Great beach, easy parking on the street. Restrooms and showers are available and are okay. Good places to eat near the boardwalk and don't miss the food trucks for lunch

One of the finest and cleanest Beaches in US. Long Beach is still very much undervalued Towns. Easy transport via Train and Buses. Summertime is very busy in the city and on the beach. Many activities. Highly recommended for the beach lovers.

I would rather stay at the beach and take the train into the city. It is about an hour ride by train and I’m sure the hotel in Long Beach will be cheaper
