There are several different aspects that entail the “perfect vacation” in most travelers’ minds. The main aspects of choice, however, are entertainment, a beach, and beautiful landscapes. Most vacationers usually alternate between each one over the years, filling their vacation wants and needs with different trips. One year the family might go to the beach, the next a beautiful scenic location, and the next the site famous for its’ entertainment selection. In Long Beach California, however, you can get all three in one, along with fine dining and multiple other attractions.
This comes in the form of the Long Beach Jazz Festival. This great event has been ongoing for over twenty years, making it a mainstay festival in Long Beach. Each year visitors come from all over the world to have their auditory senses romanced by some of the most talented Jazz performers in the business.
Usually held around mid-summer, the Long Beach Jazz Festival has played host to such famed Jazz names as Gerald Albright, Warren hill, the Gerald Wilson Orchestra, Rick Braun, Peter White, Jody Watley, Ronnie Laws, and Barbara Morrison, to name a very select few. Each year the festival has between thirty and forty performers.
The Long Beach Jazz Festival is always held in the same location, a emerald hued grass hillside overlooking a magnificent seaside lagoon. The view alone is worth the vacation experience. There are many high class vendors set up in the area for this three-day musical extravaganza, offering fine cuisine and mementos to remember this trip by.
Coast Hotels and resorts always offers special rates and discounts for the Jazz Festival event, but the rooms are always booked up fast as the festival date gets closer. The wise traveler will prepare ahead of time and book a room months in advance.
While you are not at the festival itself, you can spend time on the scenic beaches overlooking an eye catching blue ocean, enjoy the twenty four hour a day nightlife available in Long Beach, or take the family to one of the many local attractions. Long beach is home to many such establishments such as zoos, museums, and parks.
If an exotic musical adventure and a non-stop party is your idea of a great vacation getaway, you had better go ahead and book a room for the Long Beach Jazz Festival. Be a part of the California adventure!
