Surf City Kids Vacations - California Surf City

Surf City Kids Vacations are the cat's pajamas. Children love the beach and you'll find 20 billion-million grains of sand in the huge California beach that makes up Surf City. 

From surfing to skateboarding in Surf City, USA's favorite kid's place to shop for cool clothes is the ideal spot to buy back-to-school wardrobes. Moms and dads can treat their kids to Main Street USA shopping, surf items, surf lessons and even a birthday vacation party in this beach city near Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm. 

But don't stop there. Take your kid on a vacation trip that includes a visit to the Block with its huge Van's Skate Park. While Surf City features two routine skateboard training grounds, Van's is the king park.

Are you looking for some things to do with your kids in Surf City?

If you want the kiddies to wear off energy, rent them some skates or a bicycle (built for two). Then take them to get some ice cream at Foster's Freeze, Cold Stone, Baskin Robbins or Black Pearl Brewery where gelatos are served.

Got fast food? You betcha! Burger King, McDonalds, Taco Bell, IHOP, KFC, Pizza Hut, Dominos, Wendy's, In N Out Burger, Denny's and a host of fast food restaurants with play stations, play equipment, food boxes with prizes and affordable kids meals will make the American boy or girl feel right at home.

When kids travel on these kid vacations they sometimes get sick and need meds. It's not a problem in Surf City, mom & dad. At least 5 of the hotels have refrigerators to keep your antibiotics chilled and there are medical emergency clinics to solve your kid's ills, from falls and scrapes to sinus infections that won't go away.

Gotta go? Kids only give you one minute warning when it's time to find a bathroom. Surf City has bathrooms at the beach and they usually are available without a wait. Several handicap bathrooms allow room for moms and dads to help their tots.

Fun kids things beside the beach include swings at local parks. The closest to the beach is at Lake Park, about 7 blocks away on Main Street. Huntington Beach doesn't have any swings on its beaches.

Next door to Surf City is a bowling alley or family fun miniature golf in Fountain Valley, Chuck E. Cheese in Huntington Beach, roller skating and ice skating in Huntington Beach, an indoor climbing facility and several indoor kiddie gyms.

For great kids' museums, there's a Discovery Museum in Santa Ana that's made for children and Orange County Repertory Theater with plays that often feature themes for kids.

There's a movie theater at the beach in Surf City with kids movies featured regularly. If you don't find the movie you like there at Surfcity 6 Cinemas, go to Edwards Charter 5 in Huntington Beach for a kids movie if one's appearing.

So, if you think you can't travel with kids, think again. Surf City loves babies, toddlers, kids, teens and tweens.  Bring 'em along for the time of their life (and yours)!
