The Long Beach Waterfront is a popular attraction for visitors and residents. Riding the bike path, walking the pedestrian walk, wide open beaches and plethoria of ocean front eateries make this a unique destination not to be missed.

Easy to get to and never very crowded - lots of action on the water and the people watching is above average. Long Beach is just one of the coolest coastal cities in California - if not the coolest...

Great way to while away a few hours. Popular to bike, which I did on a borrowed mountain bike, but I also walked it. Views of lighthouse and Queen Mary highlight parts of the route

Couldn't leave Southern Calif. without going to the beach. Wasn't crowded when we went. You're sure to catch a nice ocean air and the walk in the sand is a lot of fun. I miss it now that I don't live there anymore but I don't miss a chance to go when I visit.

This is a nice walk taking in the ocean and marina with nice shops and eating places. We enjoyed our two day stay in long beach and the weather was great which really helps. Would go again.

Lovely view and walk of the light house. Awesome view of The Queen Mary as well. It's a lovely place to watch the sunset with the boats at the dock. Walk right over to Shoreline Village to dine and shop.

We got married here at the light house. It is so nice here. You can ride your bikes or walk around and have a picnic. Lots of grass area and the views are beautiful.

We stayed on Ocean Ave and my wife enjoyed walking to and along the Long Beach waterfront each morning. Although there was some construction and they were preparing for a Toyota event, the area was clean and well maintained. We walked there for lunch and found it to be very nice. My wife especially liked the marina area.

lovely jaunt along the waterfront - cool breeze - peaceful setting - we stopped at a little restaurant (can't remember the name) and had awesome clam chowder! This is a great spot to walk!
