Downtown Long Beach has improved but yet to me it needs to improve more. However it is much cleaner then before.

There is SO much here now since this has been revitalized. It's smallish as a downtown area goes, lots of things within a small space but it's a wonderful happening spot. Nice restaurants, nice waterfront walking, a lovely place to go on a Sunday afternoon.

Downtown Long Beach is always happening, some event or concert or convention is always poppin' up. Pine Ave north of Ocean Blvd has all the eateries you could ever want. Asian, Greek, Spanish, Mexican, Latin American, Argentenian, Japanese, Irish, Seafood, Italian... Sketchy corner on Pine and Broadway because of the 7-Eleven.. Make sure you always watch your surroundings here and... More

If you haven't been to downtown Long Beach in 5 years, you need to; it's not the same place. New shops, dining, apartments, The Pike is actually cool, The East Village is now a lively, funky Arts District, and there's plenty to do on both Pine and Broadway. Don't be the last to find out how cool the LBC is!

I love downtown Long Beach, with the old historical buildings alongside the new skyscrapers. Beautiful ocean views and sunsets, as well (even though the sun sets in the West) lol!

Long beach doesn't have amazing architecture, or ancient cultural sites so it seems like most other towns in California of the same size. It's nice that you get little peaks of water between the buildings. It's usually pretty clean except the public library which apparently the city gave over to the homeless, but we feel safe walking here, the drivers... More
