Walkable OC? The New Huntington Beach in 1 Mile

Killer queso at Pacific Hideaway at Kimpton’s Shorebreak Hotel

My January print article in Oakland Magazine and Alameda Magazines, covering the OC but from a walkable standpoint. Yes, in a massive county of millions, Orange County’s Huntington Beach is all grown up with new and revamped hotels, restaurants, cocktails and spas, all in one walkable coastal mile, complete with SoCal sunsets and chill surfer vibe. Article here.

My other Oakland and Alameda Magazine articles include romantic getaways in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica and going well beyond wine in the Willamette Valley with beer, spirits, ciders, mead and, yes, wine.
