Top 5 Reasons to Spend Your Senior Years in Huntington Beach

(guest blog entry provided by www.SeniorHomes.com)
At first glance, Surf City USA may seem like the last place seniors would want to spend their aging years. On the contrary, Huntington Beach offers a range of activities that appeal to a broad range of age groups – from Huntington Beach assisted living residents to college students. If you're considering a move to Surf City USA, consider this list of the top five reasons to spend your elder years in Huntington Beach.

1. The beach, of course. You'll relish the ability to put your toes in the sand every day. Huntington Beach's 8.5 miles of coastline provides plenty of opportunities for beach-going and people watching.
2. Fabulous dining. Foodies can't get enough of Huntington Beach's wide selection of local cuisine. Choose from Coach's Mediterranean Grill, Black Bull Chop House, Bodhi Tree Café, and more right in the heart of downtown Huntington Beach. On the outskirts of town, Kona, The Bee Hive, and Fitzgerald's Pub are among dozens of fine dining options.
3. Nature. If the beach isn't enough for you, take a walk in the Bolsa Chica Wetlands or Huntington Central Park. Within Central Park, Shipley Nature Center offers 18 acres of wildlife and free programs on Thursday evenings during July and August.
4. Arts. Browse art exhibits at the Huntington Beach Arts Center, or take in a live jazz or blues concert. If jazz and blues aren't your thing, the Pier offers plenty of live music events of various genres throughout the summer.
5. A caring community. Huntington Beach isn't all fun and games. The community boasts excellent medical care, residents that are active in supporting worthy causes (such as the American Cancer Society), and a strong safety record.
Huntington Beach is sun and sand, paired with plentiful opportunities for wholesome, young-at-heart fun. Whether you prefer to relax on the beach and watch the ocean or hit the town, Surf City USA is a great location to live an active lifestyle well into retirement.
