Downtown Long Beach is quite underrated as Southern California destinations go. It’s very walkable and there’s vintage architecture and urban eye candy everywhere you look.

  1. “Downtown Long Beach is quite underrated as Southern California destinations go.”

    I was there for the first time a year or so ago – I totally agree! The Art Deco stuff is great! I have heard, however, that the Queen Mary is a MUST Miss!

  2. I haven’t been to the Queen Mary in years and don’t remember much about it. The day I spent poking around Long Beach itself, though, has stayed with me. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comment!

  3. Hi again. Yes, I have many more photos of the Salton Sea although I only got as far as the North Shore and Corvina Beach. I plan on returning again, maybe even taking a trip around the perimeter. The history, the ghost-town vibe, the ecological situation there, all fascinate me.

  4. Well, I hope you will post some of your Salton pics somewhere…Flickr? As you can tell from my post, it’s got a hold of me too, but I live on the east coast. And last time I visited my hometown and dragged my wife out to the Sea, she nearly killed me. It was about 110 in the shade, and the smell was horrific.

  5. Yes, I will go through them and post some of the better ones either here or on Flickr. As fascinated as I am by the Salton Sea, I can understand your wife’s reaction. It is bizarre and creepy (and stinky, gotta love all those dead fish!) As I mentioned, I’m planning to go back but I’m not sure about dragging someone else along. At the same time, it was kind of scary to be out there alone. I’ll let you know when I post more photos.
