First time in L.A. and it was recommended to go to this spot. There is something for everyone to do. Plenary of shops, restaurants and activities for the kids. A little bit of something for everyone.

I'm not used to seeing homeless people in tents but this is reality around long Beach. It was very sad... unforgettable for the wrong reasons. The area is also dirty with garbage scattered around. In need of clean up!

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
