Welcome to the quintessential California beach town. Walk on water down a long wooden pier, and watch daredevil surfers ride the waves right through the wooden pylons. Along wide stretches of white sand, free spirits mix with nine-to-fivers boogie-boarding on lunch breaks. Bide your time in line at Hodad's for burgers worthy of local surf champions.
