    L.B.- Art on Meter Boxes

    by marinarena Updated Apr 7, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The art of L.B.

    Perhaps the most vibrant, artistic part of the city is the street art. On downtown sidewalks there are eye-catching "meter boxes" (that may cover street meters?) with brightly drawn figures like this one below.

    Fondest memory: I miss the brightness of the town whenever I am away !

    Favorite thing: One thing that is wonderful, is being able to offer people a much safer way of crossing the streets and Long Beach thankfully thought of it. The walkway is part of the promenade that passes in front of the Long Beach Convention Center, Hyatt Hotel across the road to the waterfront areas.

    Yes, Squirrel Watching!

    by marinarena Written Mar 23, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Just when you think that you're in the most city area of the city, you see squirrels all over the place. I was near the campus of Long Beach State and the Veteran's Memorial Hospital when I got this shop of this nutty character. Let's call her Ashy, for the sake of this tip. Ashy was minding her own business along a wall, looking for a nut, definitely not of the human variety. Usually, squirrels get scared off by us but if we're close enough they'll try to scrape us a bit. I got close enough to get this shot without Ashy going crazy on me!
