I have not been in Long Beach in years. It is a whole new city. Streets are nice and clean. The public transportation works.

There is so much to see on Ocean drive. We enjoyed the route, taking our time to see the sights. The Long Beach Museum of Arts is located on East Ocean drive

This area is my favorite of all the beaches along the coast. Their Pride is showing !! Traffic can be at a standstill at times but that is true of any popular beach area in CA.

We enjoyed a stroll along Pine Ave and we also drove on Ocean Blvd and saw it during the Long Beach Grand Prix preparation.Scenic and historic at the same time. We love the design of the freeway access into and out of Downtown Long Beach....More

We stayed right downtown about 1/2 mile from Pine Pier. We had occasion to enjoy a few restaurants in the area and walk about a bit. It has much to offer if the air were cleaner. We did enjoy the walk down to the aquarium...More

While not overly impress with the waterfront park, I did enjoy the downtown area. Great mix of flowers, trees, sculpture, and art! Enjoyed just sitting on a bench a relaxing in the warm sun and cool breeze!

I think the way to learn this is to first decide what you want to see and then how much time you want to spend on each place. check out TA's Lists of Things to Do and See, under Long Beach
