water-front community built on five man-made islands by one developer
-- The Christiana Company.

waterfront with their own boat slip. There are four guard-gated
communities within the area and several gated complexes, many with
pool and tennis facilities. Over 3,500 of these residences have
direct access to the Pacific Ocean. Huntington Harbour is an upbeat,
energetic, upward moving community with its own organizations exclusive

Club, Philharmonic Society of Orange County, Orange County Performing
Arts groups, Anglers Clubs, Garden Clubs, Huntington Harbour Newcomers,
Volunteers in Multiple Sclerosis, La Familia Auxiliary supporting
Orangewood Children's Home and other philanthropic groups.
Huntington Harbour is a well-maintained, upmarket community with
most homes valued at over a million dollars. The majority of home
owners either own their own business or are senior executives or
presidents of large companies.
50% own second homes in either the Palm Springs, local mountains
or San Diego areas. Most residents travel extensively. Prestige
and luxury automobiles are standard buys. The active social life
of the community is reflected in large purchases; liquor, gifts,
catering and interior decoration. There is community-wide participation
during the Christmas season, with the annual Boat Parade and extensive
holiday decorating. The Harbour is a boating community with small
electric boats up to 100+ foot yachts in evidence; generating typical

bi-monthly and mailed to each and every home and condominium in
the Harbour. The Harbour Light features highlights of events and
news of the many community organizations such as the yacht clubs,
the Philharmonic Society groups, garden clubs, newcomers, travel
groups, and many more.
