Destination guide

Experience Long Beach in vacation home rentals

For blond sandy beaches, historic ships, and a wealth of marine life, look no further than Southern California's Long Beach for your next vacation.

After dark, head down to the hip East Village and sample some good old Californian nightlife.

Things to do

Long (Beach) live the Queen Mary

Once a world-class ocean liner, the Queen Mary has been an iconic sight in Long Beach since she was docked here in 1967. Decked out in all her 1930s finery, the Queen Mary is now a hotel and tourist attraction. There are various guided tours on offer, or really push the boat out (excuse the pun) and book dinner onboard. If you prefer to explore life beneath the ocean, head to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Rainbow Harbor. Come face-to-fin with sharks, penguins, and even otters in this state-of-the-art aquarium.


Live long and prosper on Long Beach

As the name may suggest, life in Long Beach is centered around the miles and miles of blond sands the city gets its name from. Grab a picnic and settle down for a day on the beach. Or book a dolphin or whale spotting cruise from the harbor and make a day of it. It's also the launching point for boat trips to Catalina Island and Naples Island. In the summer, Long Beach is awash with festivals and events, while in winter, it's all about visiting the city's popular museums and aquarium.


Long Beach says boo to June Gloom

Southern California doesn't do badly in the weather stakes. Famous for its almost-year round sunshine and mild, Mediterranean climate, in the summer, Long Beach sees average temperatures around 70-80 degrees. It's the peak time to visit the city, and the best Long Beach vacation rentals tend to get booked up in advance. Spring and fall are equally pleasant times to visit, although beware of June Gloom, when it can get a little gray. In winter, the skies are still bright, but the temperature drops a little to below 60 degrees, so a light jacket is often needed.

Natural features

Mind the Gap—visit Long Beach's nature reserve

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Long Beach is a sprawling coastal city, a 24-mile drive south of downtown Los Angeles. From the beach, it's short 5-minute drive north to the Dominguez Gap Wetlands, a small urban nature reserve along the Los Angeles River. It has a variety of easy walking trails, many pathed and signposted, where you can see a wealth of birdlife and wildflowers. The wetlands have also become a popular with migratory sea birds drawn to its lush wetlands.
