Peninsula Reviews

2
I live in an area called the Peninsula in Long Beach California. We face the ocean. It is a quiet,residential beach community, with

single family and multifamily apartments. We have a historic boardwalk right outside our door. Many people walk their dogs,ride bikes,jog, stand up Paddle, kayak in our bay and ocean.I moved here 13 years ago from Austin, Texas. I lived back east in New England and Los Angeles, Ca. Log Beach is my favorite by far! This a a growing dynamic city that cares about its community. People here get involved with charities want to give back. Like most big cities we have our crime and gangs, but I feel that there is a collective push to help people here and make it a great quality of life.

We have had recent bike thefts and vandalism in our area. Police and residents have been very proactive in responding

and getting information out to residents.
