Long Beach is a fun place to live. From free yoga on the beach to bicycle rides with the wind in your hair. Progress has really been shown in this city. They have rebuilt the mind set of their community. With the violent gang influences in the 1990's, Long Beach was considered a ghetto. Now, Long Beach is a tourist attraction with so much character! For those who have resided here for decades have seen the change, and I am happy to be a part of it. This city is not perfect, but it is perfectly imperfect. Don't get me wrong, crime is prevalent. It keeps you on her toes, gives it an edge. Love you Long Beach.
Long Beach is like no other, located right in the heart of Southern California! Not to brag, but what's better than living near a beach? Once you pass the "Welcome to Long Beach" sign, from wherever you are, you would not want to leave. Long Beach is a very easy going city, not too fast paced, has friendly people, and rarely any traffic. Long Beach is known for its diverse backgrounds, so you are bound to be exposed to different cultures with every bite you take. Some of these foods include: Hawaiian BBQ, Korean BBQ, Vietnamese Pho, and of course 3 In N Out Burger Restaurants. With affordable places to visit such as, The Aquarium of the Pacific, The Pike Outlets, the Grand Prix, and the Queen Mary, they are great ways to spend the day. If you're more into going out at night, check out Belmont Shore, on 2nd street, there's tons of breweries, restaurants, and shops for your entertainment. Long Beach welcomes all walks of life, so we hope to see you soon.
