Must-See Sights on the Long Beach Waterfront

Must-See Sights on the Long Beach Waterfront

No trip to the SoCal seaside city of Long Beach, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) south of Los Angeles, would be complete without experiencing the waterfront. From floating museums to sun–kissed beaches, here are a few of the best sights and attractions along the Long Beach waterfront.

Queen Mary

This British luxury liner, larger and more extravagant than the Titanic, has been moored in Long Beach since 1967. Visitors can step aboard the floating museum to learn about its art deco design and storied history.

Aquarium of the Pacific

Southern California’s largest aquarium displays some 11,000 animals across 50 exhibits, with a focus on the biodiversity of the Pacific Ocean. Purchase your admission ticket in advance so you have more time to spend with the sharks, sea turtles, jellies, and lorikeets. 

Rainbow Harbor and Marina

Rainbow Harbor is anchored in the heart of downtown Long Beach. It’s your jumping off point for a day of whale watching, deep sea fishing, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, and other water adventures.

Marine Park

No trip to Long Beach would be complete without a day of sun, sand, and sea, and that’s just what’s on offer at Marine Park. Visitors to this public beach park find volleyball courts, a playground, picnic areas, and the life-guarded Mother’s Beach swimming area, perfect for visiting families.

We are limiting the number of visitors, requiring advance timed reservations, and managing traffic flow to ensure social distancing, requiring face coverings and temperature checks, providing numerous hand-sanitizing stations, and much more.
