Our Community

Welcome to Long Beach, California

Long Beach is a beautiful place to live and work! We are the seventh largest city in California and lie within the greater Los Angeles area. As of 2010, our population was over 462,000 people! 

One of the best things about living in Long Beach is our beautiful weather. Most days are sunny and warm with temperatures in the 70’s and 80’s. This makes it possible to spend a great amount of time outdoors, enjoying our many parks and outside activities. 

Our city is approximately four miles from the ocean. There are many fun things to do in and around the beach: whale watching, boat excursions, swimming, parasailing, and more. We know that once you spend some time in and around Long Beach, you’ll never want to return home!
