Host City

Huntington Beach is a beautiful coastal city, reflecting the Southern California laid-back lifestyle, casual and cool, where anything is possible.  With ten miles of uninterrupted beach, clean wide sands, safe swimming, and perfect waves, the city has earned the nickname of Surf City USA.  Huntington Beach was picked as the "best beach in the U.S." by Time Magazine.

Huntington Beach could also be called the bonfire ring capital of the world, with over 500 beach fire rings where visitors can toast marshmallows while watching the sun set over the ocean.

The city is centrally located in Orange County, between Los Angeles and San Diego, with convenient access to many local attractions.
