Aquatic Capital of America
Long Beach has long been overshadowed by its bigger and more famous neighbor known as the City of Angels. However, in recent years Long Beach has shaken off its gritty reputation by developing its waterfront into a welcoming area for tourism. The Queen Mary luxury liner has been the city's biggest draw since the ship permanently docked here in 1967, but a sleek new aquarium has helped Long Beach strengthen its claim to be the "Aquatic Capital of America." Art museums, shops, public golf courses, and sandy beaches round out the attractive stretch of ocean, and you'll find notable ethnic cuisine throughout the city, a testament to its diverse population. Many visitors find the pace of Long Beach more relaxed than that of Los Angeles, though some blighted areas do remain. Plan a trip to United States easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
