Default Long Beach, CA

I'm going to be in Long Beach, CA for the Champ Car GP in april. Never been to that area before, so anything I should be doing when the racing stops?

if you have time and go see the Queen Mary - very impressive, if you have just a short time go to Shoreline village and have a pint in the Yard House - 300 beers on tap including some very obscure British ones

I fly in thursday and leave sunday after the race, so I have plenty of time to sample some of the 300.

Anybody used Long Beach airport?
