I live in Long Beach and work downtown. Pine Ave is closed for outdoors dining between 3rd and Broadway. There are some nice restaurants, but Long Beach must address its homeless problem. I don't feel safe walking around downtown. With all the boarded up businesses and street art it looks like a ghetto. Not a place I would recommend.

This is a fun place to visit with friends or a date. There are many restaurants within the vicinty, club, and a movie theatre as well. It's relatively safe and a few blocks down on Shoreline Village are more restaurants and a game place for all ages. There's a Bubba's Shrimp, Islands Burger etc. In the evening you may need a light jacket or sweater as the ocean breeze can get a bit nippy.

- Long beach is much prettier than Santa Monica and Venice Beach. More peaceful with more families with kids and less homeless people.

- Food was expensive. Be prepared to pay tourist price.

- It will take about 1h 30 mins to get from downtown LA to Long Beach via train.

- Seems to have lots of parking sports but you will have to pay .

- This place is also a little heaven for the rich Americans. It looks to me a little over-pretentious.

- A corndog cost about $4 and a bottle of water cost $2 for a mini size bottle.

- Visiting once is enough

Pine Avenue reminds me of the Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego. They have really done a great job rehabbing this area of Long Beach.

There is plenty of food establishments, retail, bars and clubs.

Long Beach also has a Passport bus service that is free in the downtown area.

I recently visited Downtown Long Beach during a three day convention on Pine Ave. and stayed at the Hyatt. I had a chance to visit some of the surrounding clubs and restaurants and found the night life to be fantastic. The Yard House seemed to have a good crowd, and there is a PF Chang's close by too. Just up the street is an Irish Pub called The Auld Dubliner and this place was jammed. Seemed to be the place to go, a must stop for most of the other convention attendees. Good local crowd and live music every night I was there....yes I did end up going there each night!

In the past downtown was the place to go for shopping and business. Then as other venues were built outside the downtown area, such as the Lakewood Mall and others, downtown long beach went into a spiraling decline. Then a decade or more the city fathers were successful in building housing and lofts in some new and converted some of the old stores into housing units. Now that people actually live downtown it has started a revival of sorts. With the convention center just on the other side of Ocean Blvd and the revival at what used to be the Pike, it is booming with a multitude of restaurants serving whatever your taste buds hunger for. There is one failed Mall several blocks up but everything else seems to be doing well.

Pine Avenue is a pretty popular street with many restaurants and some shopping. It's very close to the waterfront and marina so once you're done eating and shopping you can stroll over and enjoy the waterfront. Many hotels are nearby and the convention center is right on Pine Ave also. Nice place to be in Long Beach.

Walk until you find what you like. My favorites: George's Greek, Alegria (Spanish and Latin American), L'Opera (fancy Italian). Not far away--Congregation Ale House, Wokcano (sushi), and many others. Excellent people watching 7 days a week.

If you are staying at a hotel in the area then pine ave is a must up to 3rd st ; unless you are looking for a Walmart or the New Chuckie Cheese off 5th st where their is a nice but small shopping center. You will find a transportation center next to the Blue Line that's first class and they have walking guides ( dressed in a Red Shirt that are very helpful if you need directions and they also provide extra security. First its a hub for transportation the Blue Line and extensive bus service (one of the best in L.A.County)They have a free bus that goes down Pine to 8th st and to the shoreline Village and the Queen Mary. If you have the time and small amount of luggage you can save $20.00 and take the Blue Line to then Green Line, hop on a bus that will drop you off at the terminal of you airline. It takes about 40 minutes and during heavy traffic hours is faster than a cab.Warning the Blue line attracts some crazy people, but not dangerous. I always take the Blue line to LAX ,during normal hrs. Good luck and hope you had as nice stay.I retired here but do not work for the city

This area have a lot of place to have really good food. The only down fall is the homeless people walking up while sitting enjoying a meal. I think the city needs to POWER WASH the streets each morning.
