Bow Wow Wow.
When you’re ready to rest your paws, book a room at the hip, luxurious Shorebreak Hotel, a Kimpton Hotels property.
Shorebreak Hotel is located where the Pacific Coast Highway meets the Huntington Beach Pier about a mile away from Dog Beach.
When registering, be sure to request the Pamper Your Pooch Package; which includes a bone dog toy, waste bags, pet bowls, squeaker tennis balls, and a $25 credit for people or pooches to use in the Zimzala Restaurant located on the premises.
