Long Beach is about 25 miles south of Los Angeles; as part of the spread out ecosystem of greater Los Angeles, it’s got some of the commuter challenges you might expect from any Southern California city. But it’s possible to have a walking and transit friendly life in this beach side city. Metro Rail runs into LA and Long Beach Transit provides extensive bus service. Long Beach has great biking and won an award for their “green lane” project – a program designating safe places for cyclists in traffic – in 2010.
Long Beach has the country’s second largest shipping port and there’s oil here too – you’ll see the rigs offshore. Boeing and Verizon are big employers in the region. The Queen Mary, a classic ocean liner, is docked in Long Beach and the Catalina Express leaves from the waterfront to Catalina Island several times a day.
Some errands can be accomplished on foot.
