Long Beach CA

IMG_0084F

Long Beach boasts a busy cruise ship port, with a wide variety of shopping and restaurants close by. Make sure you visit The RMS Queen Mary where it is moored as a fully functional Hotel. It’s a fun place to stay or just to go take a tour. If you visit around Halloween you can also go Ghost hunting. The Pacific Aquarium is another noteworthy place to visit, go see Sharks, Penguins and other sea creatures, check out the Jellyfish exhibit and then go eat a cooked one at the cafe. Use the Aqualink where they will shuttle you around the shoreline. Catch the Catalina Express for a great Day trip to Catalina Island.
