No. 28 Seal Beach, CA
Annual Visitors: 2,100,000
Join the folks strolling on the old wooden pier—the second longest in California after the one in Oceanside—and get something to eat at popular Ruby’s Diner, at the pier’s end. There are lovely views of Long Beach Harbor, and waves good enough to draw the longboard crowd. While it’s quiet compared to nearby Huntington Beach, be prepared, that selling point was enough to attract more than two million to Seal Beach last year.
