With five miles of beach and year-round sunshine, it’s easy to see why LA County’s second largest town is so popular. Home to a thriving arts scene, the Queen Mary ship and a maritime museum, Long Beach is an exciting family destination. That's before we even mention the oceanic activities available here, from stand-up paddleboarding to romantic venetian gondola rides, Long Beach has the best of both worlds.
Long Beach is a beautiful beachfront area, brimming with shopping and dining options. Its close proximity to Los Angeles makes it a great option to add to the start or end of your California getaway.
