What do you have planned for Long Beach New Year’s Eve 2018 on December 31st? Are you staying home or going out enjoying great events in Long Beach, Seal Beach or Huntington Beach? Do you like to watch the firework shows on television, your cell phone or in person?
What are the Long Beach New Year’s Eve Events 2018?
Over the years, I have gone out many times to different events around southern California. Battling traffic. Lines of people and so on.
Nowadays, I just leave the house about 11:45 pm and walk out to the Belmont Pier in Long Beach and watch the fireworks show from the Queen Mary at midnight. Thousands of people make this famous walk to the beach or pier.
