In years past, I enjoyed parts of the Long Beach Waterfront while making my way along the boardwalk in Shoreline Village with its interesting shops and inviting restaurants. This past June, however, I experienced the waterfront from another perspective. While strolling along the waterfront sidewalk that runs between the Hotel Maya and the ever popular Reef Restaurant, I enjoyed another... More

We spent 1/2 day at the waterfront, we enjoyed a lovely boar ride around the Queen Mary, shopping along the boardwalk and a wonderful lunch. We would definitely love to come back!

We went for a ride on the Aqua link it was great, it is a water taxi, it made 4 stops and returned us to where we started. The charge is $5 each way. Great way to see different areas.

It was awesome to see the surfers and boogie boarders in Long Beach, compliments of hurricane Marie. Though the storm brought big waves for water sports, I know it brought water close to the homes. Wish there was a happy medium of bringing surf to the Long Beach shores that didn't affect the houses. Perhaps like Seal Beach - a... More

I'm not sure if it is because I visited Long Beach late morning, about 11a.m on a weekday, because this whole area was like a dead town. One has to walk close to 20 mins from the Long Beach Metro station just to reach this area. The whole place was so quiet, shops were still closed. I mainly wanted to... More

Researched whale watching before I left home and all reviews were great for Harbour Breeze and they did not disappoint. Parked at the Aquarium, if you visit the Aquarium your ticket is discounted. Went out on the 12pm tour which lasts for 3 hours. The guides are informative, boat is clean, lots of places to sit. We saw lots of... More

This is a nice place to walk after dinner. There is the Aquarium and great views of the harbor and the Queen Mary. There are a lot of bicycles and people taking walks. Lots of shops and restaurants.

I am a Long Beach local, so just as a Parisian might turn up their noses at the Eiffel Tower (it was built only recently, by European standards), I feel compelled to give an honest perspective of the Long Beach waterfront. If you have the time, by all means include it in your itinerary. It is certainly not the Louvres,... More
