California’s beach towns are famous all over the world. A lot of visitors come to our shores in search of the lifestyle and vibe that is presented in TV shows and movies.
On the contrary, residents and connoisseurs of the area miss the authenticity many towns had before the booming age of travel. It has been said that ‘Old California’ does not exist anymore near big population centers.
But, I digress. I have found my slice of ‘Old California’ not that far from Los Angeles.
Enjoy your day in Old Town Seal Beach. We love it and hope that you do too!

WHERE TO PARK IN SEAL BEACH
There is plenty of free parking on the city’s streets. Now, if you choose this parking option, pay attention to time restrictions. Most spots have a 1 or 2-hour limit.
Public lots (next to the pier and at the end of 1st Street) allow you to park for a longer period of time. You pay according to the time spent on site. These lots allow you to pay (and extend your time) from your phone (you need to download the application though).
