Get to Know Long Beach
Long Beach, depending upon the exact location, has a Mediterranean climate. Like most days in Southern California, days in Long Beach are mostly sunny. Summer months can frequently bring low clouds and fog, blanketing the city, but quickly clear up by the afternoon. Thanks to the Pacific westerly sea breeze, temperatures are kept mild; heat and humidity rarely coincide. If you’re looking to move to a city with lovely, yearlong climate, Long Beach is for you.
If you’re wondering what the city has to offer, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Are you an art enthusiast?
