Santa Claus visits Long Beach's Marketplace each weekend before Christmas...and his jovial manner, stylish demeanor, and listening ear allows children to share. Under the shade of the Southern California palms, just minutes from the Trees in the Bay, you'll find Santa Claus at Marketplace Long Beach.


If you're looking for weekend entertainment, get the kids out for some fresh air to visit Santa during December. Entertaining music, flowing fountains with birds gliding aimlessly in symphony, and lots of great restaurants, movies and even a Christmas tree lot next door with kiddie train rides makes for a seasonal celebration of its own at the Marketplace in Long Beach.


Located across the street from Mimi's and just a few miles from the Belmont Shore holiday Trees in the Bay, Marketplace Long Beach offers a festive atmosphere throughout the mall. A tall tree stands in the center of the plaza, where Santa's red hut sits, and Santa greets kids with a merry, ho-ho-ho.


The mall features entertainment such as concerts throughout the year, but during the holidays you may find strolling musicians in toy soldier costumes, colorful carolers singing Christmas favorites, and store windows decorated with silver ornaments that shine. It's just one more reason to love Long Beach, one of our favorite Southern California events destinations.


Where to stay: There are over 20 Long Beach Hotels, with several affordable properties such as Best Western nearby.


Where to eat:  The restaurants you'll find and enjoy at the Marketplace include El Torito, Ruby's Diner, Claim Jumper and many more


What else?  Several great stores at the mall include Trader Joe's, BevMO, Woof & Warp, plus a bakery, frozen yoghurt and many others.


Getting there: Marketplace Long Beach is located on Pacific Coast Highway at the intersection of Westminster Blvd./2nd Street.
