Long Beach is huge. There are great areas, good areas, questionable but not necessarily bad areas, and then there are areas you avoid at all costs. Do not live anywhere near the 710 Fwy if you can help it.

Really safe, and within two blocks of 2nd Street, where there is shopping, restaurants, convenience stores and nightlife. I will tell you this: if you want to find a great apartment in Belmont Shore, you pretty much have to drive up and down the streets and call the numbers on the For Rent signs. By the time they're published in the newspaper, they're already gone.
I am moving to the LA area this summer, and after checking craigslist- Long Beach seems to have what I'm interested in as well as the prices. I wondered whether you could name specific properties or landlords in the Belmont Shores area that are decent that I should keep my eyes open for- specifically, I'm looking for pet friendly apartments (I have a 60 lb dog).
Thank you so much!
