- Freeway Access – SoCal traffic has a reputation for being constantly congested, and it isn’t something you can normally avoid. Living in the Greater Los Angeles Area means you’ll probably need a car. However, one perk you’ll have living in Long Beach is the central location with access to the I-405, I-605, I-710N and SR 22-E.
- Find Your Fit – There are dozens of different subdivisions that make up the wide range neighborhoods of Long Beach, and these can change rapidly within a couple blocks. There are areas such as Downtown, Belmont Shore, Bixby Knolls, and Naples, just to name a few. Familiarize yourself with the area before committing to a certain neighborhood.
- Port of Long Beach – Long Beach is home to the second largest seaport in the United States. A byproduct of having such a large port nearby is there tends to be a lot of large trucks on the road that contribute to the traffic during rush hour. However, it remains a major economic force in the region and supports more than 30,000 jobs in Long Beach alone.
