Long Beach is a city all it's own. It comes alive with people of all shapes and sizes. The personalities cannot be harnessed. The city never sleeps! The crime rate was not the greatest I must admit. But I was never bored!

MVP on Redondo is the best burger hole in the wall I have ever had! Try the Shaq Burger! The rent is outrageous though!

I moved to Long Beach to attend Cal State University Long Beach. Honestly, it changed my life. I grew up in a different suburb in California, but Long Beach is so different. I wouldn't necessarily live here for my whole life, but it was definitely worth coming here for college. I like coming back and visiting here to see my friends.

My favorite thing about Long Beach is that there are honestly always places to go to, and it's not too far to go to other fun cities like LA. It's not too quiet but never too loud either unless you live somewhere that is filled with college students. The weather is great, too. And of course, we're near a few beaches, so that's great.
