Visit Long Beach, CA.

The sightseeing can begin as soon as you deplane at Long Beach Airport if you’re a fan of Art Deco architecture. One of the terminals is a historical landmark boasting the Streamline Moderne style. You may be too excited to begin your SoCal visit, so you can always check out more of the airport before your departure flight. Grab your rental car, hail a taxi, or call a rideshare to begin your Los Angeles area adventure.

Long Beach, CA, is the birthplace of dozens of bands, and it’s no wonder—who wouldn’t be inspired by this vibrant coastal town? Culture and artistry abound in the area, from the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra to the East Village Arts District. Spending an afternoon exploring the East Village will give you a taste of one of the city’s most eclectic neighborhoods, full of street art, galleries, independent boutiques, and unique dining options. If you’re in Long Beach, CA, during the weekend, join one of the East Village’s 2nd Saturday Art Walks to get the best of what the neighborhood has to offer from a local guide.

For a unique outing that works as well for families as it does for groups of friends or a romantic excursion, head to the neighborhood of Naples for a gondola ride. Yes, you read that right: Built on three islands in the Alamitos Bay, Naples has a series of canals and offers one of the only opportunities for a gondola ride in the Western U.S. If you are more interested in hitting the open road, Long Beach, CA, is an ideal place to start a scenic drive along the Pacific Coast Highway. Rent yourself a convertible, put the top down, and crank some surf rock. Whether you choose to head up or down the coast, you won’t be disappointed with the view.
