July 2nd in Seal Beach History


On this date in 1935, the Santa Ana Register ran this ad for the Glide’er Inn restaurant. We ran an 1975 for the Glide’er Inn here, but this ad is for the  original location at Coast Highway and Bay Boulevard (now Pacific Coast Highway and Seal Beach Boulevard). In 1944, the Navy took over Anaheim Landing, and the Glide’er Inn relocated to 14th Street and Pacific Coast Highway, the current location of Mahé, You can see a 1943 aerial photo of the Glide’er Inn at its original location across from the Seal Beach Airport here.

    My dad worked at the glider inn from the late 30s till his passing in 1943 My family was good friends with everyone that worked there. I always loved eating there as a child with my mom and dad. I even took my family there until it was sold. Loved the small town feel. Bob Black.
