Quick Facts


The Queen Mary - Larger than the Titanic, The Queen Mary allows tourists to take a self-guided tour of the bridge, engine rooms and officers' quarters, while guided tours visit areas of the ship which are otherwise inaccessible. The boat has been turned into a hotel, and features several restaurants, shops and a wedding chapel.

Naples Island - Naples Island in Long Beach, located in the middle of Alamitos Bay, was the brainchild of Arthur Parson, who wanted to create a romantic spot that resembled Italy. He dug canals and built cozy cottage homes on the water. There is a park in the center of the island and a small beach encircling most of it. If you miss Italy or want a little romance in your life, visit this spot for a day.

The El Dorado Regional Park - The El Dorado Regional Park is a sprawling park in Long Beach. It was first opened in 1955, and ever since it has been attracting nature lovers who want to get away from the city that lies just outside the park.
