3 Perfect Places to Picnic in Long Beach CA
As parks and beaches remain open, many residents are enjoying the outdoors with daily exercise, however, it is the perfect place to also enjoy a nice picnic lunch or dinner. The best part about picnicking is that you have a huge space to work with so you can easily find a secluded area to take in the views and enjoy your meal.
While the stretches of sandy beaches are always a great option to choose for picnics, there are three parks that stand out among the rest as great places to bring your basket and set up a meal. Unfortunately, as COVID numbers continue to rise, it is important to remember to keep your distance and plan your picnic around a time where the park may not be as busy. For example, a Thursday evening picnic may be more serene, peaceful, and less crowded than a Friday.
