If you are like me and don't like going to malls, anything you would normally find in a mall can also be found in the assorted shops of Belmont Shore on 2nd street. Downtown Long Beach has a great mix of vintage shops, galleries and interesting novelty shops along with a Z Gallery (a personal favorite of mine) Walmart and a new outdoor mall. The Marina Pacific Shopping Center and The Marketplace on PCH and 2nd Street have wonderful boutiques, restaurants, movie theaters. We are a short drive to South Coast Plaza, one of the finest shopping centers in Southern California. Or a short drive inland to discount outlet stores. Everything you need is right here.
