I'm not used to seeing homeless people in tents but this is reality around long Beach. It was very sad... unforgettable for the wrong reasons. The area is also dirty with garbage scattered around. In need of clean up!

I have not been in Long Beach in years. It is a whole new city. Streets are nice and clean. The public transportation works.

There is so much to see on Ocean drive. We enjoyed the route, taking our time to see the sights. The Long Beach Museum of Arts is located on East Ocean drive

This area is my favorite of all the beaches along the coast. Their Pride is showing !! Traffic can be at a standstill at times but that is true of any popular beach area in CA.

We enjoyed a stroll along Pine Ave and we also drove on Ocean Blvd and saw it during the Long Beach Grand Prix preparation.Scenic and historic at the same time. We love the design of the freeway access into and out of Downtown Long Beach....More

I have been watching Long Beach change as a city over the past 3 decades. Where once it was very depressed it is now becoming quite a hip city with plenty of restaurants, bars and entertainment for the whole family.

Not ever too busy. Good shops. Great ice-cream shop and cinemas. Walk along the boardwalk. Grab a drink or something to eat. I love it

Had breakfast in downtown and had so much fun we decided to walk around. Great little shops everywhere - something for everyone.

I think the way to learn this is to first decide what you want to see and then how much time you want to spend on each place. check out TA's Lists of Things to Do and See, under Long Beach
