Yorktown in Huntington Beach is a small gem in a larger city. Yorktown is a mere 30 acres of upscale homes (the most prominent subdivision being Huntington Classics) and special senior living that is architecturally integrated into the neighborhood.
The community of Yorktown is less than two miles from schools, shopping, and entertainment. Nearby is the famous Huntington Beach Pier, one of the best places for fishing in the area, although it is perhaps most well known as a prime viewing area for watching surfers as they ride the neighborhood waves.
This southern California beach culture is just a small part of Huntington Beach and Yorktown’s appeal. The city has an outstanding library (founded by the Carnegie Corporation in 1914) with an extensive genealogical section. Designed by architects Richard and Dion Neutra, it is located within the city’s Central Park. Also within Huntington Beach’s Central Park are riding trails, a Frisbee Golf course, and the Shipley Nature Center.
The Huntington Beach area boasts the Bolsa Chica Wetlands, a lovely nature area with beautiful hiking trails for residents. The city is also rich in culture, and the Huntington Arts Center complex is a showcase for wide-ranging talent.
Shopping and dining are conveniently located to the community of Yorktown, which maintains a quiet residential feel of single family homes that welcome all age groups.
