The Long Beach Waterfront is a great place to take in the scenery. The path is wide and well marked for bicyclists and walkers. There is a lot of scenery, boats, water, people. Be sure to keep the meter fed if you park a car. We were there on a Holiday and it seemed most people didn't think they needed... More

Nice view if the lighthouse with a beautiful palm lined bike path. Great place for a picnic or nap. Fun stores to window shop. Plenty of nice restaurants and bars.

- The beach is much prettier than Santa Monica and Venice Beach. More peaceful with more families with kids and less homeless people. - Food was expensive. Be prepared to pay tourist price. - It will take about 1h 30 mins to get from downtown LA to Long Beach via train. - Seems to have lots of parking sports but... More

Those of you who don't know the Long Beach waterfront...well you need to see it. From the portside looking back at the city, the expansive views are just beautiful. To hang out by the water is also very nice and relaxing. When in Long Beach this is one of the areas you need to catch.

This is certainly a pretty beach for a stroll. The tide (and the cleaning power of the tides) are limited by the breakwater, though, so I'm not sure that I would want to get in the ocean in Long Beach.

Where we went on the beach was almost empty, but now I see why it's called Long Beach! The day we went it was so bright out we could barely see! (just about all my photos from there are white!) I’m not a huge fan of beaches, we didn’t linger for too long, but the sand was really quite nice... More
