Arlington, Texas is even bigger though. A city of 375,000 virtually no one has heard of.

They know if through the Dallas Cowboys stadium. I believe the Texas Rangers stadium is located there also

My family and friends certainly don't. Long Beach Airport (LGB) - Homepage Neither does the President. Choice two would be John Wayne. Spend any appreciable amount of time here and about the last word that comes to mind is "suburb".

Yeah, but he's the president . A lot of things he does we can't/don't do. He doesn't fly commercial

My wife's from there and so we go back quite a bit. Still a suburb. We always use LAX and I'm sure a majority does also.

When I lived in Long Beach I flew into/out of John Wayne (Orange County). Long Beach may have experienced some of it's growth thanks to being in the Greater Los Angeles metro, but if you have ever lived there or spent any real time there, then you'd know it really doesn't look or feel much like a typical L.A. suburb.

Maybe technically it could be considered a "suburb"... but it really is only a technicality.

If you actually insist on going through LAX to get here, that speaks volumes about your familiarity with the place. Nobody I know uses LAX if they can avoid it. Long Beach Airport is about the most convenient airport in the country - I can leave my home less than one hour before a non-stop to NYC- and its far easier to get to SNA than LAX. International departures are an exception, and Jet Blue is pushing for those.

You're entitled you your opinion because this is a purely subjective exercise. But with that in mind- the place simply does not self-identify as a suburb. At all.
