We had no choice, when were taken here on a bus from the Princess Cruise dock. We had to wait about three hours to board our ship because of a previous cruises's noro virus outbreak. The weather was rainy, and we found The Auld Dubliner Pub for a wonderful lunch. There is also a Bubba Gump's. The only store of... More

Beautiful and well thought out, loved the Rainbow Harbor and lights throughout the area. Great for a fun vacation or a quick getaway weekend.

You have a wide variety of restaurants and shops. Easy parking with valet service. Close to Shoreline and Boardwalk.

Walking around here was awful. Skateboarders and bikers are all over the place and extremely rude. They ride where they want and don't get in their way. Saw one almost knock over an elderly man with no apology just laughing. Not impressed at all with this area. Shops are all the same as anywhere else. Not worth wasting anytime here.

While this shopping center was within easy reach of our hotel, there's nothing special to see. It's basically a mid-sized shopping center with chain retailers like Hot Topic, Gap, Starbucks, etc. There is a cool old ferris wheel you can ride nearby, but the hours vary widely. The ride is $3 per person, so bring cash if you want to... More

With shops, restaurants, movie theaters and access to the aquarium, a waterfront walk, boat tours and trips to the Queen Mary, this area has something to offer just about everyone. Although parking could be challenging, once you've handled that, you could easily spend a day here.

Small shopping venue -- lots of clothes shops (my favorite was Columbia), movie theatre, restaurants, and at this time of year -- an outdoor ice skating rink. There is a public parking structure behind the Long Beach Aquarium. If you combine it with a visit, parking all day is $8. Or if you're in a nearby hotel (my husband and... More

I like the Pike area. Now there are some outlet stores to add to the many restaurants nearby. Nike, Converse, H&M, Forever 21, Columbia, The Gap, Sunglass hut, Hot Topic, Perfume store, Starbucks, etc... we need more shops though, like Sephora, MAC, Macy's, Nordstrom,....how about Old Navy, Off 5th, Nordstrom Rack? The waterfront area is also very nice, long boardwalk... More
