With an incredible 345 sun soaked days per year, southern California really is the place to be pretty much anytime you like.
If you’re looking to escape harsh winds, cold mornings or rain then make your next winter vacation a sunny affair, and book a room at the Miyako Hybrid Hotel, Torrance. You’ll be within easy reach of the world famous Long Beach, but you won’t have the crowded streets or the stresses of city life- plus you’ll be right near the best restaurants in Torrance.
Let’s take a look at what you and the family can expect to find at the amazing Long Beach- just make sure you fill up on the amazing Miyako Hybrid Hotel breakfast before leaving for the day!
The Aquarium of the Pacific
With over 11,000 animals, from over 50 species displayed in indoor and outdoor areas this really is a fun day out for the whole family.
Watch the sharks swim ominously in the Shark Lagoon, feed the penguins and interact with sea life like never before at the interactive pools- you can even feed the friendly Australian Lorikeets!
Quite literally just outside the aquarium doors you’ll find a little pier where you can climb aboard a harbor cruise.
Learn about the fascinating history of the area, see the sights and relax in the sunshine as you are chaperoned around this beautiful area- you may even see some wildlife in its natural habitat.
The Shoreline Village
If you’re looking for souvenirs, a spot of lunch or just after a bit of window shopping; then this is the place for you.
A collection of quaint and colorful houses that make up the harbor’s retail area is a great place to spend some time with the kids. There is a carousel, an arcade and some great toy shops- and after all that you can grab some excellent lunch!
Go for a Bike Ride
Hiring bikes is perhaps the best way to see the entire area- and thanks to the coastal boardwalk and bike friendly trails, you can literally go for miles.
There is a wide range of bikes to choose from and all ability levels are catered for, so just get out there and explore the seafront on two wheels!
Hit the Beach
Of course, what could be a better way to enjoy the coastal Long Beach than by actually enjoying the beach?
The white sands stretch for miles meaning there is plenty of space for everyone, and the surf rolls in consistently making it a great place for the kids to play in the shallows.

Make the most of your next family holiday and explore one of the world’s most famous coastal towns from the comfort and tranquility of the nearby Miyako Hybrid Hotel- home to the best Torrance honeymoon suite.
