I lived in Dana Point for the four months I worked at Swell.com. It was nice, but Huntington/Newport has better, more consistent surf. It's nice to be close to Trestles, but man, that place is packed, and Huntington (I think) is a better wave than Salt Creek.

At the end of the day it is Orange County. "The OC" is a quasi-epithet for a reason.

Orange County is a good place, but it has issues like everywhere. It's not like the SF Bay Area is peaches and cream all of the time. You should enjoy living down here.

OC is not the OC of yesteryear. It's definitely more gentrified and kooks are so common place, they aren't really kooks anymore.

Still, as part of the LA megopolis, it's not a bad choice to pick coastal HB north of the pier area, surf-wise. You could do a lot worse. Traffic will be a culture shock on all but the wee hours of the AM. Good luck.

I live in the tract immediately adjoining and behind Massimos Pizza. They've had a long-successful run with their family-owned business over the decades. Still going strong. Order your food at the counter, sit in the red leatherette booths, grab your beers/other beverages from the refrigerated case, settle up at the end. Cash only. Take out sandwiches are bomb.

The traffic driving around that area would drive me nuts.

I bought into the Southeast Huntington Beach neighborhood in 1989, which I believe was post-Bobby. I will say that there is nothing else anywhere in California like the immediate neighborhood is now...1960s and 1970s tract homes on decent-sized lots with pools and lots of parking and quiet nights and great public schools nearby: walkable to the sand and consistent surf: the best weather in Orange County, hence the country; easily commutable to all the commercial working centers in OC; tons of great food places nearby.

Salt Creek is a myth... The World's most over hyped closeout. The crowds these days are horrible. Grumpy Old Guys, Adult learners, entitled groms with mom's on the video cam and speed dial to cops, occasional A level pros but mostly B, C and D level pros trying to relive careers they never had and don't forget the SUP's and Foilers.



Stay North of CDM.
