December is a great month to visit Southern California. While many parts of the country has snow and cold temps, you can expect warm days and cool nights in Long Beach. Long Beach is a big, urban city but it is also a city by the sea, with a laid back atmosphere like a beach resort. BEWARE, it is habit forming. This was my second Christmas there.
Long Beach is the 5th largest city in California with all of the excitement and amenities a big city can offer. World class attractions such as The Queen Mary, the Aquarium of the Pacific, art museums, and more than 5 miles of beach.
Take a stroll along Belmont Shore's 2nd Street, a fun place to shop and dine while sitting outside people watching. This was one of my favorite passtimes.
I also like to walk along the bay and look at the beautiful houses and boats.
There were many birds enjoying the bay and the nice sunshine also. I saw a lot of pelicans grabbing their breakfast from the sea. There were also many shorebirds walking along the beach. I always saw seagulls flying about and many coots out in the water.
- Pros:Lovely area
- Cons:How can you afford to own a house here?
- In a nutshell:A great place to visit.
