Travel Links of Interest

Long Beach is more than the industrial stepsister to Los Angeles.

It is one of the country's largest ports and is fast on its way to becoming the center of Pacific Rim trade. Still, it's the palm trees and the sunny beaches for which this seaside city is most deservedly remembered.

The city's flourishing Pacific beachfront and revitalized downtown keeps things hopping with southern California's trademark brand of bohemian nightlife. In addition, bookstores, coffee houses, and trendy nightclubs abound.

Plenty of tourist attractions make the scene as well, including the stately Queen Mary, the Aquarium, the Long Beach Museum of Art, and the shops and restaurants of Shoreline Village. Plus, Long Beach serves as the gateway to lovely Catalina Island. Lots to do in Long Beach? You bet!
