I love walking through the canals of Naples Island in Long Beach. There are magnificent homes to look at, even some remaining craftsman-style places, and it's easy to get lost in thought and calm of the canals. Neighbors are friendly (for the most part) and on 2nd St there's plenty of shopping and dining choices for even the most particular... More

In the quiet, upscale Naples Island neighborhood, near several great restaurants, the Marina and the Long Beach Yacht Club is the best Cigar Lounge in Long Beach. Big Daddy's Cigars located at the intersection of Naples Plaza and 2nd Street has a large outdoor patio, and lots of lounge seating inside. Friendly staff, large humidor and great cigar selection.

Naples is always a fun place to be during the holidays. Almost everyone along the channel decorates their property. Take an evening to stroll around. It will most definitely get you into the holiday mood.

I came there because I happened to be near Long Beach and I had heard it was a nice neighborhood for a walk. Well, it may be peaceful and nice, but there is not much to see apart some canal cramped with boats, and houses in which people, knowing that people like strolling around their neighborhood, arrange their garden furniture...

This was our biggest disappointment in Long Beach. Not much happening here. Maybe a nice neighborhood on water but it is difficult for a tourist to grasp this. Parking is very limited and controlled. We advise you to investigate for yourself and consider skipping it!

Just nice and peaceful for a little stroll. Do let this be one of your sites to see in Long Beach. Right next to Belmont Shore!!!

Charming ... atmosphere of Venice with the canals and narrow streets. The Christmas decor and lighting on the homes really make this a must visit during the holiday period ! We visited after the new year when half the homes had taken down their Xmas lights but still worth it.

I've lived within miles of this little gem my whole life and visited for the first time (twice) this past Christmas. These people go all out. It's amazing. Definitely the start of a new family holiday tradition to stroll among the beautifully decorated, canal side homes. Homeowners sit outside and sell hot chocolate and coffee, which is wonderful. One night... More

I loved the atmosphere for the Christmas boat parade. The houses have amazing light displays and the event if free! This will become a new family tradition. By the way, on other days, the Naples neighborhood is just a great area to take a walk.

We walk the canals at Christmas every year and frequently rent one of the Duffy boats to cruise the canals. It's a tradition in Long Beach and a special way to spend the evening. This year we were able to share it with friends from Illinois. Park near the fountain and walk back to Rivo Alto, taking the inside loop... More
