Although it is officially a part of Los Angeles County, Long Beach is a far stretch from being anything like Los Angeles. The overall lax attitude of its residents gives Long Beach a laid back and unassuming quality that many of the locals thrive in.
Aside from its main tourist attractions in Downtown Los Angeles, Long Beach’s vibrant multicultural communities are vividly expressed through the variety in its eclectic bars, restaurants, and specialty shops that lie East of the harbor.
Instituted in 2008, Record Store Day is an internationally celebrated holiday, promoting the importance of supporting your local, independent record store, and the culture attached.
