FREE Things To Do in Long Beach This Week…
Living in Southern California, it’s not often that we can find something fun to do for free, or even cheap for that matter. However, the city of Long Beach has some great options for those looking to have a night out without breaking the bank.
Night At The Museum…
The Long Beach Museum of Art is FREE on Thursday evenings, 5-8pm and all day Friday – thanks to the L.A. Arts Commission. Save the cost of admission on Fridays and spend the money on lunch at Claire’s at the Museum (there’s a great view!)
To make it an evening on Thursday, Claire’s at the Museum offers a Happy Hour – “Claire’s is open from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. for Happy Hour. Enjoy $5 Beer and Wine and delicious appetizers and desserts at amazing prices. Watch the Port of Long Beach, Queen Mary and Thumb Islands light up after the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean.”
En La Noche, Thursday, January 19 at MOLAA (Museum of Latin American Art). The En La Noche events are a fun way to explore the museum during the evening, with food, tastings, drinks, and live music – what’s not to love?
From the MOLAA website : “Enjoy a self- guided tour of MEX/LA, complimentary tequila tasting, mixes by DJ Cornejo and a performance by Akwid”. En La Noche is every third Thursday from 6-10pm.
Mex/LA : “Mexican” Modernism(s) in Los Angeles 1930-1985 looks like a fascinating exhibition, and it will be at MOLAA until February 5th.
En La Noche at MOLAA isn’t free for everyone, but it is free for members plus one guest, and residents of the 1st District (Downtown) can attend for free; they just need to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and use En la Noche as the Subject line. Otherwise, it’s $10 admission for the general public – not too shabby.
Looking for a place you can bring the kids for FREE?
For those seeking a family friendly evening out, and for those that aren’t, The Aquarium of the Pacific has brought back the popular Shark Lagoon Nights. Guests enjoy live music and can “get up close with the ocean’s ultimate predators at the Aquarium of the Pacific for FREE during Shark Lagoon Nights. Guests will have the opportunity to touch bamboo sharks and see large sharks such as sandtigers as well as rays in the Aquarium’s Shark Lagoon.”
Check out the Aquarium of the Pacific website for a list of Shark Lagoon nights. I’ve been to a few of these nights in the past, and we’ve always had a good time.
This was just a few ideas for inexpensive outings in Long Beach. There will be many more coming up during the year, so I’ll keep you posted. Have Fun!
