Long Beach, Long Beach

4.5
Strikingly different from the city's concrete jungle, Long Beach offers a welcome retreat with its long stretches of soft sand, clean water, and open sky. The beach has a resort destination feel, with a long bamboo boardwalk perfect for a long run, a separate bicycle lane, and plenty of benches. Apartment buildings line the back of the beach, but a handful of nearby food trucks keep you nourished. A swimming area is roped off, and lifeguards patrol the beach. Onsite amenities include bike rental and beach volleyball courts. Using our custom trip planner, Long Beach attractions like Long Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    Clean, good crowd, and close to other bars and restaurants too. The boardwalk gives you the opportunity to bike and get to other places walking without having to move your car.  more »
