Long Beach, with a population of 467,354 people, is the seventh largest community in California, and is one of the most attractive larger cities with really good opportunities for friendships, recreation, romance, and more. People love California because of its weather, lovely landscapes, tourist attractions, and quality of life in general, and Long Beach is often described as “a big city with a small-town vibe”, that's full of arts, culture, adventures, sunshine and smiles. It is also a multicultural place with a cosmopolitan feel, where you can find people from many states, countries, faiths and denominations! Long Beach is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays, which attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery, various waterfront activities and that beautiful Southern California coastal beach life. Welcome to Long Beach ... "The International City"!
