Long Beach, California
Too often thought of as just a part of Los Angeles, Long Beach is very much its own city and has its own character. It is located 20 miles south of downtown L.A. but is a world of difference away. Once a large sheep ranch, then a resort town and fishing town, it now is home to many manufacturing companies, film studios and a diverse variety of people who call it home.
Boeing is the largest employer in the city now, but the seaport is the second busiest in the United States. In addition, oil is found both on shore and off shore making the petroleum industry a major factor as well. Long Beach has always combined both industry and good residential lifestyle in its own way.
Urban Beach Life
In looking for your Long Beach apartment, the options are huge. You will find you have a choice of urban, suburban or coastal. Coastal neighborhoods like Belmont Shores, Naples or Penisula are really worth looking into. Naples is especially interesting because of its canals. Belmont Heights is close to the Cal State campus and has many complexes, and is very lively.
The downtown area is now very stylish. There are pedestrian friendly neighbors and the proximity to the marina and beaches is excellent. Long Beach has dozens of neighborhoods which you'll want to see before making a choice.
Ocean Liners and Formula One Racing
Seeing all the attractions in Long Beach could take some time as there are so many interesting things. The RMS Queen Mary is docked there, and is now both a hotel and museum. The Aquarium of the Pacific is located just across the water and is one of the largest and most interesting aquariums anywhere.
Culturally, the arts are well represented with museum, theatre and concert venues. There's indy style car racing each year in a Grand Prix event where city streets turn into a formula one raceway.
Most of all, it is the Southern California outdoor lifestyle which is so good in Long Beach. Your Long Beach apartment won't be any distance at all from places to sail, fish, swim, hike or bike, and if you really need to getaway just hop on a ferry to Catalina Island.
You'll find a diverse choice of restaurants. Being home to many different immigrant groups over the years, the selection is vast. Seafood, of course, is very popular and one should try the locally famous King's Fish House. Along the waterfront, you'll find plenty of little places to try too.
The Queen Mary has four restaurants - all of which are good - as well as an observation bar. It isn't just for tourists either!
From salsa to jazz to hip hop, Long Beach is great for nightlife. The downtown area has the biggest concentration of clubs and bars. Hush is a very popular place on weekends with music brought in by different promoters. At Sevilla Cafe, you can watch flamenco dancers, try it yourself or go upstairs to the main club for go go dancers and great djs.
Once in your Long Beach apartment, you'll definitely want to get out and see some of these as well as find ones close to home.
