At the southernmost end of Long Beach lies Belmont Shore – one of the more desirable places to live in Long Beach. This small but lively beach neighborhood is centered around 2nd Street and its 15 intersecting cross-streets. The bordering streets go from The Toledo in the north, south to Ocean Blvd. (including the beach on the south side of the street), and from Bay Shore Ave. on the east to Livingston on the west.
Belmont Shore is home to over 250 shops, restaurants, and other businesses. These, along with the numerous beach activities that can be enjoyed here, such as sailing, kitesurfing, and kayaking, provide endless opportunities for entertainment. The area also prides itself in having a large sense of community. Many community events are held throughout the year such as Stroll & Savor, Art Walks, the Belmont Car Show, and the annual Holiday Parade. The Belmont Pier, located at Ocean and 39th Place, was rebuilt in 1966, and offers free public fishing with no license required as long as you stay on the pier to fish.
There is a wide range of homes in this area from quaint, single-story homes to multimillion-dollar mansions. Styles include Mediterranean, Spanish, Craftsman, and Beach Cottages. The majority of these residences were built between 1940 and 1970, but some were built even earlier than that. Many have gone through remodels and additions since then. Homes in Belmont Shore typically sit on lots between 2200 and 3500 square feet.
