The Rainbow Harbor Light Dec 10, 2008
Located on a shallow hill in the Long Beach Marina, the traditional-looking Rainbow Harbor Light is not actually used for navigation, but is worth mention due to its unique displays. Its rotating light is pointed more downward than seaward and sweeps the base of the palm-lined hill. At each rotation of the light, the tower takes on a brilliant glow of a different color; red, purple, green, blue, brown. The display is viewed nicely by night from the nearby Shoreline Village boardwalk. A bike trail spirals up the grassy hill making it a pleasant stroll or ride for viewing the city skyline and the harbor.

The Rainbow Harbor Light was dedicated in December 2000; constructed by the Long Beach Lions Club as a symbol of their fund-raising efforts for the visually impaired. The base of the light tower houses the Long Beach harbor master's office. The light is a fine example of the well-planned layout and design of the Long Beach waterfront.
