Long Beach Travel Guide
Welcome to Long Beach, CA!
Long Beach, California's fifth largest city, is part of Greater Los Angeles. Situated along the coast of the Pacific Ocean, Long Beach is one of the busiest seaports in the world, as well as a world-class seaside resort destination, with numerous shopping districts and attractions. The Queen's Market Place, situated close to pier J, is an open mall designed to look like an English Village. One of downtown's liveliest areas is Pine Avenue, where Long Beach's nightlife lives. The Aquarium of the Pacific is a world-renowned research facility and tourist destination, with over 10,000 animals. In mid-April racing vehicles and fans invade the city for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Perhaps the most popular attraction, the R.M.S. Queen Mary, is a former ocean liner that has been transformed into a grand hotel.
The Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach is dedicated to preserving Hispanic and Chicano culture through exhibits and artisitic displays.
