Long-Beach is the ultimate southern California vacation destination. With the blue Pacific at its doorstep, outdoor recreation, fine restaurants and hotels, an eclectic array of shopping choices, museums, art galleries and entertainment, it's no wonder Long Beach is one of the most visited places in the state of California. Long Beach is so diverse; it has something for everyone, whether you're visiting for business or pleasure. Just a few of the highlights include the Aquarium of the Pacific, one of the nation's best sea life aquariums; the historic Queen Mary, the Long Beach Museum of Art and the beautiful Shoreline Village on the Long Beach Waterfront. Colorful Shoreline Village is a constant buzz of activity with outdoor live entertainment, bicycle rentals, rides, foods of all kinds, and some of the most unique shopping to be found anywhere in the world. Frequent daily departures for stunning Catalina Island can also be found at the waterfront. Long Beach has enough to keep you busy all on its own, but it's also just a short drive to other major attractions as Disneyland and Universal Studios tours. This is the California many people think about when they imagine California - miles of white sand beach, stunning sunsets, outdoor fun, world class shopping and dining. Long Beach, California is simply one of the best cities that southern California has to offer.
