Long Beach Overview

Long Beach is where the action begins and the fun never ends. From the regal Queen Mary and spectacular Aquarium of the Pacific to stirring Broadway shows, live music venues and hundreds of exclusive dining destinations--all centrally located.  Airport-close, a brief and pleasant cruise away from Catalina Island and a short distance from Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and everything Southern California has to offer--Long Beach is the perfect destination!

Take advantage of the city's public transportation services available both on land and water! The bright red Passport Shuttle offers service to major Long Beach attractions and is free throughout several stops in the downtown cultural spots. During summer months, you can also hail water taxis, the Aquabus and the Aqualink, with services between the Queen Mary and Alamitos Bay Landing.  All shuttles and water taxis are bicycle friendly.

Driving access to our 5.5 miles of beach is a breeze!  Start at the heart of Long Beach where you can access the beach by going to Marina Green Park off of Shoreline Drive, continue driving to Bluff Park at the corner of Ocean Boulevard and Junipero Avenue or proceed on Ocean Boulevard towards the peninsula and park in one of many parking lots available.
