I've lived in Long Beach for 20 years and have seen the changes made at the waterfront. Now it is a great place to eat, walk, run or just hang out. Lots of things to see and do for both adults and kids.

I'm a Long Beach resident and I love coming here as much as I can. If you're visiting Long Beach don't forget the Waterfront! You can see all kinds of ships and sea life. Picnics here are great and you might even catch a TV series or movie being filmed around the area!

The waterfront underwent a huge makeover in the 90's after the Navy moved out. This is now a great area to spend a couple hours or a whole afternoon and evening.Lots and lots of restaurants and attractions. Walkways connecting everything. The Aquarium is close by along with movie theaters and the ferris wheel and roller coaster.

Great place to visit early in the morning. It's a perfect waterfront spot, clean and safe, with a variety of ways to enjoy (walk, run, sit, meditate)

We moved down to the Long Beach waterfront in May 2016 and we have not regretted it for a day! If you want anything like a beach/urban setting, this is the place to be. There's 1 million things to do, the beach is on one side and the East Village arts District is on the other side. Come and visit... More

If you have a chance to come nearby, stop by the Marina, leave your car and walk around these beautiful homes, nicely decorated for Christmas season. You'll be amazed by the variety of styles and rich decorations

We came in after a rare rain in Long Beach, and the air was so clean, you could literally see the mountains. However, in this case, we were focused on the walk. It's a good walk - we walked around, visited the base of the lighthouse, and continued back to the city proper. This is good for a good 30... More

We visited the waterfront in the early evenings; we took the trolley bus from the Queen Mary. Lots of things going on at the waterfront --- lots to see and do. Seemed clean and safe. We liked it.
