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.
