Downtown Long Beach is made up of five business districts – the waterfront, the West Gateway, the East Village Arts District, the Pine Avenue and Promenade area, and North Pine –representing different hotbeds of business activity with unique clusters of industries, shops and restaurants, each boasting a distinct vibe and energy.
The downtown waterfront is perhaps the most iconic area of Downtown Long Beach, as it is home to the city’s most widely recognized sites and attractions. The heart of the city’s hospitality and tourism industry, the waterfront is home to the historic RMS Queen Mary, a floating museum, hotel and attraction, as well as the Aquarium of the Pacific, Southern California’s largest aquarium.
Also on the water are the retail areas of Shoreline Village, a boardwalk featuring tourist-centric shops and restaurants, and The Pike Outlets, a shopping center boasting national brands such as H&M and Nike, national and local restaurants, and a Cinemark move theater.
