Long Beach has a dynamic and diverse economy. It’s one of California’s largest cities and could be the ideal target, both individuals and businesses, to market your firm’s services.
The city is located between Los Angeles and Orange County, providing access to a vast number of consumers and businesses in Southern California. Long Beach is also located on the Pacific Ocean and its port provides access to countries across the world. Its port and proximity to the Pacific Ocean is what has gotten it dubbed “The Aquatic Capital of America.” Other factors that got Long Beach its nickname are its consistently ideal climate and waters that are perfect for sailing in and the many Olympians and world champions that come from this city.
Downtown Long Beach is about 22 miles south of downtown Los Angeles. The two cities border each other for several miles along Long Beach’s southwestern coast. Long Beach also borders Orange County on its southeast coast. Four freeways (405, 605, 710 and 91) provide easy access to downtown and greater Long Beach.
