Long Beach, nicknamed The City by the Sea, is on the westernmost barrier island on the South Shore. The city is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the south and Reynolds Channel along the other three compass points. The actual long beach is a 3.5-mile stretch of beautiful ocean beach, with a long, bike-friendly boardwalk. The city has its own bike share program, offering low-cost beach cruiser style bikes perfect for short jaunts on the at fl roads and boardwalk. The strange mixture of Mediterranean-style buildings and condominiums is due to the controversial developer of Long Beach, who used restrictive ordinances to shape the character of the area.
