Long Beach Waterfront is well worth the exploring. Beautiful sunsets, restaurants and specialty shops make this location well worth perusing. You maybe pleasantly surprised at seals close to the walkway at the pier.

I was here at 6 am. The color change in the sky was beautiful! I loved seeing the different water birds such as pelicans, cormorants, and even those mischievous seagulls. People were walking, running, fishing, and catching Pokemon. It was also peaceful seeing the calm ocean water.

Be prepared to walk...walk...walk.... Started out at the aquarium, then walked to harbor to catch a 45 minute bay cruise which was worth every penny! Then out into the bay and saw all the man-made oil (Valdeez) islands Interesting info on that. The lighthouse was great and this harbor is worth every picture taken. It took over 200 shots in...

We stopped here after visiting Shoreline Village. It's a nice area to take a walk or sit and just look around. We took a bunch of pictures as it has a great view of the City of Long Beach. There are benches to sit and take a break.

Even on an off night, it will take some time to find parking anywhere near the mall/dining areas (Rainbow Harbor, Aquarium, Pike Outlets). Meters are $2/hour and require coins (don't take credit cards). Valet is the sure thing, but starts at $6 the first hour (plus tip).

Good news - it's the ocean! Bad news - this beach needs some clean-up. Needs some litter patrol. The beach front has a nice wide paved walk path - suitable for lots of bicycles and pedestrians. Definitely not a tropical beach. Even for a city beach, this could stand some improvement. Get the trash out of the landscaping.

Nice pretty little place for a couple of days , plenty of walking and good photo ops , plenty of seats to people watch . Sit in the sun watch the boats and the world go by then choose one of the many places to eat and it's very pretty all lit up at night too

What a beautiful place Long Beach is. We walked past the marina envious of the lifestyle and the beauty of the light house. Had a lovely meal. But ... All changed at the beach. The sands at a distance looked lovely. Up close they were littered with pieces of plastic and bottle tops ( this was at lunch time) and... More
