Queensway Bay Project. (California: Long Beach).

This city by the sea is even more popular among planners now that the Queensway Bay Project is nearing completion. The $100 million effort to redevelop 300 acres of oceanfront land downtown includes Rainbow Harbor--home to tall ships, tour boats, and the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific--as well as the development of a 500,000-square-foot entertainment and retail area.

The Convention & Entertainment Center frames views of the Pacific Ocean and offers more than 300,000 square feet of meeting and exhibit space, two VIP lounges, a full service business center, hospitality catering, and state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment on site. The center's flexible, contemporary facilities, including two theaters and a sports arena, can accommodate almost any type of meeting, convention, or trade show.

For those looking for a less traditional venue, Long Beach has lots to offer. Consider the Long Beach Museum of Art, a 1912 mansion and sculpture garden able to accommodate up to 950 people for a reception. Or the Queen Mary, one of the city's most notable and historic attractions, which recently completed a $200 million upgrade. Intimate gatherings and large groups alike will appreciate the ship's impressive ambiance and rich history.
