I’m always on the lookout for new things to do and places to visit. Most recently, I visited one of Orange County’s newest shopping destinations, 2nd & PCH.
Located in Long Beach on 2nd street and PCH as it’s name indicates, this retail center is a hip new spot to shop and dine. Since the shopping center just recently opened, not all the retail and dining spots have finished their installations. However, I imagine that they will be by summer 2020. In general, this center is a great place for people of all ages to hang out, grab a bite to eat, and shop! If you’re looking for things to do in Long Beach, checking out 2nd & PCH is a must!

Make sure to wear a cute outfit when you visit because the entire center is Instagrammable with many murals!!
Where to Eat
While I have not eaten at any of the places at 2nd & PCH yet, based on what I’ve heard from friends, stopping at Ola Mexican Kitchen is a must! The same can be said about Tocaya Organica once it opens. The center also features a Shake Shack among many other yummy places!
Where to Drink
While it’s not open yet, The Bunglow will open its third location at 2nd & PCH. I absolutely love the Huntington Beach location at Pacific City and I’ve heard great things about the Santa Monica location. Therefore, I’m sure this location will also have a fun, beach vibe! At The Bungalow, my go-to drink is a sangria. It’s SO good!!
Where to Shop
While all the retailers at 2nd & PCH are great, some of my favorites include Sephora, Urban Outfitters, lululemon, Nike by Long Beach, gorjana, Free People, and Anthropologie. Some of these are not quite open yet, but will be soon! Every store I walked into was absolutely gorgeous!
Monday – Saturday: 10am to 9pm

Address + Parking
When I visited, the parking was still complimentary. However, based on how the parking structure is ticketed, it’s clear that in the future it will be paid parking only aside from a small line of spots on the outside of the center.
