District 3 is the center of a lot of water activities in Long Beach. Whether it be a romantic Gondola Getaway date with a loved one. If your loved one is a pup, I would definitely recommend taking them for a nice day out in the sun at Rosie’s dog beach. Another great activity to do on Long Beach waters is gather some friends or family and plan a couple hours on the water with London Boat Rentals.

A night out in the Second District is asking for a fun time! On the border of the district off of Anaheim you will find The Bamboo Club, a neighborhood favorite. The Bamboo Club is a popular bar in Long Beach, giving you everything you’d want out of a tiki bar! District two is known for its nightlife all along 2nd Street, with over 5 bars to choose from it is the best place to bar hop. On the other side of its border is Ballast Point. Ballast Point is one of the best places in town to grab a beer and watch the sunset over the water.
Second street is where to be for all things food. If you’re indecisive like myself you will definitely have a hard time picking something to eat on Second Street. From Italian to sushi the options are endless. A local favorite for a delicious breakfast is the wonderful Let’s Yolk About It! If you are craving a breakfast burrito, Lets Yolk About It is the place to be. Another favorite little ways away from the business of Second Street is Enrique’s Mexican Restaurant, it is an authentic Jalisco style Mexican Restaurant that has been serving the neighborhood since 2001.
