Located in the heart of Southern California’s beach communities, Long Beach blends urban sophistication with a relaxed beach resort vibe. Interesting hotels, world-class attractions, front-line museums, a walkable downtown, award-winning restaurants, unique shopping, a cruise line port, and a thriving, multi-faceted arts and culture scene make this city by the sea a great place to live. For five years on and off, I have lived in and enjoyed the five-and-a-half miles of sandy beachfront, miles of inland bays and waterways, and of course the warm glow of year-round California.
