What is the neighborhood bounded by Adams/Yorktown/Beach/Main like? Would you say it is very suburban (drive everywhere, dinner in shopping centers), or is it close enough to downtown HB to be walkable and interesting? Looking for a place that is not the total burbs, is accessible to downtown and the beaches, but is not in the middle of the party.

You would be better off biking from Adams/Yorktown down to Main/PCH.

Lot of houses, condos and apartments jammed together with very limited on street parking. Plan on riding the bicycles downtown. Very congested and noisy at times.

fun neighborhood... the area near main street is more family oriented, it gets more party centered as you get closer to beach

Ok, so Beach is the party scene, not Main? Interesting and different than I'd thought, thank you!

No party scene on Beach Blvd....... Withing the area mentioned, a lot of apartments so there could be some activity in the evenings. Fair number of illegal aliens and tweekers also living within those boundaries. Main Street is calm except for July 4th.

Maybe I shouldn't have used party scene... It just gets louder with less pride in ownership the closer you get to beach.

It's not the best area of HB. They just opened a massive apartment complex at Beach and Adams that does not have adequate parking. The residents of that complex are using the residential area. This is a useful site... Make sure to adjust the dates to get the full picture. https://www.crimereports.com/

i can't even bear to look at the crime stats for where I live now, much worse I'm sure in a large, east coast city!

I'd put Huntington ahead of Costa Mesa (east side, back bay close-ish) due to beach access, but maybe I shouldn't have. You guys are increasing my fear that HB will be a sh*t show scene that we at over 35 will tire of quickly. If I walk around Costa Mesa (the grocery store/coffee/dinner/errands) am I going to be considered strange?

I lived at Beach and Adams from 1999-2001, in a gated community called Seabridge that was very nice (well, except the soundproofing between upper and lower units was horrible). Getting to downtown HB was not walkable, at least at my age! I think the Main Street area has gotten a lot more crazy since I lived there....but I still miss that weather!
