If you love California Craftsman bungalows, you will see hundreds of them in the charming Belmont Heights neighborhood of Long Beach.  Many people consider Belmont Heights to be among the most desirable in Long Beach.  It is adjacent to the beach without being inundated with tourists in summer.

In the early 20th Century Long Beach was a destination resort, a place to escape the summer heat of Los Angeles.  Some homes in the now affluent Belmont Heights and adjacent neighborhoods were originally built as summer cottages.  By the 1920s homes in Belmont Heights and nearby neighborhoods began to be built as permanent year 'round residences. 

Many of the homes are in the California Craftsman Bungalow style.  This area became what many call "Bungalow Heaven" because it has the most Craftsman bungalow style homes of any area of Long Beach.  You will also find Spanish Revival and Mediterranean homes as well as charming cottage style houses along the tree-lined streets in Belmont Heights.  

There are also low-rise condos throughout the Heights, as well as rental apartments in Spanish Revival style.

Belmont Heights is less congested and significantly quieter than Belmont Shore or Naples Island and within a few minutes walk to the beach. 

A few blocks to the west of Belmont Heights is the charming, small neighborhood of Carroll Park.  You can learn more about Carroll Park bungalows on this website.   Yet another neighborhood with bungalows is Rose Park Historic District.

Belmont Shore stops at Broadway where the narrow Bluff Park neighborhood begins.  In Bluff Park estate size homes are significantly  grander and more architecturally distinguished.  You can see Bluff Park homes on this site. 

And for a diversion to to Cal State Long Beach to spend some quiet time in a charming Japanese Garden.
