What a Move to Long Beach Has to Offer
Long Beach is the second-largest city of the greater Los Angeles area and the seventh-largest city in California. A part of Los Angeles County, Long Beach contains the Port of Long Beach, one of the world's largest shipping ports and the country's second-busiest container port. The port supports 30,000 jobs in the city and 1.4 million jobs in the United States. Long Beach also features a large number of offshore and underground oil wells, which contribute to the job market associated with the city's large oil industry. The city is home to companies in the auto parts, aircraft, home furnishings and audiovisual manufacturing sectors.
Incorporated in 1897, what is now Long Beach was originally the property of ranches belonging to Spanish settlers. Eventually, the city became a seaside resort town. The port was established, and the U.S. Navy created a base there. In 1921, oil was discovered, and Long Beach became known as an oil town. Douglas Aircraft began making bombers in the city during World War II, and it merged with McDonnell Aircraft in 1967. The combined entity, McDonnell Douglas, merged with Boeing in 1997, and the new company still produces transport planes at the same location, employing roughly 4,200 people.
Long Beach is home to several major tourist attractions, including the Aquarium of the Pacific and the Queen Mary, once the world's fastest ocean liner and now a hotel and museum. The city is also the location of the Long Beach Museum of Art, the Long Beach Museum of Latin American Art, the Long Beach Symphony and the Long Beach Opera company.
Long Beach is the site of California State University at Long Beach and Long Beach City College. The area is home to a number of hospitals and medical facilities, including Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, St. Mary Medical Center, Molina Healthcare and the VA Long Beach Healthcare System.
