    What else ...

    Long Beach is very vibrant and offers a beach apart from many events throughout the year. Los Angeles is about an hour with public transport. You would take the bus to the metro station in Long Beach. The metro goes straight to downtown LA. By car, LA is about half hour without traffic.
