Rainbow Lagoon Park is a fabulous place to visit. My husband and I attended the Long Beach Bayou & Mardi Gras Festival here and had an outrageously awesome experience. The scenery is just so serene and inviting that it relaxes you immediately and makes you feel at home. The water is a cooling avalanche of goodness and peace. This is one of my favorite sites in Long Beach and I can hardly wait to experience it again.
Pros: scenery, weather
Cons: Use sunblock, umbrella
