Long Beachis a large port city in Los Angeles County in Southern California. Long Beach is a large port city with an impressive coastline. It is situated at the very southeast edge of Los Angeles County, bordering Orange County, in a region known as Gateway Cities. 

You may hear different people say both wonderful and horrible things about the city. This is because the city is so large that it encompasses everything ranging from a large industrial area to extremely exclusive communities.

Long Beach is recognized as one of the most culturally diverse cities in the United States, with immigrants from all regions of the world calling it home. It tends to have a more East-Coast, blue collar feel than the rest of coastal California.

Long Beach isn't typically the primary target of someone's tourist visit, but it is centrally located to just about everything else that you'd want to see in Southern California. That said, Long Beach does have some nice people-gathering areas as well as genuine tourist attractions such as the Queen Mary floating museum and a world-class aquarium.
