Pretty place to spend some time

Shopped at some smaller boutiques along here, plenty of things to look at, pretty beach views. Travelled on the free loop bus.

The long beach waterfront that I am referring to runs from the Long Beach Aquarium to Parkers Lighthouse. In between these two areas are many available activities and sights for all members of the family. There is a wide selection of restaurants, tours of the harbor, water transport, people watching, bike and personal transport rentals, aerial walkway linking the water... More

We went for a paddle in the sea, it was cold but invigorating. Nice clean beach and very warm when the suns out.

The Long Beach waterfront is great for families, couples and athletes as it has attractions for all. A six mile bike/walking path along the beach, lots of shops and restaurants and views of the Queen Mary are only a small portion of things to see and do along the waterfront.

The waterfront has many shops and bars and it is a beautiful place to stroll around especially at sunset!

This is a great spot to kill some time, and relax. I've been here a few times but the best was with the family. The kids enjoyed rolling down the hill and running back up to the top! Great view, restaurants near by. Plenty of places to have a picnic.

For such a well known place we were underwhelmed, Long beach is drab and lifeless. We stayed for a few hours and decided to go back to LA. I would not bother going there.

Not really much to see, but the view is quite spectacular. Visited during evening and over day, both gave me nice pictures
