Originally used for cattle and sheep ranches and known as Rancho los Cerritos, in the 1890’s investors formed the Long Beach Land and Water Company incorporating the city of Long Beach in 1897. From the beginning the city was a place of entertainment featuring the Pike amusement park. In the 1967 the city brought the HMS Queen Mary as an attraction and hotel. She was joined by the Aquarium of the Pacific in 1998. The city hosts surfing competitions, a marathon, a Gran Prix race, and is a modern luxury cruise port. If you want some fun spend some time in Long Beach with Eric as he shows off some of the cities attractions from the Shoreline Village.
