10 Instagram Worthy Spots in Long Beach
Do it for the 'gram!
1. Queen Mary
2. Aquarium of the Pacific
3. Rainbow Harbor — Rainbow Lagoon
4. Lions Lighthouse for Sight - Shoreline Village
We lumped them together because you can actually take really amazing photos of the lighthouse from Shoreline Village & vice versa. Shoreline Village is a must-see when you’re in town, full of fun shops and restaurants housed in adorable colorful buildings along the water. Grab an ice cream cone, funnel cake, crazy hat or any other prop & strike your signature pose in front of one of the many technicolor backdrops! Then turn your camera to the lighthouse just as the sun rays begin to shine behind it. This is true Instagram gold – we wouldn’t lie.
5. Ferris Wheel at the Pike Outlets
6. Pow! Wow! Murals
7. Beach - Bike Path
8. Sunset from Ballast Point - Boathouse on the Bay
Ballast Point and Boathouse on the Bay possibly have the best waterfront sunset views in the whole city. Situated at the edge of Alamitos Bay where the channel leads out to the Ocean. this is the end-all-be-all location for your official Long Beach sunset photo-opp. Whether you decide to grab a beer and head up to Ballast Point's rooftop patio or gracefully sip wine & sway to the live music at Boathouse on the Bay, you really can’t go wrong.
9. Gondola Getaway
