Located along the picturesque Pacific Coast between Los Angeles and Orange County,

the City of Long Beach combines the amenities of a large metropolitan area with the

tranquility of a California beach town. Residents enjoy the benefits of a global port, a

commercial airport, attractive neighborhoods, an award winning school district, and a

vibrant and accessible downtown with numerous dining and shopping options. The

future is bright for Long Beach as the City is alive with activity.
