Long Beach is the 5th largest city in California and the newest coastal destination in southern California. Long Beach boasts amenities few other cities can offer. Its blend of big city convenience with the friendly, relaxed atmosphere of an ocean-side community is unmatched. The scenic downtown, waterfront marina is great for pleasure walking, shopping, taking in numerous entertainment options, and dining at one of more than 100 restaurants within an eight-block area. Take a harbor cruise alongside breathtaking ocean bays; bike or walk on dedicated paths next to 5.5 miles of sandy beaches. Visit world-class attractions like the Queen Mary, the Aquarium of the Pacific, and several eclectic museums and one-of-a kind art galleries and shops, or take a gondola tour of canals that embrace the romance of Venice. Long Beach offers sunny skies and moderate climate all year long.
