The Huntington Beach Fourth of July spectacular offers a full day of celebration each year.

IMG 0813 Copy 800x513 Huntington Beach Fourth of July 2014

The 2013 4th of July schedule for Huntington Beach is as follows:

  • 7am – 11am – Lake Park Breakfast
  • 7am – 12pm – Surf City 5k Run
  • 10am – 12pm – 110th Huntington Beach Fourth of July Parade
  • 9pm – Fireworks show at the Huntingon Pier

 

The Huntington Beach Fourth of July Parade is an amazing celebration. Over the years it has seen such celebrities as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), Natalie Wood, Zsa Zsa Gabor, astronaut Buzz Aldrin and Shirley Jones.

At 10:00 am, the parade begins on PCH at 9th Street, left on to Main Street and ends just past Yorktown. It is quite an experience. Whether you have never been or have been attending for the last 20 years (or more) or have never had the opportunity to see it, make sure you get out and discover what all of the excitement is about.

The amazing fireworks display begins at 9:00 pm, and there is VIP seating available.

For more information on the Huntington Beach Fourth of July celebration, please see http://www.hb4thofjuly.org.

If you haven’t ever been to the Huntington Beach Fourth of July, be sure to give yourself a treat and go enjoy all that it has to offer. Just know that the parking is difficult and taking a little time to plan ahead will make your life much easier.

 

In addition to the Fourth of July festivities, there is a three day pier plaza festival from July 4, 2014 through July 6, 2014.  The festival runs from 10am until 9:30pm on the 4th, from 10am to 9pm on July 5th and on Sunday from 10am to 6pm.  The festival includes exhibitors, food vendors, entertainment and more.

What Will $1,000,000 Buy You in Newport Beach?

What Will $1,000,000 Buy You in Newport Beach?

 

Newport Beach is one of those places where many people dream about living and many of us are fortunate to enjoy.  With our wonderful weather, outdoor amenities and gorgeous views come higher home prices than many other places in the country.

 

While $1,000,000 may buy you a huge mansion in other parts of the country, $1,000,000 in Newport Beach is more of a home for a move up buyer (usually created by a change in circumstance or income) than a luxury home.

 

If you’re wondering why a person would pay $1,000,000 for a home in Newport Beach that might more typically be classified as a moderate home elsewhere, consider the picture taken below in January at the beach in 80 degree weather.

We know we pay higher prices for our homes, and we celebrate the advantages that come with the location that drives the prices.

 

Below is a home that sold recently for just about $1,000,000.
