The main port for Los Angeles is located here, so the freeways are very busy with truck traffic, as well as commuters. Many hotels are suited for business travelers, so if you're doing business in Los Angeles, it's a good location for overnighting it. Families will love the museums, seaport village & aquariums in downtown Long Beach. Further south, Naples has beaches & Belmont Shores has the shops and restaurants.
description: A very large city on the oceanfront. The main LA sea port keeps this a 24-hour operation, non-stop busy city sounds. Crime and gangs and police, and all that go with it. Not exactly a dreamy vacation mecca near Los Angeles, so you know now that you've been warned.
