Long Beach's history can be seen in its rooftops

In the early 1990s, Long Beach was world-famous as a visitor destination. Hotels and dance halls, trolleys and roller coasters lured tourist to the city. The mild climate and pristine beaches beckoned people to the water's edge. With daily train service on the Southern Pacific Railroad and seven miles of beach "wide enough to drive twenty teams abreast", Long Beach was called the finest location in southern California for "heath, pleasure and profit". Today, as the City reflects on its past, it is actively planning for the sustainable future.

Although Long Beach's skyline has changed, a shadow of its history remains. Office buildings and modern hotels have replaced pavilions and bandstands of yesterday. Traces of its past, though, can still be seen by those who look carefully.
