Came down to Long Beach by taking the wrong turning. So glad we did, what an awsum place. Marina, pier, lighthouse bars and restaurants. I suppose it’s easier to say what hasn’t it got. Great vibe and something for all, fabulous

It had been years since I had been in downtown Long Beach - and the improvements were amazing. Clean, well lit, tons of interesting restaurants, seemingly safe and pedestrian friendly. Will certainly visit again!

Downtown Long Beach is a wonder of city planning and civic pride. It is a bustling but not scary busy place with lots of loft and new urban residences and restaurant and shops galore. A great walking area, and you are close to the Queen...More

First time in L.A. and it was recommended to go to this spot. There is something for everyone to do. Plenary of shops, restaurants and activities for the kids. A little bit of something for everyone.

I think the way to learn this is to first decide what you want to see and then how much time you want to spend on each place. check out TA's Lists of Things to Do and See, under Long Beach
