If you have a motorcycle you can park in the structures downtown for free. All the # streets from 6th to 20th are free and like the previous response said, watch the signs and don't park inside 15ft of a fire hydrant.

There is very little free beach parking in HB. Watch where you park. Read the signs. The parking control officers in HB really enjoy sticking it to the public. Best deal for beacg parking is the city parking structure east of main street and north of Walnut.

If you go inland past Walnut ,( 1st strret from PCH), from PCH between 5th street and Goldenwest Ave, the residential parking is free and available even on the weekends.

Thanks for the question and replies. I rarely go to the beach, but plan to take the kids this summer. I might just pay for parking, but I appreciate the tips .

Magnolia and Banning just east of PCH by Edison High School has free street parking. You can walk from there. Or you could try Brookhurst near PCH but it's a further walk.

Parking isn't plentiful at all times but try Newport just south of the Santa Ana river. It's a dog beach but just south of that is no dogs allowed.

I challenge anyone to find a parking spot in that area in the summer.
