Only Tourists use Hydrobikes

Long Beach is home to a lot of beach sports, but riding a hydro bike is just not one of them. You might catch paddle boarders roaming through or a jet ski flying by but locals will stay away from the hydro bikes.

 

Long Beach Neighborhoods are very Diverse

Want a city feel go to downtown. Want to explore the gayborhood then make your way down Broadway. Want to live large think Naples. Want to live in Long Beach without actually living there, then Signal Hill is your place. Want to explore the indie scene go to retro-row. Yeah, you can say Long Beach is pretty diverse.

 

La La Land is in Long Beach

Again, for you film buffs Seb’s (Sebastian’s bar in La La Land) is actually called The Blind Donkey and is located at 149 Linden Ave. Visit Mia’s house just a few blocks over at the beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival apartments located at 1728 E 3rd street.
