Overview

From a working-class, blue-collar navy beach town, to a reinvented seaside hotspot, Long Beach has transformed itself nicely over the last two decades. Visitors can enjoy all sorts of trendy eateries, upscale cocktail bars, and waterfront adventures. In many ways, Long Beach is essentially the same as Los Angeles, just shrunk to a more manageable size. Today, much of the city has been revitalized, boosting communal spirit and local neighborhood flavor. 

Long Beach has a bit of everything, and everyone, from tattooed hipsters to well-dressed socialites. There's plenty of activities for families, including an excellent aquarium and an array of water sports. When the sun goes down, partygoers young and old flock to various clubs and bars along Pine Ave and the Promenade, and everything is surprisingly walkable. There's also some great art galleries, tasty restaurants, and comfy coffee shops. Mass transit is also good, and traffic is, by California standards, "not that bad". So when you're ready to plan your next trip to Southern California, make sure to visit the "Aquatic Capital of America", Long Beach!
