Although Huntington Beach is best known as the Surf City USA, the city's early residents slept on the sand or set up tents. Then, oil rigs began to line the sand, and a musical based on the town was performed. However, two major problems plagued the city in recent years, causing tourism to decline. As of early October, the town has experienced an outbreak of the Coronavirus virus, and a significant oil spill occurred in the Pacific Coast neighborhood in February.

In addition to the local surfing culture, the city is also home to the annual world surfing championships. The city is known as the Surfing Capital of the World, thanks to its consistently high quality waves. In 2005, the Huntington Beach City School District officially registered its trademark as Surfer City USA. The Orange County Register and Fountain Valley School District are the other two school districts in the city. The community is also home to The Pegasus School, a nationally recognized blue ribbon school. Grace Lutheran is another private K-8 school.
