Long Beach Gay Neighborhoods
Long Beach, California, is the sixth most populous city in the state and is considered a part of the Greater LA area. This means residents have access to everything in the LA area. The city is also a major shipping hub, and its port is the second-busiest container port in the country. Other major industries in the city include electronics, petrochemicals, aircraft manufacturing, and healthcare. The Long Beach school district, however, is actually the largest employer in the city itself. A good number of residents in Long Beach commute to other parts of the LA area for work.
Living in Long Beach isn’t cheap since a lot of the property is on or near the beach. However, that shouldn’t detract LGBT individuals who want a gorgeous view. If you’re looking for a gay ghetto, you’ll want to take a look at Alamitos Beach. This neighborhood is on the waterfront and is near many LGBT-owned businesses.
Condos in this area range from $160,000 to $5.75 million. Single-family homes start at $270,000 and top out at about $3.5 million.
