Long Beach is a neat little self contained city. We have more than thirty restaurants, dozens of hopping bars, a nice shopping district and several gyms. The City runs a public indoor heated pool and recreation center.
Probably the nicest feature on all but the coldest days is our sunny boardwalk, where you can stroll, jog or bike ride. Great place to meet folks all year 'round.
Of course, you can hop a train and in 48 minutes be in Times Square. When you get home, you'll be back to the peace and quiet of the seashore.
