About Long Beach

Long Beach is a city located on the pacific coast of California. It’s the third largest city in Southern California and is part of the Greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. It has its own airport as well as one of the busiest shipping sea ports. While once a less-than-desirable tourist destination, the city has transformed itself into a resort town. It provides a great blend of urban life with a relaxed, beachside community. It’s a culturally diverse city, with a rich variety of things to see and experience, and a fantastic range of restaurants.

The weather in Long Beach is mild, with summer temperatures rarely exceeding 32°C. In the winter months, the temperature rarely drops below 4°C with a lot of clear, sunny days. There is very little rainfall annually in Long Beach. The best time to visit in terms of temperature is between March and mid-July and October through December.

Hiring a boat in Long Beach is a great option for visitors looking to make the most of their stay. With miles of beautiful California coastline and massive harbors to explore, spending a day cruising on a boat is a popular choice for many travelers. While it is generally nice year-round, it’s advisable for winter visitors to pack warmer layers if planning on a day out on the water, as it can be cool, especially if the sun isn’t out.

While not a boat you can take out on the water, one of the biggest attractions in Long Beach is the Queen Mary, a retired 1930’s ocean liner that has been converted into a hotel with a museum and restaurants.

While onshore, be sure to stop at the famous Aquarium of the Pacific. It’s a massive aquarium that hosts over 11,000 animals, and it’s an excellent way to spend a rainy day or visit if you have kids. In April, the Toyota Grand Prix takes over the city for a weekend with car racing, live entertainment and other activities. If you’re in the mood for some retail therapy or need a bite to eat, check out the shopping of Shoreline Village, a charming commercial center on the waterfront.
