The port at the Long Beach waterfront is more than 100 years old and well worth visiting. Take in views of the harbor and the epic Queen Mary by strolling through Shoreline Village. There are a multitude of restaurants to get your taste buds going, from deliciously familiar chains to local finds. What floats your boat?
For you seafaring folk, visit the Pacific Sailing Yachting Club to learn how locals make use of the bay. If you're with the kids, they'll get a kick out of the themed kiosks and shops; everyone loves to dress up as a pirate! For the evening, make reservations for Parker's Lighthouse, and enjoy a romantic dinner.
