- Long rumored to be haunted, the Queen Mary is a 1019 foot boat that has come to symbolize the city of Long Beach, just south of Los Angeles. The Queen Mary is a retired luxury liner bigger than the Titanic, though less tragic. It has been permanently moored in Long Beach Harbor since 1967 and gone through multiple tourist incarnations. Visitors to the Queen Mary can join a guided tour or book a room in the lower decks which have been converted into a hotel. The Queen Mary is visible from most of Long Beach and is the city's preeminent attraction. Films such as "The Poseidon Adventure" have profited from the Queen Mary's beautiful Art Deco design. Nearby attractions like the Aquarium of the Pacific ensure that a day in Long Beach is not to be missed.
