When visiting Seal Beach you need to eat at Taco Surf on Main Street and have a bowl of Scorpion Chowder. It is Delish!

Residents of the town tend to be 50+ in age or families with kids and not much in between so this is NOT a party town. Very mellow town which is exactly what I wanted since I live in San Diego.
