Русская версия The Big Orange is one of the unofficial nicknames for Los Angeles, similar to Big Apple name for New York. Los Angeles is the orange due to being sunny, and we have already written about its warm satellite – Long Beach. It is now time to write about the City of Angels, of Flowers and Sunshine, a La-La Land or a Shaky Town, as Los Angeles is also named.
Русская версия At first sight it seems that Long Beach is just a sattelite of huge Los Angeles, but if you look at the numbers, it turns out that the city is the 34th largest in the United States and the 7th largest in California. It is also one of the largest ports in the world, famous for its plane production, oil industry, car details and electronics. At the same time, for an average tourist, Long Beach is first of all the sun and the ocean. The summer is here all year round, and the temperature goes below 20 C only in rare cases.
