Belmont Heights is a district in the south-east portion of the city of Long Beach near the ocean and the more commercial community of Belmont Shore. The district commemorates the old City of Belmont Heights, which was incorporated in 1908 and annexed to Long Beach in 1909. Belmont Heights’ borders are Ocean Boulevard and Livingston Drive to the south, Redondo Avenue on the west, 7th Street to the North, and Nieto Avenue to the east.
The area is mostly residential, but also has an active business district, the strip of Broadway east of Redondo Avenue. In Belmont Heights, find a very relaxed atmosphere of mostly single family homes, mixed in with a few upscale condo complexes, and an old-fashioned neighborhood feel—kids actually walking to school in the morning, locals walking their dogs, and almost everyone in the neighborhood frequenting the charming eatery Ma & Pa’s.
