Holidays to Long Beach​

Love the beach? Like the big-city bustle? Looking for plenty of things to see and do? Then Long Beach holidays might be just what you're looking for - so take a long, hard look.

Less than 25 miles south of Downtown Los Angeles, Long Beach is the perfect California cocktail of top-class attractions mixed up with a big stretch of sand. Families will thrive on the action at the beach and the bustling harbour; can't-sit-still types can try out some watersports; and couples can get smoochy on a sunset gondola ride through the canals of Naples Island.

Long Beach is known for its harbour, and it's a picturesque spot, with gently bobbing boats and the entire scene dominated by the monumental Queen Mary liner - permanently moored here and a must-see on Long Beach holidays. There's plenty of cruises that sail from here into surrounding waters, and even the chance to explore them for yourself in an electric 'Duffy' boat. There's also the quirky shops and restaurants of Shoreline Village to enjoy.

Down at the ocean front, one stretch of soft white sand gives way to another, and each has its own personality. At Alamitos Beach, the hi-rises of Downtown make for a dramatic backdrop; at Junipero Beach the buildings give way to a bluff; Belmont Shore has a fishing pier; Peninsula is perfect for kiteboarders and windsurfers; and Mothers' Beach offers shallow swimming for kids, plus a playground.

Heading into the city, there's good shopping, and art fans shouldn't miss the Museum of Latin American Art. Nor should night-owls miss sampling the Long Beach night-life - especially the live music clubs on Pine Avenue. Finish it all off with a night-cap at the Sky Room at the old Breakers Hotel, complete with a 360-degree view of the city.​

The Queen Mary

The Queen MaryThis superb Art Deco survivor of the days when ocean liners ruled the waves is simply colossal at over 310 metres long. Launched in 1934, the ship has a fascinating history both as a veteran of 1001 transatlantic crossings and as a troop ship during World War 2. Walk its long teak decks; see the view from the bridge; marvel at its vast engine rooms; even eat on board or enjoy a cocktail.

Catalina Island

A trip on the ferry to Catalina Island is a must on Long Beach. This lovely unspoilt spot has canyons, coves and pristine beaches, as well as fantastic diving and snorkelling in its crystal waters. Its delightful main town, Avalon, is a feast for the eyes with painted bungalows and yachts moored in Crescent Bay.

Aquarium of the Pacific

With over 11,000 sea creatures, including sharks, octopuses, penguins and sea dragons, this vast aquarium is one of the USA's largest. It recreates three distinct Pacific habitats, from warm through
to cold, as well as tropical regions - even a barrier reef. Giant tanks let you see the animals up close and you can even touch some of the sharks at Shark Lagoon.

Rancho Los Alamitos

Step back in time at one of the oldest surviving dwellings in Southern California - an elegant 18-room ranch house built around 1800. It sits atop a hill surrounded by 7.5 acres of what was once a 28,500-acre cattle ranch. Learn about the history of the area and stroll in lush gardens studded with towering Moreton Bay fig trees.

Retro Row

For a different kind of shopping experience head to Retro Row along Fourth Street. It's famed for its boutiques selling second-hand and vintage clothing, as well as stores stacked with retro furniture and oddities from yesteryear.
