Video Long Beach Ocean Blvd. Drive and High Rise Buildings




Long Beach Video of a drive along Ocean Avenue show high rise buildings, the historic Breakers building, Long Beach Arena and people walking.


The video of Long Beach downtown Ocean Avenue shows a view from a car driving along the boulevard, looking up at the high rise commercial and residential buildings. Those who know and love this city of around 500,000 population, share a strong passion for its history, its buildings and its Bohemian flavor as the international city.


In the video, the car passes by the popular dining and nightlife area of Pine Avenue, which also is the street where you'll find Long Beach Convention Center.  The trek began in San Pedro with a visit to the Red Car trolley ride. After heading over the big green bridge to Long Beach's downtown area, the massive expanse of port containers from China that could be seen from the vista made it very clear that Long Beach is tied to the world economy in a big way. It has the look and feel of a big city, and offers the amenities of a port. Queen Mary is docked in Long Beach harbor. And you'll find a Carnival Cruise ship departs from there as well. Plus, you can take a Catamaran to Catalina Island or hop aboard a helicopter for a ride over.


But in our car, driving along the Avenue, Long Beach looks like a city of height and character. The next time you visit, be sure to put a stop at Long Beach on your list. You'll enjoy it.
