About Seal Beach
Unlike in nearby Orange County cities like Huntington Beach and Newport Beach, the Pacific Coast Highway doesn't hug the coastline in Seal Beach. Instead, it passes through the center of town, further inland. This factor -- combined with the insulating effects of the wildlife refuge to the south and the Alamitos Bay Marina to the north -- protects Seal Beach from becoming overcrowded. Many commuters and travelers pass by without even realizing that the town exists.
West of the highway, Main Street runs through the Old Town neighborhood, eventually reaching the beach. This central business district is Seal Beach’s beating heart, and picturesque Main Street is lined with an impressive collection of unique shops and restaurants.
Locals can choose from an eclectic collection of dining options, ranging from casual eateries to more upscale bistros, and there are several cozy bars and cafes. As well as galleries and funky boutiques, Main Street is also home to services like hardware stores and banks.
Seal Beach is a tight-knit community, and locals love to come together and celebrate their city. Seal Beach is home to numerous events and festivals throughout the year, including a classic car show in April, and a summer concert series that runs in July and August, a September kite festival, and winter holiday events in November and December.
The beach here is wide and sandy, offering plenty of room to relax and enjoy the sun and surf. Although the beach is a popular spot, it seldom feels crowded, and locals take full advantage of the wonderful Southern California weather to enjoy surfing, kitesurfing, and windsurfing.
Originally built in the early 1900s, Seal Beach Pier is the second-longest wooden pier in California. The pier is a favorite place to take a relaxing break while enjoying warm ocean breezes and watching local fishermen reel in their catch. It's free to fish here, and it isn't unusual to haul in perch, halibut, and small sharks. At the pier's entrance, there's an awesome restaurant, as well as a popular playground for the kiddos.
Seal Beach is dotted with parks and green spaces, such as Electric Avenue Median Park. This lovely stretch of greenway bisects Old Town and offers a pleasant walking trail. Seal Beach is also home to important protected areas, such as Los Cerritos Wetlands and the remarkable Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, which encompasses 965 acres of protected marshland.
