As one of the world's busiest seaports, Long Beach boasts a thriving maritime industry. As a result, the town also has plenty of waterfront restaurants, shops, and beaches. One of the most popular is Alamitos Beach, which sits within walking distance of the downtown area. Lined with condos, apartments, and high-rise buildings, this spot can get busy during the summer months, but it’s still the ideal choice for those who enjoy a beachside bike ride. Alamitos has an impressive 6-mile bike path that runs from the Shoreline Village shopping center to Alamitos Bay. When you’re done with your ride, you can also visit nearby attractions such as the Aquarium of the Pacific and the Queen Mary.
