May

May is a prime time to visit Long Beach: The weather isn't too hot, and the waterfront isn't too crowded. If you plan your trip for this month, you'll see there are many events in store, including one of the state's largest pride parades.

Key Events:

June-August

The summer months bring with them warm temperatures, and many festivals. However, this is a popular time for tourism, which can mean higher hotel rates and more crowded public spaces. Not to mention, a phenomenon locals call "June Gloom" means you may experience overcast weather during your June visit.

Key Events:

September

The start of fall is another great time to visit this seaside city. The weather is still warm from the summer, but public places tend to be less crowded during September.

Key Events:

October-April

One major perk of Southern California is its moderate temperatures year-round. While other U.S. cities freeze over in the winter months, Long Beach remains a popular destination with sunny weather and temperatures hovering in the high 60s and low 70s. Not to mention, everything will be a little less crowded than in the summer.
