About Downtown Long Beach

Long Beach, California was originally home to indigenous natives. For about 10,000 years they roamed the coastal area until Spanish explorers and subsequent Spanish settlers trickled into the area. In 1843, an American settler purchased a ranch and thus began the influx of Americans to the region. By the time the 20th century rolled around, Long Beach was a successful plateau used for drilling for oil. Today, however, Long Beach is known for being one of the biggest ports in the world. Freight and cruise liners find their way into the massive causeways and hundreds of docks ensconced along the shore.

Visitors to the city can also view the interesting skyline of modern Long Beach. It consists of a glass pyramid, which now acts as the city convention center, a huge maze of piers and docks jutting into the ocean and the massive bridges that span the gaps between one part of the city to the next.

Buildings within the downtown area are old, some reaching as far back as the early settler days. The long ethereal walkways along the ocean's edge are reminiscent of Santa Monica Boulevard. Narrow, winding strips of cement weave between miles of manicured lawns spotted with palm trees along the coastline.

Right off the shoreline one can make out the outline of multiple islands. It is here that much of the Long Beach oil drilling was done. Some of them are still active to this day. At one time a large pier extended into the water from the shoreline. It housed a wooden roller coaster known as "The Pike," but it was torn down some years ago. In downtown, the streets are blocked off every year in order to host Formula 1 races. Many movies have been filmed along the scenic coastline and green parks.
