Whether you prefer to call it “The Soul of SoCal” or “Surf City, USA” Huntington Beach, California is one of the most well-known seaside cities in Orange County, California. Colloquially referred to as, “HB”, by SoCal locals, Huntington Beach is a total hotspot for beach culture, surfing, sand games, water sports, and, with the arrival of Dog Beach, it’s the perfect place to spend the day with your four-legged furry friend.
Sitting above a large natural fault structure containing oil, Huntington Beach has long been the site of offshore oil extraction facilities. However, as the oil in the area has been mostly depleted, extraction now continues at a much slower rate and there are only two offshore oil extraction facilities remaining. With that, the City of Huntington Beach is prepared for the days when oil drilling will cease and tourism will become the primary revenue source for local residents.
Marketing efforts to draw tourism to the area is primarily the reason that the City of Huntington Beach adopted the name Surf City, USA in 1991. Although there has been much debate since then over which of the four beach cities throughout the United States who claim the name is actually the true Surf City, USA. Huntington Beach is holding firm and winning, having retained a trademark for the name more than fifteen years ago when the city decided to launch a marketing campaign that would pair SoCal’s beach culture and active outdoor lifestyle with a family of product licensees that would produce a revenue stream, while simultaneously promoting the brand and city. What an awesome idea and way to support the residents in your community!
