Our Top Summer Activities in Long Beach

Summer is in full swing and there’s plenty to do here in Long Beach! Caravana Furniture has rounded up our favorite summer activities that are perfect for both locals and out-of-towners. From waterbikes to museums and everything in between, if there’s something about Long Beach you should know, it’s that we love to have fun in the sun.

Long Beach Antique Market

You can find the Long Beach Antique Market every third Sunday of the month at Long Beach Veterans Stadium. This impressive flea market is the place to go to find vintage treasures and oddities. Upcoming dates include August 15th and September 19th. The antique market is open from 5:30 am until 2 pm. Parking is free and admission is $8 ( or $12 before 6:30 am).

Long Beach Waterbikes

Cooldown and feel the ocean breeze on a waterbike. This is exactly what it sounds like; riding a bike on the water! Located at 164 N. Marina Dr, you can choose to have a ride in the daytime, or at night! The Long Beach waterbikes are open 7 days a week from 12 pm to 7 pm by reservation only. Prices range from $25 to $30.

Long Beach Museum of Art

This one is for all art lovers! Although relatively small compared to other museums you can find in LA county, the Long Beach Museum of art offers an intimate viewing experience. Best of all, it’s right next to the beach so make sure to enjoy the view. Exhibits change from time to time (you can see all of the current exhibits here). The Long Beach Museum of Art is located at 300 E Ocean Boulevard. Advanced tickets are required and can be purchased online.

El Dorado Nature Center

Long Beach, for the most part, is a concrete jungle. But what if we told you that a green oasis is only minutes away? Well, folks, there is! And it’s called the El Dorado Nature Center. At 105 acres, this place is a sanctuary for wildlife and plants. You can find walking trails ( open from Tuesday-Sunday from 8 am to 5 pm) and a museum that is open Tuesday-Sunday from 8:30 am to 4 pm. Vehicles have to pay an entrance fee but pedestrians and cyclists do not. The El Dorado Nature Center is located at 7550 E Spring Street. To learn more, make sure to check out their website.

The beauty of Long Beach is that there’s something for everyone. From the ocean to greenery and more, Long Beach has it all. The truth is, any of these activities can be done year-round but of course, there’s no better season than Summer (at least in our opinion!). Don’t forget we are also located in Downtown Long Beach if you’re looking to get new furniture anytime soon!
