Long Beach--One of the most fun events
during the winter holidays at the beaches in California is taking a
boat ride past the decorated mansions in the California harbors. The
good news is that there are plenty of rides to enjoy, especially in
Having tackled and taken the
holiday cruises in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and San Diego,
the Naples Bay (actually called
Alamitos Bay) in Long Beach provided a special fascination.
Designed after an Italian city, Naples enjoys canals with Italian
names, and a charm all its own. Each Christmas the city assembles
light displays in the bay with platform trees decorated with
lights that give the effect of Christmas trees standing in the
water, shining through the night.
One way to view this lovely
spectacle is by Naples Gondolas from Gondola Getaway. Another
cheaper method of getting out amongst the lighted displays is by
taking a Star Party Cruise boat tour offered each year from December
1 to the weekend after Christmas. For my family, the weekend after
Christmas offered the ideal time to continue enjoying the beauty of
the bay, and its holiday decor. While the boat ride doesn't go
Naples canals, it still offers intimacy and beauty only seen and
experienced from a boat.
Take the family to see the
beautifully decorated homes and boats of Naples Island. Enjoy a
one-hour cruise around Naples Island on our beautiful 140 passenger
Party Boat, The Star. Offering a cash bar with beer, wine, cocktails
and snacks for kids, there's also some sweets, cocoa and foods to
munch on for adults. Christmas Cruise departs from Alamitos
Bay Landing, 140 Marina Dr., Long Beach, CA 90803.
