Located southeast of Los Angeles, the California city of Huntington Beach is known for its surf beaches and long surfboards. The city has several attractions, including the International Surfing Museum, which displays surf memorabilia. The town is also home to the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, which is home to hundreds of bird species. A visit to this city isn't complete without a stop at the equestrian center, gardens, and lakes.
One of the most prominent employers in Huntington Beach is Boeing, which is headquartered here. The Boeing company began in Huntington Beach, when Donald Douglas, Jr., purchased the area and converted the land to an aerospace center. As the city grew, the company relocated to neighboring Anaheim, and the city's weather changed from a mild Mediterranean climate to a moderate Mediterranean climate. By 1990, the company became Boeing and shifted its headquarters to Huntington Beach.
The city's Economic Development office has recommended Ruby's Hospitality Group, which has a history of working in the Orange County area. The company has already won the contract. The City Council will choose from the three finalists to fill the space. If approved, it would reopen the Huntington Beach Pier. The diner closed six months ago and is currently occupied by Let's Go Fishing. The proposed restaurant would have a much smaller footprint than before.
