Looking at moving in the complex at 2000 PCH in Huntington. It would be my wife, myself, our 10 year old daughter and our 8 year old son. Kids would share a room (which they're fine with) as it is only 2 bedrooms. We love the beach view and the view itself. Would most likely only be for the year until we found something more stable...

My question is, am I moving my kids to a party crazy area? Does this make me a bad parent? Is it safe?

This is far enough away from the downtown craziness. I raised my three (step) kids on 10th Street. No problems. Good families, and some good stories about growing up.

I recently moved from 1200 PCH after 6 years of living there and I wouldn't call it a "crazy party area" by any stretch of the imagination. Main street can get rowdy during "drinking holidays" (st patty's, cinco de mayo, july 4th, etc) but once you are about 5 blocks away things quiet down a lot. By the time you get to 20th street you are far away from it all. There are plenty of kids in the neighborhood and the local schools are highly regarded. Definitely safe, although I'd say the one thing to be careful of is getting hit by a car, as there is a lot more traffic here than in other residential neighborhoods and the cars go pretty fast down PCH.
