Long Beach Heritage reopens the East Village Walking tours on Saturday, Feb. 8. Future tours of the historic district will be given the second Saturday of each month.

Victorian cottages, from as early as 1905, nestle between stunning Art Deco and Italian Renaissance commercial buildings. Tour highlights include the Broadlind Hotel, Cooper Arms, Lafayette Complex, Artaban and the Royal Hotel.
