Join Long Beach Heritage Saturday, February 8, 2014 as it reopens the East Village Walking tours. Future tours of the historic district will be given the second Saturday of each month.

The East Village is home to several of the earliest “own-your-own” residential high-rises catering to elegant resort living built after World War I and the discovery of oil in the region. Victorian cottages, from as early as 1905, nestle between stunning Art Deco and Italian Renaissance commercial buildings. Today’s East Village residents enjoy charming boutiques, restaurants, and cafes on streets lined with spectacular art and architecture. Tour highlights include the Broadlin Hotel, Cooper Arms, Lafayette Complex, Artaban, and the Royal Hotel.

The Long Beach Heritage East Village Walking Tour is  Saturday, February 8, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The two hour tour begins in front of Modica’s restaurant at Ocean Blvd and Linden Ave. Tickets are $ 10..00 each and can be purchased through Pay Pal at www.lbheritage.org. Tickets will be held in Will call and distributed at the meeting site.
