Destination Information
Long Beach is California's fifth largest city. It offers a unique combination of strategic location, excellent climate, shoreline beauty, and Southern California lifestyle, wrapped in one package. From the emphasis on the "three T's" (Trade, Tourism and Technology), to the city's bountiful array of business and residential neighborhoods, it's no wonder Long Beach is quickly becoming one of the leading regions for business, tourism and community in the west. Centrally located to all Southern California attractions, Long Beach offer many attractions within the city, while being within driving distance from downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Orange County.
