Long Beach is in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, but has a large population (475,000 people). Therefore, Long Beach gets its own dedicated page with VEBO. Long Beach is a blend between the sophistication of a big city and the laid-back atmosphere of a beachside town.
  • THE BEACHES

    Long Beach has a diversity of beach options. The main beach is City Beach, which is on Ocean Boulevard. It is popular for beaching out, biking, and skating. Another great option is Rosie’s Dog Beach, which is an off-leash dog park on the beach.

  • DINING

    From casual to fine-dining, Long Beach has some fantastic restaurants. Long Beach has over 100 restaurants in an 8-block radius. One of the most famous is Beachwood BBQ & Brewing. For a more formal dining experience, check out The Sky Room, located 14 floors up with great food and views to match.

  • ACCESSIBILITY

    Long Beach is centrally located to a lot of great activities in southern California. Within an hour’s drive, you can reach Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Santa Monica. Long Beach also has year-round boat service to Catalina.

THE WEATHER
  • Winter is the slow season as the weather is a little cooler with highs in the upper-60s (a little too cool for beach days).

  • Late spring is perfect for catching beach weather while avoiding the crowds.

  • Summer is the busy time of the year for much of LA and the parks. The weather is nice throughout the year, so you might avoid the crowds and skip summer.

  • Like late spring, early fall offers weather that nearly matches the summer, with a fraction of the crowd size.
