Huntington Beach Then & Now: 1950s 'Mayberry By The Sea'
THEN // In the 1950s, Huntington Beach truly was "Mayberry by the Sea." With a hardware store, drugstore, bakery, pet supplies shop, and other "functional" businesses, downtown was where locals shopped for basic goods and services.
NOW // It's been all but completely revamped in 2016. Downtown has morphed from small town to major tourist destination, replete with restaurants, bars, and shops.
