The weather in the Long Beach area is generally sunny and warm. If you get closer to the beach, it remains the same but slightly cooler and windier. Winter and fall are very similar- with only a couple weeks of very chilly/windy weather. The weather here does not create any natural disasters. It is very moderate, and never goes to extremes, except on very few occasions during the summer. Natural disasters are generally not a problem in this area, except for earthquakes. These occur several times throughout the year, especially during the summer.

My wardrobe consists of many long sleeves and sweaters during the winter and fall, and shorter and thinner clothing during the summer/spring.

This area is located near multiple beaches and activites. With so many activities and community events, the overall quality of life seems great. However, there is a large amount of homeless population and nothing seems to be helping them.
It is within extremely close proximity to Cal State Long Beach so there are a lot of college students which is fine for me considering I am one of them. Grocery stores, restaurants and recreational shopping are all nearby which is very convenient. It is geared toward college students, I would not plan to live here after my schooling.
