Getting Country in the LBC

We’ve got the beach and we’ve got the sunshine; we’ve also got boots, barns, and biscuits. Don’t let the city slicker vibes fool you–Long Beach is a little bit country. And folks will be able to celebrate all things twangy at the Coastal Country Jam in Long Beach this fall, featuring some of the biggest stars in country music. Of course, you don’t have to wait for the show to get your boots scootin’. Whether dancing, shopping or eating, here are places around town where you can Go Country!

You will definitely need the proper country outfit for the concert. Village Hat Shop (429-A Shoreline Village Dr) is walking distance from the concert venue and stocks a wide variety of cowboy hats, from a more casual straw hat to genuine Stetsons. If your closet is lacking in western wear, you can stock up on denim, cowboy hats, and western shirts, as well as vintage clothing, at The Hangout (2122 E 4th St) on Retro Row.



Take the kids to El Dorado Frontier (7550 E Spring St), an amusement park inside El Dorado East Regional Park reminiscent of a California Gold Rush mining town. You can practice your prospector skills at the Panning for Goldie’s Treasures attraction and discover treasures like rose quartz, pyrite, and amazonite. General admission includes unlimited rides on the historic train ride, carousel, and mine buggies.
