a: Long Beach ~
b: Santa Monica

What:

"I also ate the best vegan grilled cheese I've ever had (31st among all grilled cheeses), missed a lot of exits while driving, and hung out at a bike repair shop in Long Beach. Long Beach is like Santa Monica if they traded in all their boutique clothing stores for adequate parking and street cred."

a: Long Beach ~
b: living in a bubble

What:

"I think that it is great way to expose people to all different cultures. Living here in Long Beach is like living in a bubble. Most people don't know much about the rest of the world, " said Lauren Del Rio, a 20-year-old Communication Studies major. "

a: Long beach ~
b: a sane little slice of NorCal

What:

"Living and working near the ocean in Long Beach. Playing beach volleyball, working on my project car, trying to find time to get the car to the racetrack, and just having a good time with my cat and boyfriend of 2 years. Long Beach is like a sane little slice of NorCal right in the middle of the LA chaos, and I love it! It's tough to beat playing on the beach in shorts & a tank top in December."

All The Same?

a: Long beach ~
b: any other beach in California

What: "In a way, as someone who has lived in Alaska for some time and who has traveled around, I find this sad. Most places are so homogeneous that there's nothing special to 'em. Lahaina is like Waikiki is like downtown Kona is like Cozumel is like the San Diego piers is like Catalina is like Long Beach is like any other beach in California is like... well, you get the picture. And yeah, each location has its own flavor, language, and feel, but the similarities are striking. Businesses strive for consistency, land owners strive for higher property values..."

a: Long beach ~
b: America

What:

"B&B: Long Beach is your place to remain sane, huh?"


"CC: Most definitely. Long Beach is like America because it has so many different sections. I grew up in the El Dorado area and it has so many different sections. On the East, you have Cambodians, Asians. In the Upper East, there's white folks and out on the West, you have the black and Hispanics. It shaped me into the person that I am now. My parents had me on lockdown, but growing up, things are always available to you. Growing up, I've done pretty much everything that I wanted to do."

a: Long Beach ~
b: Acapulco

What:

"I always think that Los Angeles is like Mexico City, Pasadena is like Cuernavaca, Long Beach is like Acapulco and San Jose is like Guadalajara. The city is beautiful, with a lot of flowers and green spots. The people are more friendly and nicer than in Los Angeles. I want to eat at Sushi O Sushi (in Santa Clara). When we were there last time, everyone in the kitchen knew us"

a: Long beach ~
b: Cheers

What: "Growing up in Long Beach is like having your own version of the show 'Cheers'," said Apple. "Everyone knows your name. It's a place you can come home to. Everybody take care of one another."

Looks best with a smog alert

a: Long Beach Sunset ~
b: psychedelic sky show

What:

Looking West while standing on Seal Beach has this look. There are many refineries in Wilmington and many ships putting exhaust into the air. There is so much junk in the air that the sun line is parsed by all the pollutant molecules. It may be bad for everyones health, but the purples, pinks, and oranges and yellows are a sight that everyone should see.
