I couldn't resist the opportunity to take a jog on the pathways here, and I'm not even a jogger. At many spots the paths run parallel to Ocean Drive and the views are impeccable. To one direction you see the Queen Mary and the Carnival...More

Looking for suggestions for dining (possibly non-chain seafood or Mexican cuisine) near Long Beach Waterfront on a weekday evening next month. Something casual and comfortable for a lone diner following a whale watching tour. Thank you in advance!
