  • Walk in the neighborhood of Downtown Long Beach are very scrumptious! Jalanannya is very wide and tall buildings and palm trees. I suggested to the road in this area in the morning, because it is too hot during the day, while the evenings rather quiet

Where to stay in Long Beach

Most of Long Beach's attractions are near the water, so look for accommodations around East Ocean Boulevard. Downtown sits right in this vicinity, so you'll find plenty of rooms in large hotels, many of which have undergone recent and extensive renovations. For quieter environs with convenient access to the beach, look for cottages, houses, and apartments for rent east of downtown. Many of these offer ocean views. Naples Island at the east end of the beach is Long Beach's toniest neighborhood; the prices of accommodations here reflect this.
