Port Description

Long Beach, California Overview

A celebration of everything human and everything fabricated, never-dull Los Angeles is sprawling home to such disparate entities as Disneyland, the Sunset Strip, Watts, Venice Beach, the Lakers, and the Clippers. Within this beautiful basin between the mountains and the sea, the freeways, movie studios, and cellphones are as omnipresent as the smog and traffic. From movie stars and Valley Girls to Malibu surfers and Beverly Hills shopaholics, the colorful residents all prove that California dreamin' is alive and--with the help of some modern facelifts--hasn't lost any of its star power over the years.
