The Long Beach Waterfront is a fun place to hang out for a couple of hours. There are wide sidewalks, some grassy areas, trendy restaurants, the aquarium, and the historically famous Queen Mary.

The whole area around the Queen Mary and the pier across the bay was beautiful and full of dining and activities. Great for all ages and all events. Good family atmosphere and good night life.

Features a lighthouse, an aquarium next door, the port that lots of mini tours depart from, next to a mall and restaurants.

Pretty area with nice restarants and green spaces along the waterfront. Enjoyable place on a nice summer day. Parking is nearby but is a bit pricey.

The Long Beach waterfront provides the opportunity to enjoy beautiful views of the harbor, and a pleasant walk or bike ride. The Queen Mary is docked nearby.

We were dropped by shuttle here and had a lovely harbour cruise. We then enjoyed a delicious meal at the outback restaurant. It was busy but clean and had lovely views.

Had a most enjoyable evening in this area, with a number of busy and enticing restaurants (chose Charlies Louisiana BBQ and was not disappointed), then just strolled around bought a frozen yoghurt and some lovely chocolates for later. Watching the sunset over the harbour and watching the passing parade was most enjoyable. Its a very pleasant foreshore complex.

The water in the harbor is nasty. It was full of trash and looked awful. I was a bit concerned for the sea lion that popped up in there. Straws, bags, bottles, etc. just floating around. There really aren't that many stores around the harbor and across the walking bridge to the outlets there aren't that many stores either. The... More

The Aquarium was an excellent choice while in Long Beach for entertainment. Beautiful walk along the ocean that is paved with restaurants to one side and shopping, did not see a beach you could go onto.
