Hiking & Wildlife Watching in Huntington Beach State Park
Another of my favorite outdoor spots, Huntington Beach State Park is a nature lover’s paradise. Home to more than 300 species of birds, this is a prime spot for bird watching. You can also spot alligators in the park’s freshwater lake and fish off the fishing pier. If you feel like staying for a while, camping sites are available and you can stock up on any needed supplies at the park shop. Huntington Beach State Park is also the perfect place to hike or just bring a picnic to one of the picnic shelters and enjoy the peace.
