About Long Beach
Long Beach, known as the Waterfront Center of Southern California, was first settled in 1784 by Manuel Nieto as part of a large, Spanish land grant. Since the eighteenth century Long Beach has blossomed into the sixth largest city in California, and the thirty-sixth largest city in the nation. Over time it has developed into a pop culture delight for southern California. With the hottest, and most diverse night life, Long Beach is just heating up when the sun goes down! Want a Latin flare, or some sultry jazz? Maybe a bit of Rock n' Roll? This eclectic city has got you covered by way of night clubs. If you fancy a night of pool, shuffleboard, and big screen t.v.'s, you may want to hit up the ever popular Acapulco Inn. Or hang ten at the hottest new joint on the block overlooking the beautiful Rainbow Harbor, Mai Tai Bar. Take a walk, or bike, or roll along the pleasant shores of Long Beach and experience Long Beach Performing Arts Center, Long Beach Symphony Orchestra, Long Beach Opera and International City Theater just minutes away. This city is practically brimming with culture. Five and a half miles of beach spread allows for swimming, jet skiing, wind surfing, kayaking, and boating. Take a peek at Wheel Fun Rentals for your surreys, Choppers, Quad Sports, Deuce Coupes, tandems and cruiser needs. Long Beach also houses a huge variety of restaurants. From chic and unique to mom and pops diner, this beautiful city seems to satisfy every craving. And last, but definitely not least, Long beach is centrally located for easy access to attractions such as Catalina Island, Disney Land, Universal Studio's and so much more. Whether your looking for a party or a secluded retreat, Long Beach is definitely somewhere that you want to be!
