Bringing out the best of the California Coast are the beautiful plants that grow so well in Southern to Central California. The beautiful poinsettias are abundant, come in over a dozen varieties, and are used as much for their decorative appeal, coming in artificial versions, as well.
Welcome to Seal Beach, one of those delightful small towns with a Main Street, free parking, twinkling lights at night, and the cheery feel of Christmas in the air, thanks to decorative candy canes and poinsettias. It's Christmas every day in Seal Beach because of the tiny, sparkling lights that drape buildings and trees, providing pure magic.
Christmas is when the shops pull out all the stops. Even the Realtor displays are fun to look at. You can imagine a time when folks strolled in their woolen capes and fancy hats, singing carols and spreading good tidings.
Lighted reindeer, and twinkling lights that are strewn along the white gate/fence offer a soft, warm tone to the evening setting sun and nightfall in Seal Beach. Seal Beach is located on the northernmost border of Orange County, Calif. Los Angeles County border and the city of Long Beach share the borderline with Seal Beach. Its bay has a jetty to the ocean for boats leaving Long Beach's Alamitos Bay Marina, a public marina that residents of Seal Beach easily access as they have no marina to call their own.
Seal Beach usually celebrates the Christmas holiday with a parade, tree lighting ceremony, and a visit from Santa at the Seal Beach Pier sponsored by the Seal Beach Chamber of Commerce, the most active local nonprofit group supporting community involvement and programs.
