Need some new fun ideas to stay sane during COVID. We made a small list of fun things you can still do while everything is on lockdown in Long Beach
Downtown Long Beach
Downtown Long Beach can be kind of crowded at times, but we put it at the top of the list because there are endless things to do outside in DTLB. There is plenty of takout to eat, designated walking loops and also the waterfront is right down the street.
Signal Hill Hilltop Park
Hilltop Park is one of the most iconic parks in Long Beach because of it’s panoramic views of Long Beach and its surrounding cities. The Park has a vast grass lawn for picnics, benches for sitting and even BBQ pits for grilling. Parking is free too!
Paddle Board or Kayak
If you are the adventurous type and the summer heat is calling your name then it might be a good idea to take your date outside and rent a paddleboard or a kayak and swim around the Belmont Shore in Long Beach. Whether you stay around the beach or wander around the canals you are sure to have a blast.
Long Beach Waterfront Sunset Stroll
The Long Beach Waterfront is a picture perfect location for a sunset stroll. You can start by the Pine Street Pier and work your way around the Long Beach Lighthouse and the Queen Mary. There is plenty of parking the Pine Avenue parking structures or you can take a RideYellow and get dropped off right at the waterfront.
To top it off there is plenty of space to keep socially distant from others who also stroll the waterfront.
2nd Street Boutique Shopping
2nd street is famous for its local shops both big and small. Spanning up and down 2nd street in the Belmont Shore there are many stores and boutiques that have interesting things for sale that would make a window shopping date a lot of fun! Now that small busienss are closing from COVID it is more important than ever to support your local small shops.
