PALM TREE PERSUASION
While there's more to Huntington Beach than its pretty pictures, the addition in recent years of stately palms along Pacific Coast Highway have done much to replace the images of oil derricks silhouetted by the setting sun with swaying palms.
Huntington Beach's nearly nine miles of beach is lined with palm trees a good port of the distance. The effect provides a tropical look and feel appreciated by those who pass by taking photos, walking or simply driving on Pacific Coast Highway. And if you're fortunate to live in one of the stately homes lining this coastal route, the palms offer you a perfect view to go with your sunset over the Pacific.
