Long Beach Airport attractions and Travel Tips

Car Rental at Long Beach Airport

Long Beach, also known as the "beach with benefits" to locals, is one of Southern California's most beloved port cities. Offering a healthy — and relaxing — mix of culture, cuisine, sand, and sun, Long Beach Airport car rentals are a great place to start your Californian adventure. The possibilities by car in Long Beach are endless, from quick jaunts around the city to thrilling scenic drives along the Pacific Coast’s sea-hugging highway.

Main attractions from Long Beach Airport

Long Beach is just three miles from downtown by swift road connection when you rent a car from Long Beach Airport, making this an ideal pick-up point. Home to one of California's best aquariums, Aquarium of the Pacific, this is by far Long Beach's most alluring tourist experience. Expect an interactive introduction to the Pacific Ocean's sea life with well-recreated ocean habitats. There's another much smaller aquarium here too, Cabrillo Marin Aquarium, which offers a nostalgic, low-tech experience of the sea.

No trip to Long Beach is complete without a visit to one of several spectacular ship museums. The premier of these attractions is the Queen Mary, an old luxury liner, which is both larger and more dignified than the Titanic. This supposedly haunted ship is a must-see for fans of dapper transatlantic travel. Another must-visit museum is the Battleship Iowa, a Second World War battleship moored in San Pedro Bay, which can be visited with combined tickets for both Queen Mary and the Aquarium of the Pacific. Other noted attractions with a military history include the Korean Friendship Bell and Fort MacArthur Military Museum.

Looking for a relaxing view of Long Beach at sunset? Experience a slice of Italy in California with a Naples Gondola Ride along hidden canals. There’s parking on the waterfront for your cheap rental car from Long Beach Airport. 

The best dining options with a rental car from Long Beach Airport

Long Beach offers a vibrant mix of pan-European and American staples, including some of California's best Italian, Greek, and Spanish food. You should definitely try the local catch of the day and dine at one of the many fantastic seafood restaurants. The waterfront contains mostly restaurant chains, but you'll find a host of fine independent dining options on Pine Avenue and Belmont Shore's 2nd Avenue. Vegan and organic fare can be found in Retro Row and East Village Arts District.

Beaches and districts to visit in Long Beach

Long Beach is unsurprisingly a mecca for beachgoers. The most famous are Long Beach City Beach, Alamitos Beach, Belmont Shore, and Mother's Beach. All are very accessible and conveniently close to Long Beach’s downtown area, but for something a little quieter, you can take your cheap car rental from Long Beach Airport to the charming Sunset Beach in Seal Beach for a sleepier pace of life. When it comes to Long Beach’s districts, two of the most fun to visit are Retro Row, a great place for art and fashion lovers, and Belmont Shore, Long Beach's surfing hot spot.
