Long Beach Waterfront has everything we were looking for. The harbor activities include wonderful beach shops, many restaurant choices, tourist attractions such as the aquarium and the Queen Mary, a free shuttle to take us everywhere, and harbor cruises, whale watching, the Catalina Express, etc. We spent the few days we had within a 15 mile radius of the airport,...

Whenever you want to detox some of the accumulated stress in your body, this is one place to go to. I enjoy walking along the strand and you'll definitely see a lot of people walking and riding their bikes.

Long beach is different because you are not on a beach surrounded by ocean. The beach was mainly empty on the Saturday morning we spend riding our bikes down the bike path. Relaxing, quiet, not busy, good place to just relax, take a quick dip, exercise, or play some volleyball.

Beautiful day last Sunday to walk around Shoreline Village and look at the waterfront. So many things to see and do. Try to plan your trip early in the day and skip holidays if you want to avoid the crowds.

Following a visit to aquarium we walked along the waterfront, lovely garden areas, plenty of seat benches, spotlessly clean, nice restrooms, we walked along to lighthouse and took pictures of Queen Mary across the waterfront. Lovely.

We had a few hours to kill between ship and plane, we found ourself walking the Long Beach Waterfront. Nice easy walk right across the bay from the Queen Mary. Worth the walk from the Aquarium. Might watch for the bikes they come up on you in a hurry. Looks like good place to lay out for a while.

There is a nice sidewalk walking path that winds around the waterfront. The lighthouse is surrounded by a green belt which is perfect for a picnic. The path also leads to the Aquarium of the Pacific. Close by are several restaurants as well as boats for whale watching

A nice park area with easy walking. Loved the weather! The lighthouse, view of the Queen Mary, grass area and small piers were nice. Beautiful flowers.

Beautiful place, lots of activity in port and in downtown. Beautiful city We went over on second street and walked around and people watching. The lights in the port along with the Queen Mary and the cruise ships made for exquisite evening lightshow.
