Things to do This 4th of July in Long Beach

The Fourth of July is such a great holiday, isn’t it?! Usually, it’s full of great weather, BBQ, ice cold drinks, time with friends and family, and a night sky lit up by fireworks.  It’s definitely my favorite holiday, and if it’s not yours too then “you can’t sit with us” (…just kidding)!  Now most of us know that Long Beach is full of events, especially in the summer, and true to form, the city offers tons of things to do on this patriotic holiday.  Here is a list that I have gathered for you.

Now, I know that this event actually happens on July 3rd, but I just had to include it! The Big Bang on the Bay is a fun place to start your early celebration and enjoy music, food, and fireworks.  


If you make it to any one of these events, please share photos or stories of your time there!
