Park cheap at 4th and Cherry. My fave restaurants in this area: Lola's (creative Mexican), 4th Street Vine (wine bar), Aji Peruvian cuisine, The Pike (fish grill). Great people watching, all types of artsy folk.

Retro row is advertised in all the brochures as an eclectic Art district with vintage shops. I found a run down area with some places that reminded me of the salvation army. Skip this area, heat for Belmont shore instead.

First, I need to say that I LOVE 4th street during the day. It was hard to give it three stars because I practically lived at Portfolio coffee house in my college years, and all of the quirky vintage shops lining the street are so much fun. It's a great place to go digging for treasure. That said, beware when... More

4th St. (aka Retro Row) gets better every year. Go there for the dive bars, the funky people, the vintage clothing stores and the mid-century moderns furniture retailers. There are a couple of nice places for lunch/dinner like the new Argentinian/Italian pasta place P3 and a modern pho establishment Number Nine. Care for a beer? Go to The Pike, owend... More

Coffee shops, boutiques, hair salons, and historic structures, oh my! Definitely a hidden charmer in historic Belmont Heights.

small shops large prices. Nothing special. We've been in the antique business for several years and one of the things we enjoy doing on vacations is going to antique stores. These stores had some great pieces but they were more then we'd spend retail in Chicago. If you look hard enough you may find something but not worth the time... More

Love this area! It's all vintage and well within the safe zone of Long Beach. Give it a shot. You just might find that little item you can't find anywhere else at a decent price!

LIKE the sidewalk extentions"parkettes..VERY cool. LIKE the eclectic mix of shops and cafes. WE ride our bikes often in this area. 4th Street is TOO narrow to mix bikes with cars at high traffic hours.The Bike planners must never ride commuter bikes on our streets.IF U ride on our streets..BE careful.
