* * *

Ciudad (pob., 2000: 189.594 hab.) en el sudoeste del estado de California en EE.UU. Esta ciudad de la costa del Pacífico, primero se llamaba Shell Beach y luego de su parcelación (1901) pasó a ser conocida como Pacific City.

Para promoverla como centro vacacional junto al mar, fue rebautizada como Huntington Beach en honor al magnate ferroviario Henry E. Huntington. Sus principales recursos económicos son las refinerías y los pozos petrolíferos.
