The town of Long Beach is located on the 28-mile Long Beach Peninsula. This family friendly community, features carnival rides, a full calendar of annual festivals, kite shops, video arcades, the World Kite Museum & Hall of Fame, bumper cars, and many more family-oriented activities.
In summer, the town provides clowns, face-painting and other sidewalk entertainment for visitors, from juggling clowns to Mother Goose and lots of kid-friendly crafts and activities, as well as horse-drawn wagon rides.
Pristine ocean beaches lie alongside the town and visitors stroll the dunes on a popular boardwalk. Crossing beneath the Boardwalk is the 8.1-mile long Discovery Trail, which travels through dunes from north Long Beach into Ilwaco. Lewis & Clark reached the Pacific Ocean here and the trail is one of many monuments to them throughout the town.
