I have been house sitting for a friend of mine for a couple of weeks. My friend has a super cute studio in long beach. It's in a super cute artsy area on fourth street. Brian and I have been trying tons of new places to eat and having fun walking places. I love the small town vibe that downtown long beach has. It has such a charm. I grew up here for 16 years but never appreciated it. I live in orange county and everything is so spread out and mostly not in walking distance (unless you want to walk several miles).
